Welcome to the stage… Scottie Morrison!

EMERGING STANDUP TALENT:

Over the years, The Bug has spotted a number of blokes we reckon would be shoo-ins as standup comics and give the likes of Jimeoin, Wil Anderson and Dave Hughes a real run for their money.

But this is the first time a comic wanna-be has contacted The Bug and pleaded with us to give him a chance before a live audience.

Scottie Morrison is his name and he phoned us from Cooktown yesterday and read out some of his new material penned that very day.

Asked why he was in north Queensland, Scott told us he wanted to be as far away from South Australia as he could possibly be today.

Anyway, his fresh jokes were roll-on-the-floor-laughing so we immediately booked the back bar at the Cooktown Hotel and let Scottie loose on a small but appreciate crowd last night.

It’s only when we saw video of the performance that we realised how much he looked like our Australian Prime Minister!

So, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the microphone…

SCOTTIE MORRISON!
