Scott Higgins Launches Branch in Western Connecticut
Scott Higgins could boast the perfect resume for a comedian: in high school thrown out of biology class for doing an impression of the teacher; voted class clown; knee-deep in torment for performing too-perfect impressions of family members at family functions. Finally, in college between studies, slices of cold pizza and late night jaunts to convenient stores Higgins managed to enroll in a theater class. As it turned out, his professor performed stand-up at a local comedy club. When the temptation to perform became way too tempting, Higgins stepped out for his premier comedy spot at Groucho’s Comedy Club in CT in 1988. He was hooked: the chuckles and howls from the audience were like honey and he knew that he was somewhere he belonged. Higgins everyman relaxed style draws an audience in, then keeps them. His family based observational humor is fresh but familiar to us all! He has worked with some of Boston and New York’s top talent such as Jim Norton, Bill Burr, John Pinette and Jeff Garlin. He appeared in the film “Street Players” a Road Rambler Films Production. Scott has been featured on XM Sirius Radio and in comedy clubs all over New England.
