Feature: Scott Higgins

Scott Higgins could boast the perfect resume for a comedian: in high school he was thrown out of biology class for doing an impression of the teacher; voted class clown; and knee-deep in torment for performing too-perfect impressions of family members at family functions. Finally, in college between studies, slices of cold pizza, and late night jaunts to convenient stores, Higgins managed to enroll in a theater class. As it turned out, his professor performed stand-up at a local comedy club and encouraged Scott to give it a try. Higgins stepped out for his premier comedy spot in 2002 at the Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall, Boston MA, and quickly became the go to act for many clubs.  In 2014, he started producing his Comedy All Stars show at the Bradley Playhouse that sold out in its second year of shows and continues today. In 2020 the Comedy All Stars started running in multiple theaters.
