10 Things You Always Wanted to Know about Denise Scott

denise-scottMelbourne-based comedian Denise Scott currently stars in the Aussie drama series Winners and Losers; she has been a regular on the ABC on Spicks and Specks and on Network Ten’s The Project.

She headlines at Currumbin RSL on Thursday. This is one funny lady.

When I was a kid I thought the world… was scary; every night I lay in bed terrified, waiting for the communists to invade, as the nuns promised they would.

My mother always told me… I’d look good with a home perm.

I think that God is… a being I don’t believe exists unless I’m in an extreme crisis.

Tony Abbott should… not wear Speedos or be leader of Australia. Both cause embarrassment.

When it comes to doing my bit for the environment… I compost, recycle and never do housework (thereby avoiding using cleaning products).

What annoys my husband the most about me is… my saying I never do housework because I care about the environment.

I love embarrassing my kids by… Actually I hate embarrassing my kids but when you’re in an un-airconditioned house and it’s 45 degrees what else can you do but walk around in your underpants?

At school I realised… I would much rather be at home living in a complete fantasy world.

The surprising thing about the world is… football. I cannot believe how in this modern complex world a group of men pursuing one ball can still create so much passion, endless discussion, news, violence and celebration.

What I like to give people when I’m on stage is… a good laugh but rather than give, I’m more motivated when people pay.

Denise Scott with Fiona McGary and MC Mandy Nolan at the Currumbin RSL on Thursday at 7.30pm. Members $39/ non-members $45.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
