3. Denise Scott ~ Comedian/Broadcaster/Writer/Actor/Presenter

Her show Regrets, was awarded the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Directors’ Choice Award. In addition, Denise won a Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer. Then she made her long awaited debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and released her second book The Tour.
