Winner Best Emerging Artist 2019 Melbourne Fringe

Following a sold-out premiere at Melbourne Fringe, Scout Boxall makes their Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut with their first solo show, Good Egg

In 2001, Scout's mum got on the rosé, watched Amélie and decided to give Scout and their sister El a quirky blunt fringe and bob haircut, condemning her kids to three formative years of living down the nickname 'egg head'.

Since this early baptism of yolk and fire, Scout has embraced their high forehead, capitalised on a knack for pre-emptive self-deprecating humour and reclaimed the word 'egg' as a gender-neutral term of endearment.

Scout Boxall brings their unique blend of sketch, clown, stand-up and low-fi, prop-heavy misandry to the stage in their raw first solo hour – Good Egg. And it's a bloody a cracking time.

WARNING / you will never watch the Federal Budget or listen to the music of Enya the same way again.
