Scott has enjoyed a long career that has encompassed a wide-variety of media endeavours.
From his auspicious beginning with his own company, Greecedweezil at the tender age of 15 providing promotions assistance in the concert industry he established himself as a radio and TV personality and spent over 20 years in the Vancouver, B.C. market.
He was the afternoon or morning personality on 1040 Kicks, JR Country, CKNW, Rock 101 & 96.1 FM and was also heard on The Fox, WX 1130, CJAZ, CFUN & LG-73
Scott also hosted the 60 minute syndicated radio program Discumentary. (Heard twice daily in every major market across Canada) and Radio Martial Arts heard in markets from L.A. to Philadelphia and Toronto, Canada. (Scott has also been the Michael Buffer of the West Coast and over the last 30 years has been the ring announcer for everything from the WWF (if you ever need to feel inferior as a man just stand beside The Rock for a few minutes … he is a freak of nature!)
to closed circuit Championship Boxing seen around the world as well as Kick-Boxing and MMA. (In fact I was cast as famed boxing announcer Jim Lampley in the TV series 7 Days and also played the ring announcer in the movie Ladies and the Champ with Olympia Dukakis and Marion Ross and also in Scary Movie 4 with Ana Faris.
While maintaining his radio show he then branched out into television and was the host of the nationally syndicated 30 minute interview program, The Performers for many years.
He also hosted the weekly show, At the Movies and has a new series starting on KVOS in Washington and B.C. entitled Top Performance TV.
Ironically the greatest TV exposure came from his 5 year tenure as the TV, radio and print spokesperson for the Mr. Mikes restaurant chain. Scott was always heavily involved in charity work both on-camera and in the trenches in fact Scott was the only person to host EVERY telethon!
Yep … some people hosted the Variety Club, some did Timmy’s, some were aligned with Jerry Lewis but Scott hosted ALL of them! (Just for good measure he also hosted a few others including PBS pledge drives in Seattle for any comedy (Red Dwarf, Black Adder, Faulty Towers, Monty Python etc.) or music-related presentations.
After leaving one of his radio gigs the promotions department did a tally and found that he actually hosted 95% of the radio stations entire events & appearances.
Scott is an expert on putting together award-winning weddings and was a co-author of the book, Remarkable Receptions released in the U.S. in 2017 with all proceeds to charity[/one_half]
Scott has written hundreds of commercials, videos and magazine articles. In January of 2017 he coauthored the U.S. book Remarkable Receptions which has been raising awareness of the secrets to a successful wedding while simultaneously raising funds for charity!
As a stunt driver Scott developed his skills at the wheel of his 1955 and 56 Chevy stunt cars that he used to jump the elevated railroad tracks in front of his farm-house on the flats of South Burnaby.
Scott drove stunt cars at the PNE with oval-track legend Al “The Cat” Sylvester
At the time no one would have guessed that this would lead to performances at the annual P.N.E. in Vancouver where he would jump cars and hit the edge of a ramp at full acceleration to see how many roll-overs he could squeeze out of a Honda Civic. (He is paying for it now as both his chiropractor and physiotherapist on speed dial lol)
He loves anything with a motor but particularly drag racing and toiled as the track announcer at Mission Raceway Park for a few years. He has also gone 275 miles per hour in a 60,000 horsepower Peterbilt truck powered by 3 fighter-plane jet engines.
One of his charity stunts was his (along with his pal Paul Wiggins) attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Custard Sitting back in 1986. It is just what it sounds like … you sit in a bathtub full of hot custard. (Scott thought that this was a perfect task for his limited skill-set lol) The benefactor was the Heart Fund and the goal was to eclipse the old record with a new mark of 78 hours. The location was Chicago Pizza Works. (In Harry Hammer’s old Furniture Warehouse location at 996 Homer in downtown Vancouver)
It turns out the record was successfully broken thereby raising awareness and garnering the Heart Fund close to $150,000 in free advertising by garnering the full-page on the cover of the Vancouver Province and Sun newspapers and daily interviews on radio stations all over North America.
The capper was at the splashy cocktail reception celebrating our record smashing success where they brought out a silver platter with a silver domed lid which was then lifted with a flourish revealing our custard-crusted shorts from the stunt. (The strangest part of all is that the shorts raised over $200.00 … hopefully they were incinerated soon after! lol)
As a promotion for the Vancouver Psychic Fair, Scott agreed to walk on hot coals with his producer Dan Harsent, a stunt that was shown on the evening news. Unfortunately the expert who was going to teach them how to do it without barbecuing their lower extremities was held up in customs and arrived only 40 minutes before the stunt. “He blew into the room all sweaty and breathless and said, “Okay it usually takes me 5 hours to train someone but you’ll just really have to pay attention!” (I’ve never paid closer attention to anything in my LIFE!! Lol)
