Well by inviting Keith Scott to your next function you’ll go a long way to achieving just that. It might be anything from a swank, black tie awards dinner, a casual Christmas office bash, product launch, conference warm-up or wedding. Whatever the function, Keith Scott’s unique brand of comedy will inject your evening / luncheon / breakfast with just the right topper to leave your clients richly amused.
Keith has spent more than 30 years as Australia’s leading cartoon voice and impressionist. His career began in 1972 at the Sydney office of cartoon studio Hanna-Barbara Productions. Two years later he was established in voice work on TV and radio commercials, where he began to put his amazing range of voice imitations to work.
Stand up comedy always attracted Keith so throughout the next 10 years he made scores of appearances on TV variety shows including Hey Hey It’s Saturday and The Midday Show, with his stand up appearances at corporate functions proving highly popular with multitudes of companies.
As an impressionist, Keith Scott has the widest range in his field, with over 500 distinct take-offs of everyone from old time movie stars to local and international politicians. When you add his original characters and accents, he can truly be called the Man of a Thousand Voices.
In 1984, Keith began working for Yoram Gross Film Studio, eventually supplying all the male character voices for the animated TV series Blinky Bill, Tabaluga and Skippy. He can also be heard daily, skewering the reputations of media and political figures on the national radio satire How Green was my Cactus, now in its eighteenth year.
But it is as an expert “duplicator” of the great Hollywood cartoon voices that Keith has become internationally recognised for. In 1990 he was made the official voice of Warner Brothers’ “Looney Tunes” characters for the Southern Hemisphere and has re created Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and others in countless animated commercials and promotional activities.
In 1992, Universal Studios in Hollywood hired Keith as the authorised voice of Bullwinkle and Moose from the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon series. And in 1997 the Walt Disney Company flew Keith to Hollywood to be the narrator of their highly successful comedy feature film George of the Jungle.
Throughout January to June 2000, Keith was in Los Angeles, doing all the narration work and the voice of Bullwinkle for the new Rocky & Bullwinkle movie. He worked “side by side” with Robert DeNiro, Whoopi Goldberg & Jason Alexander.
And in 2011 & 2012, Keith was recognised by his peers in the entertainment Industry when he received the Mo Award for Australia’s best entertainer in the comedy field. A sophisticated comic, why not invite Keith to MC your evening and introduce your various speakers. He’s done everything from a Royal Variety Gala for the Commonwealth Games to performing before Royalty, politicians including four Prime Ministers who sat spellbound hearing their own voices saying things they wouldn’t normally dare!!

Keith was very entertaining, personable and professional. A great time was had by all.
Mia Trillo / Progress Software
WOW. What a presenter / MC!! Keith ensured our night was a success with his professional manner as MC and his comedy presentations through the night. Everyone enjoyed his act and we are still receiving positive feedback from the night with most people indicating that they hadn’t laughed so much or had such a good night out for years. No hesitation in recommending or using Keith again.
David Friend / TIFFEN & Co
Definitely worth an encore performance at some stage. Highlight of the dinner – probably the highlight of the conference seminar.
Sonya Maloney / Aust Credit Union Industry.
Keith was very approachable and easy to get along with before the performance. His energy and enthusiasm during his performance were contagious and he got the crowd going and had them in stitches. He didn’t want to get off the stage he was on such a roll!
Ian McLean / NT Cattlemen’s Association.
Although we were running well ahead of time, Keith did a fantastic show even though he was a little rushed. Brilliant!! Thoroughly entertaining and topical. Great performer.
Central Coast Soccer Association.
Keith was fantastic entertainment for our annual staff party. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as everyone had tears of laughter rolling down their faces. Highly recommended.
Leslea Milburn / Greater Building Society Limited
“Keith was an absolute hit …. Comments from the crowd were that this was the best presentation night they had been to. It is just a shame that he is so unique that we can’t have him back every year! He had to work around some difficult props (a banquet table) but was a thorough professional.”
Macquarie Soccer Association
The entertainer, Keith Scott, was absolutely brilliant. The feedback from our guests was extremely positive and he targeted the audience perfectly (we had a mixed range of ages and there was something for everyone). Keith rang the week prior to the event to finalise any details and everything went smoothly on the night. He was also very accommodating in terms of being involved in the presentation of some awards on the night.
Australian Stainless Steel
Keith is a genius and a rare talent. An inspirational hidden star. He was a huge hit at our function and appealed to team members of all ages. A fantastic night!!
Tony Long / Boyce Chartered Accountants
Keith is to be complimented on his wonderful presentations. His performance drew many accolades from our guests.
Peter Frankish – Insulflex
Keith was punctual and looked very presentable. He immediately went into his role as MC which he did admirably. His comedy show was brilliant and entertaining.
Elaine Holbutt – Cure For Life Foundation
It was a fantastic night. Everyone is talking about it. Keith was a hit a great MC and a lovely man to talk to. I am so glad we took up your recommendation for him. The roulette table was also well enjoyed and as you can imagine, it became the men’s club while the wives boogied their booties off on the dance floor. Thank you for all you did to help make our event a success.
Pacific Medical Imaging
Knocked them out … Fantastic …. They are still talking about him.
Canberra Convention Bureau
Keith had to follow a very entertaining act in the Three Waiters. It would not have been easy for him but his professionalism showed through and he kept the crowd interested and highly amused.
Carbine Club of Port Moresby
Keith is a consummate performer and professional MC. Keith is very personable and put our guests of 240 local and intrastate business people at ease within the first few minutes. His mastery of impersonation and his ability to weave everyday topical events and people into his routine was an absolute hit with everyone. We would highly recommend Keith to anyone looking for that special touch with personality to boot who can carry off your event with ease.
David Carter – AgriPlex Group
Keith Scott was a major hit at our fundraising dinner. He was the perfect entertainment for our room of CEO’s – his subtle humour was delivered perfectly and all in the room laughed so much. Keith undertook two encores and he could have kept talking all night. We will certainly use Keith again and we have no hesitation in recommending him to this calibre of guest.
Janet McManus – Cerebral Palsy Alliance
Keith was great. Very professional and easy to work with, Keith read the audience well and had their utmost attention. 10/10!!
Kate Holland – Canberra Business Council
Our guests had the opportunity to select from a “menu” of Acts for the after dinner entertainment they preferred, and the selected act would then perform a private routine at their dinner table. The concept of individual entertainment was a confronting style for entertainers & audience alike! For Keith it was a matter of engaging guests in bizarre conversations with US & Australian politicians. The guests were engrossed in what he was saying, laughing and thoroughly enjoying the experience.
Caroline Morgan – CMA Events
Keith was so warm and friendly to our guests….. nothing was too much trouble. He was a pure professional and gentleman.
Maureen Moore – Mid Coast Broadcasters
