Phil Scott

Guest Speaker on 13 July 2002

Phil is well known as a performer, writer and pianist. He has appeared in, composed and co-written revues such as Three Men and a Baby Grand and Abroad With Two Men for the Tilbury, Zen and Now for the Adelaide Festival, and Free Petrol and The Year of Living Comfortably for the Sydney Theatre Company.

As a writer, Phil has worked in television on The Gillies Report and Good News Week and has published four novels, the most recent being It's About Your Friend. With Jonathan Biggins, he has written a new translation of Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld for Opera Australia (scheduled for 2003). Originally a Musical Director, Phil began performing one-man cabaret shows at Pastels in the 80s. As an accompanist he has worked extensively with David Campbell and recently with Wendy Harmer. Phil's cabaret show Serious Cabaret has been seen in Sydney, Canberra, Darwin and at the inaugural Adelaide Cabaret Festival. A CD of the show was recorded live at the Glen St Theatre.

Phil's CD, which is in the MAG Library, is available for members

Phil Scott will shortly be performing at Melbourne's prestigious Chapel Off Chapel and in mid-August he will appear at Kabarett Junction at Bondi Junction, in Sydney.

The titles of Phil's other books are: One Dead Diva (1995), Gay Resort Murder Shock (1998) and Get Over It (2000). All three books will be published by Alyson Books of West Hollywood next year and should be available here from the gay bookstores.
