An award-winning stand-up comedian, actor and TV writer, Graham Kay has been described as “a definite act to follow, [who] has mastered the art of sarcasm” by NOW Magazine.

Graham won the coveted Just for Laughs 2013 Homegrown Comic Competition, the 2012 Yuk Yuk’s Oktoberfest Competition, and the 2011 Steam Whistle Comedy Competition. He was also nominated for a 2013 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Breakout Artist.

Graham has been featured on CBC-TV’s Halifax Comedy Festival special, The iChannel’s No Kidding, and The Being Frank Show. In addition, he’s a regular on MuchMusic's Video On Trial, and the current host of the popular Sirius/XM radio show and podcast, The Sport Brahs. Graham also wrote for the upcoming new CTV sitcom Spun Out, starring comedy legend Dave Foley. The show premieres on CTV in winter 2014.

Born in Dearborn, MI, just outside of Detroit. Scott started doing comedy in his first year of college. He took on a partner, entered a contest and came in dead last. It took another 10 years to get back on the stage.

After 25 brutal winters in Michigan Scott moved to Houston, Texas and began his way back on the stage with stand-up comedy. Well, as it is stated in the comic rule book, you need to wait tables before you can start doing comedy full time which he did. When the resturant closed its doors Scott figured this was a good jumping off point, and so started doing comedy full time.
