The Worst Of Scottee (Scottee Inc)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

A parody of confession for the reality TV generation, Scottee regales us with tales of the very worst things he’s ever done, from inside a photo booth. Part musical, part stand-up, the production begins with flamboyance and theatricals. As the show progresses, however, and everyone gets more comfortable, the confessions become increasingly heartfelt; the veneer of silliness sheds and we are left with Scottee; on stage, alone, beyond the protective shell of the photo booth. The transition from ridiculous to devastating is so subtle you won’t notice it, until he has stripped himself bare.  A rare and utterly bewitching performer, with a show that is honest, simple and cathartic.

Assembly George Square, until 24 Aug (not 4,5,11,12,18,19), 8.40pm.
