Born to teenage parents in Iowa, Scott has risen from his meager beginnings into being solidly lower middle class! Life in the Cornstalk Ghetto of Iowa taught him strong moral values that he has for the most part, ignored. His motto is when life gives you lemons, take a big bite into it, because the world will generally leave you with a sour taste in your mouth.
A graduate of the University of Iowa, Scott tried working a couple of real jobs, only to discover that the business world likes you to get up before noon. Editors Note: Hey, I’m not kidding, they do. For the next year or so, Scott wandered around aimlessly, considering such soul-sucking professions as Terminix bug man and Honey Baked Ham manager.
After attending a comedy show, where he was not too impressed with the entertainment, Scott decided to give it try himself at an open-mic. Within a couple of years, Scott was starting to work the Midwest comedy circuit. Scott has performed in 35 states during his career. He has just briefly made a couple of television appearances, as his already inflated ego would be insufferable if he added TV star to his many accomplishments.
- In 2001, Scott self-published a book of essays titled Dysfunctional Thoughts of a 21st Century Man.
- In 2003, Scott released Unsanitized for Your Protection, a comedy CD, which has been in regular rotation since then on XM Satellite radio’s comedy Channel 150.
- In 2007, Scott offered up an intimate look at his stand-up act on DVD, which was aptly named Scott Long’s 3 Ring Circus.
Scott will be starting his 5th season as a writer for the NFL on Fox pregame show, helping craft the comedy that appears in the Frank’s Picks segment.
In April of 2004, Scott joined Will Carroll Presents and partnered with Will through a couple of name changes until the site name became the Juice Blog. Scott has been the sole writer at the site since August of 2006, as Carroll left to focus on writing projects that actually include a paycheck.
