About

Scot Nery

Juggler, Comedian, Performance Artist, Host

Scot Nery is a renowned juggler, comedian, contortionist, performance artist, and host. The great Robin Williams called Scot “splendidly surreal.” Scot has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, at the HBO Comedy Festival, in films for Disney and Sony, including the hit horror spoof Scary Movie 5.

He is a featured performer for Cirque-a-Palooza, produced and directed by Stefan Haves, a director for seven Cirque du Soleil productions who calls Scot “sensational in every way.” He performs regularly at private and industry events for Fortune 500 companies — from major film studios to Delta, McDonald’s, and Mattel. He was recently featured in the promotional campaign for the hit FX series American Horror Story.

Scot’s success grows out of a lifetime of preparation and performing, which began at age seven when a neighbor started teaching him magic tricks. By age eleven, he was getting paid to perform at birthday parties and banquets. He taught himself to juggle, ride a unicycle, clown and mime. After high school, despite advice to the contrary, Nery left home to make a living as a juggler. He packed all of his possessions in the trunk of his car and toured the United States, honing his craft and pushing boundaries. The tour included the streets of New Orleans, New York City, Boston, Baltimore, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and more – often performing 5 or 6 shows a day.

Scot’s relentless experimentation in unpredictable circumstances led him to discover his signature acts with pancakes, duct tape, knives, buckets and other odd objects. His success in public spaces lead to his success on the stage… like Crash Course, an eccentric cooking show that the San Francisco Chronicle described as “Emeril meets Johnny Knoxville!”

In 2001, his work drew the attention of country music megastars Brooks and Dunn who invited him to tour with them as their opening act– playing 15,000 seat amphitheaters in more than 40 states across the U.S. Kix Brooks, one half of the famous duo, calls Scot “probably the greatest entertainer in America today!” Scot continues to perform live, in the United States and worldwide — most recently in Scotland, England, Japan and New Zealand.

Scot is also also developing a number of projects for film, television and the web. His work on TV, movies, and videos continues to grab attention from audiences and critics. Comedian Howie Mandel told Scot “You wouldn’t lose on America’s Got Talent. You are Funny and Talented.” EventMakers says, ”Scot is one of the most hilarious comedy & variety acts that I have experienced in my 20 years of event planning… USE HIM! He is the best.”
