The death-defying comic is still spinning yarns having survived three cardiac arrests, bipolar disorder, hedonistic excess and living with HIV. Tales of Glasgow life, gay life and family life included. Not for the easily offended.

Scott Agnew’s recent nomination for the inaugural Sir Billy Connolly Spirit of Glasgow Award at the 2023 Glasgow International Comedy Festival is just the latest of accolades for the critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning Glaswegian comedian.

Having won Scottish Comedian of the Year in 2008 he has gone on to huge critical success with his Edinburgh fringe shows in 2009, 2012, 2016 and 2017 – all of which have seen him garner 5 star reviews and being named in The List’s Hot 100, win Best Show at Scottish Comedy Awards, The Icon Entertainer of The Year and Proud Scotland Entertainer of the Year. Not forgetting, the pinnacle, named as Attitude magazine’s 94th Most Eligible Gay Bachelor in the World in 2017.

Offstage Scott’s life has been equally “busy” – leaving behind a career in journalism and selling his house on a whim in 2003 was the start of a years-long battle with cyclothymia (a form of bi-polar) taking him on a path to a multitude of addictions including stand-up, crystal meth and injecting drug use before being diagnosed with HIV in 2015 and eventually surviving a heart attack and three cardiac arrests in 2021.

He’s a regular host and act at The Stand and Glee comedy clubs and has performed at comedy festivals and clubs across the globe from Edinburgh and Leicester Comedy Festivals to Prague and Perth and Adelaide with gigs in Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia to boot. He’s a regular panellist on BBC Scotland’s Breaking The News as well as appearing in BBC Scotland’s TV show Comedy Underground. He has performed to crowds of 12,000 plus supporting Kevin Bridges and supported Jim Jeffries and Dylan Moran on the Scottish legs of their tours.
