Scott Hansen has made over two million people laugh with numerous, national TV appearances that include shots on HBO, Showtime, Comedy Central, PBS and E! His joke-filled live performances have set attendance records at comedy clubs, concerts and corporations nationwide.
He has performed live with almost every comedy star including George Carlin, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Mahr and the musicians he has worked with include, Prince, The Bee Gees and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Comedy club credits include The Comedy Store, The Improv and The Comedy and Magic Club.
Scott has written comedy material performed on the “Tonight Show“ or “Letterman” by Jay Leno, Louie Anderson, Roseanne Barr and many more! He is critically acclaimed and has been dubbed the “King of Twin Cities Comedy” by the St. Paul Dispatch.
Scott's appeal is his ability to mix improvisation with award-winning material that can be tailored for the clients needs. His comedic depiction of the "Minnesota situation" provides unique fodder and perspective that has made over a million Minnesotans laugh. He has become the voice of local comedy, the conscience of Minnesota and an icon that fills clubs and concerts statewide.
Scott takes the stage with a teddy bear demeanor, which draws the unsuspecting crowd into his whimsical world. The audience knows within an instant that they are not watching television and that this is going to be a one-of-a- kind comedy experience. Scott has achieved notoriety for his sharp audience interaction and patented “hit and run” style of comedy. Scott laughs at his own foibles and lulls you into a false sense of security.
As he takes the stage, Scott quickly builds a comical camaraderie that sets the crowd at ease with a style that seems above suspicion. Innocent and casual, his repartee is like talking with a neighbor over the fence as he grills a cheeseburger.
Scott then hits hard with a few powerful jokes and then asks an innocent audience member a question. Scott's banter has all the empathy of Dr. Phil, the curiosity of Sherlock Holmes and the compassion of a polar bear stalking a wounded walrus. Yet, unwittingly the audience takes the bait and is no longer a “watcher” but is a part of Scotts' show. Soon, even the most stubborn audience member is engaged and the real laughs begin.
Each Scott Hansen show is a comedic therapy session where the audience laughs at itself.
How does this happen? Is it some kind of a trick? No, it's comedy. Award winning, critically acclaimed, comedy!
