Our Best of Gigmasters comedian for 2014 and 2015 has been seen on NBC, FOX-TV, ESPN, and the Bob and Tom Show! Scott Long consistently gets 5 star reviews from small events to Fortune 500 companies like GE, John Deere, and State Farm. His non-profanity, but hilarious show works any group, which is why Scott was chosen to perform at all-age shows in 2016 at the Wisconsin State Fair and the Bass Fishing Championships. The message is how you can grow up in small town Iowa and keep those values all while performing on the top stages of NYC, LA, and NYC. Scott's Grandmothers are from Nebraska and Kansas, his Grandfather is from Missouri, and the rest of his family is from Iowa and Minnesota. Scott's profanity-free show tells the stories of family that only could be from these places:)
Scott's known for his versatility! Company Events, FUNDRAISERS, Roasts, etc. What puts Scott above others is how he can customize material for each event and the AMAZING improvisation he incorporates--as he makes the audience his co-stars! There is no better act for a fundraiser, as Scott's poignant story of having a child with a disability connects on all levels. The father of a 10 year old girl on the autism spectrum, Scott does many fundraisers for Special Needs groups, as he's committed to raising money and awareness for people with developmental disabilities. His latest comedy CD, Good Dad...Not a Great Dad is a big selling standup release which can be found or heard on iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, & Sirius/XM.
Over the past 13 seasons Scott's written Frank Caliendo's comedy sketches for the NFL Pregame show on FOX & ESPN, plus 3 Super Bowls and 2 NASCAR Award Shows. Let him bring his emmy-nominated comedy writing to your event!
Scott's WARNING: Hiring a comedian is not like hiring a plumber. You go for the lowest bid & there's a great chance you could wind up w/someone who isn't funny & even worse--could be offensive in their material--despite their claims. I've been performing standup for the past 20 years, at all the major comedy clubs and have done 100's of corporate comedy events to rave reviews. (see below:) Don't let a few 100 dollars stand in the way of having a great event your attendees will be talking about for a long time. The inexperienced comics on here cause me 2 bring my price quotes down from my regular agency fee so Gigmasters is good for you!
An example of what Scott's professional clean comedy offers. This review was from a show in October 2014 which had an average age of 75 & even one woman over 100.
We hosted a client appreciation event and Scott did a great job in his presentation. Our client list included many retirees and Scott was able to relate very well to them. I have received many compliments from the attendees with how much they enjoyed the evening.

BONUS: Besides performing at most of the major comedy clubs in the US, Scott is an Emmy Nominated Writer who over past 13 seasons has written Frank Caliendo's comedy sketches for the NFL Pregame show on FOX & ESPN.
WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT SCOTT
We look forward to using Scott at our next event.
Jay of the Indianapolis Colts
DO NOT BOOK SCOTT…..if you hate laughing so hard your stomach hurts! Scott was hilarious! Some of our State Farm events can be a bit stuffy, Scott broke through all of that and had everyone rolling. His improvisation and quick wit was very impressive. So too was the fact that he tailored a lot of his material to our industry. Honestly, I want to host another event just so I can book Scott again.
Justin of State Farm Insurance
Scott presented at our corporate event and was very friendly and accommodating. His interaction and engagement with the crowd was spot on. In addition, Scott was open and willing to be flexible regarding our special event requests which ensured a great and memorable night. Scott is truly a class act!
