    Up & Comic Souls

    Boom Chicago, Amsterdam

From marine biologist and artist manager to stand-up comedians. Forrest Shaw (US) and Scott Baker-Marflitt (UK) both left their former professions behind to become stand-up comedians, and they’re coming to select cities in Europe this fall. American Forrest Shaw is best known as comedy star Jim Jeffries’ writer and partner both on stage and on the popular talk show The Jim Jefferies Show. The former marine biologist, now stand-up comedian, is coming to Europe for the first time to talk about among other things…cats. His other topics include gambling addiction, medical issues, and growing up in Miami with a hippie mother. Scott Baker-Marflitt is British, but currently resides in Norway. He’s a breath of fresh air on the comedy stage, and a veteran of the music industry who used to work as an artist manager.  In his shows he shares his absurd experiences from the music industry and his deep-seated frustrations as an Englishman living in a foreign country, all with a delightful edge. As he puts it: "I’m an only child! It was either start writing to perform stand-up as a catharsis or start punching people at will. But apparently punching people that´s not allowed, or something.”

Van marinebioloog en artiestenmanager tot stand-up comedians. Forrest Shaw (US) en Scott Baker-Marflitt (UK) hebben beiden hun carrière achter zich gelaten en met succes, want na de zomer komen ze samen naar diverse comedyclubs in Europa. Forrest Shaw ken je waarschijnlijk als partner in crime van Jim Jefferies, zowel on stage als in zijn rol als Schrijver voor 'The Jim Jefferies Show’. Hij komt voor het eerst zonder Jefferies naar Europa om te praten over katten, gokverslavingen, medische zaken en hoe het is om op te groeien in Miami met een hippie-moeder. Scott Baker-Marflitt is van oorsprong Brits, maar woont tegenwoordig in Noorwegen. Hij is een frisse wind in de comedywereld met zijn grappen over zijn ervaring als artiestenmanager in de muziekindustrie, maar ook over zijn ervaringen als Engelsman in het het buitenland. En dat allemaal net op het randje. Of zoals hij zegt:  "I’m an only child! It was either start writing to perform stand-up as a catharsis or start punching people at will. But apparently punching people that´s not allowed, or something.”
