Scout Boxall Good Egg

Winner Best Emerging Artist 2019 Melbourne Fringe
Nominee Best Comedy 2019 Melbourne Fringe 

National Finalist 2018 Raw Comedy

Following a sold-out and award-winning premiere at Melbourne Fringe, Scout Boxall makes their Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut with their first solo show,Good Egg.

In 2001, Scout's mum got on the rosé, watched Amélie and decided to give Scout and their sister El a quirky blunt fringe and bob haircut, condemning her kids 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.


A handy little genre-defying sketch-clown-standup-drag multitool, Scout brings their unique brand of low-fi, prop-heavy absurdity to the stage in their raw first solo hour – Good Egg. And it's a bloody a cracking time.

"Outrageous!" Herald Sun

"That old chestnut" The Music
