Proving that gay comedy doesn't have to be camp to be funny, Scott Agnew has taken the Scottish comedy scene by the scruff of the neck in recent years.

With three sell out solo shows under his belt ("Scott Agnew" The Merchant City Festival, September 2005 and "Oh hello!" Glasgow International Comedy Festival, March 2006 and "Hair Product and Underpants" Merchant City Festival, September 2006) the giant comic has made a big impact with audiences.

A regular at The Stand comedy clubs, he has equally charmed and shocked crowds with his unapologetically homosexual set, that finally brings real gay men out the closet for all to see.

His engaging manner and his abilities as a raconteur has seen him win fans around the country and also saw him perform every night at 2006's Glasgow International Comedy Festival, working alongside Brendan Burns, Lucy Porter and Des Clarke.

He returns to the festival in 2007 with his show "Bingo" - a game of interactive sexual history prize bingo. Where the audience get to watch the balls drop and see where the show goes. Tales of unadulterated homosexual shenanigans guaranteed.

Scott's chronicle of a pre-mature quarter life crisis is not to be missed, covering tales of homosexual misadventure and general recklessness in his early 20s. Hear about fingering ferrets, threesomes and religion as well as gentler tales about Glaswegian tramps, his family, the darts and Celebrity TV culture proving he's more than a one-trick pony and an excellent all-round entertainer.

The 26 year old is also one of Scotland's premier comperes and works especially well in bear-pit environments - as he proved hosting the weekly Big Bluu Comedy Gong Show in Glasgow.

His abilities as an MC has seen him host everything from a Transgender Charity Fashion Show as well as become the regular host of the Emergenza Music Festival. The festival culminated in two eight-hour long live finals at the Glasgow Carling Academy in front of 4000 music fans. JAR Music have renewed his contract with the music competition for 2007.

Aside from his own stand-up act, Scott occasionally performs a Chic Murray tribute which drew plaudits from the Scottish comedy legend's very own daughter, Annabel - who has since taught Scott how to yodel like her father did. His impersonation as Chic has seen Scott perform the act as far a-field as Portsmouth.

The former journalist is also a talented comedy writer and his blog of 2005 drew plaudits from readers around the world. You can read old blog entries at www.myspace.com/scottagnew and keep up with his current adventures.

In the past Scott has also worked for corporate clients such as 3 Mobile on team building days and has taught comedy to disadvantaged youths around Glasgow as a way of building confidence.
