Scottee: The Worst of Scottee

Thu 31 Oct 2013 | 7.30pm | Duration: 1hr 15 mins | £11/£8

Scottee encounters past flames, ex-friends and people who no longer like him in attempt to find out where he went wrong…

Scottee wants to find out what people really think of him. Why did he pretend to have AIDS? What prompted him to steal money from his nan? Why did he tell everyone his friend committed suicide when she hadn’t, and what caused all this behavior in the first place?

Performed in a photo booth, The Worst Of Scottee exposes you to four snapshots of his troublesome teens, presenting you with even more reasons not to like him. This is Scottee at his very worst.

Scottee is a performer, director and writer from North London. He won Time Out Performer of the Year in 2010 and is currently an associate artist at Roundhouse and Duckie. He is a regular contributor on Radio 4’s Loose Ends, the creator of the ‘beauty pageant for fat people’, Hamburger Queen, and presenter of iTunes Top 10 podcast After The Tone. The Worst of Scottee is his debut solo tour.

Director Chris Goode is “a theatre-maker who’s up there with the very best” (The Guardian). His work has included two Fringe First award-winning shows and has been described as ‘A cool, sobering and quietly passionate reality check’ (The Scotsman).

Praise for The Worst of Scottee at the Edinburgh Fringe 2013:

“…buckets of charisma, a powerful visual sensibility rooted in bold colour choices and a surprisingly rich and riveting singing voice…”
★★★★ Time Out London

“Scottee is a brash, brassy hoot… brave, heartfelt and full of integrity. Just lovely.”

“daring and yet quite vulnerable”
★★★★★ Skinny

“charismatic and oozing with energy… an excellent storyteller”
★★★★ Broadway Baby

“l’enfant-terrible and glittery bitch of the London performance scene… seeing this peerless queen in such a way recognises our smallness”

“A progressive sensibility and tits-n-teeth showmanship… it’s as if he’s gone off the end of the pier, dredged the waters and returned bearing slime with a glint in his eye. He puts on one hell of a show”
Time Out

“[Scottee] proves that experimental theatre can be witty and accessible, frightening and wondrous in equal measure”
★★★★★ What’s On Stage
