Divine intervention can come in many forms. Comedian Scott Dunn hit upon a career-changing concept one Easter morning while daydreaming in church. He felt guilty for not paying attention and thought, “If they made this more entertaining, people would learn more.” Scott went on to write the bit about the Last Supper being a Friar’s Club Roast of Jesus.
That bit became a classic on the Bob and Tom syndicated radio program and Scott soon followed it up with the “Founding Father’s Roast of George Washington,” “The First Thanksgiving,” and “Abraham Lincoln’s Wake.” Scott’s appearances became so popular he now appears on the program every Monday to give a joke filled history lesson and quiz.
Scott also appears most weeks on Bob and Tom’s television program on WGN America. He has also appeared on CMT, Comedy Central and NBC. In 2008 Scott became a Warner Brothers recording artist. His first comedy album is entitled “Absolutely Historical.” And most recently, Scott performed for the Governor’s inauguration in Indiana.
When not performing, Scott is also a prolific writer. His television credits include “Foxworthy’s Big Night Out,” “CMT’s Comedy Stage,” “The Larry the Cable Guy Christmas Special” and the “CMT Music awards.” He has also published two novels and is a consultant for “Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader.”
And most importantly, Scott is a husband and father of two.
