Portrait of Anna Piper Scott

Anna Piper Scott

Anna Piper Scott is a Perth-born, Melbourne-based stand-up comedian with over 10 years of experience across Australia. She’s a trans woman of remarkable wit and social insight, a skilled writer and bold performer. She’s a guaranteed highlight of every festival she’s a part of, whether hosting comedy line-ups, cabaret shows and game shows, or performing solo.

Anna is best known for her solo show Queer & Present Danger, which she performed at the Melbourne Fringe 2019, to rave reviews and sold out crowds, and for which she earned a nomination for Best Comedy. At the Fringe at the Edge of the World 2020 in Hobart, Anna performed to full houses, got nominated for Best Comedy and Best Solo and won Best of the Fest. Before all of that, Anna was half of the Golden Gibbo nominated and critically acclaimed MICF smash-hit show Almost Lesbians, which she created with my comedy partner Sophie Joske.

Anna was featured in Joanne Brookfield’s book No Apologies with the likes of Wendy Harmer, Denise Scott, Geraldine Hickey, Felicity Ward and Fiona O’Loughlin, and she’s also shared the stage with comedy greats such as Wil Anderson, Judith Lucy and Cal Wilson.
