About the Show
In 2001, Scout’s mum watched Amelie and decided to give Scout a quirky blunt fringe and bob haircut, condemning her kid 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.
18 years later, 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. It’s going to be a cracking time.
Scout Boxall is a queer, nonbinary performer living and working in Naarm (Melbourne). After bursting onto the comedy scene in 2018, they made it to the National Finals of the MICF Raw Comedy Competition, travelled to France to study clowning and gigged at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Now a regular fixture of Melbourne’s comedy scene, Scout’s practice encompasses drag, clown, sketch and stand-up.
When they’re not writing and performing, Scout can be found working as a court transcriptionist, refereeing roller derby or sewing period garb for LARP (live action roleplay). Good Egg is Scout’s first solo work.
