Scott Faulconbridge was nominated for a 2009 Canadian Comedy Award as Best Male Stand up. Hilarious story telling about his family life mishaps and a quick improvisational wit have led critics to claim that he is “among the best stand-up comedians on the continent”. It has also earned him regular appearances on CBC radio’s wildly popular ‘The Debater’s’ where he goes head to head with the best comedy minds in Canada and the United States including the likes of Hannibal Buress and Alonzo Bodden. Scott has also been seen on NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’ and can be heard regularly in the U.S. On Sirius XM radio.
He began his career as a member of one of Canada’s most popular and acclaimed improv troupes, On the Spot, a two-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Improv Troupe. Scott then honed his unique improvisational stage presence with a quirky observational style. His act still blends observational about his traditional family life with spontaneous improv fun but he now also includes audience pleasing original songs that have quickly become fan favourites.
Scott has appeared on Showtime’s ‘Full Frontal Comedy’, NBC’s ‘Friday Night Videos’, CTV’s ‘Comedy Now’ and CBC’s ‘Comics’. As an actor also appeared in numerous films and television shows, most notably Disney’s ‘The Greatest Game Ever Played’ starring Shia Laboeuf and directed by Bill Paxton and In the movie ‘Abandon’ with Benjamin Bratt. He has performed in larger venues across North America as an opening act for Stephen Wright, Gloria Estevan, The Eagles and most recently in the national Arts Centre in Ottawa opening for Howie Mandell.
