Last New Years Eve Scott was forced out of his performance career by crippling arthritis. Now in a wheel chair he is attempted to do an annual show for his fans. He chose to do it with one of his best friends
Scott Hansen is the unprecedented, 5-time winner of the Minnesota Comedian of the Year award. This is not an easy accomplishment in a state that is the home of comic stars Louie Anderson, Dave Mordal, Tom Arnold and Al Franken!
The award winning comedian has made millions laugh with successful national TV appearances on HBO, Showtime, A&E and E!. Scott has developed and created two pilots and a series for Comedy Central including " Access America" which starred Fred Willard, Digest America and "Seriously Weird Magazine", which starred Joel Hodgson (Mystery Science Theatre 3000).
Creatively, Scott has written comedy material that has been performed on the "Tonight Show" or "David Letterman" by Jay Leno, Louie Anderson and Roseanne Barr. As an actor Scott starred in the short thriller "Warped " which was directed by Roger Nygaard ( "Trekkies", "Mind of the Married Man" ) which won the Houston International Film Festival and in the feature film "Crossing the Bridge directed by Mike Binder ( The Upside of Anger)
When I was a kid I wanted to be a sumo wrestler. But as I grew up I realized no m atter how hard I tried or how much I ate, I'd never be Japanese.
Pete Borchers is an up-and-coming comic from the not-so-mean streets of suburban West Bloomington in Minnesota. He is your average Minnesota guy. He is a frustrated Vikings fan and gets angry when people ask him to go to the cabin before it is warm.
His observational style is sometimes smart and sometimes stupid. But it will always make you laugh and will keep you laughing at everything in between. Pete has performed all across Minnesota and Wisconsin as part the Minnesota Numb Nuts and was the winner of both the Clean Comedy Contest and the Laff with Louie contest. Pete recently made his television standup debut as a special guest of Louie Anderson on Twin Cities Live.
Pete is newly married, has a new mortgage bigger than Brett Favres ego and recently became a father.
He needs a laugh as much as his audience
Pete credits his sense of humor to his ADD and a paralyzing fear of being normal. The birth of his first son is a true test of his commitment to laziness and irresponsibility.
"I had my first childa boyat the end of May. God bless my wife for enduring the unspeakable-ness of childbirth. I don't think I could have done it without her.
Petes current maturity level and gag reflex, made him woefully ill-prepared for the poop-covered minefield that became his life. Pete was fearful of becoming a dad. People told that him he will be a great dad but he worries how they can base that on a guy who has forgotten to take the money at an ATM.
Everyone keeps telling me that my life is going to change, which is both true and not particularly helpful. Knowing that I sometimes have a hard time keeping myself alive, I'm just hoping my son and I can both make it through the baby years together.
Pete promises to adapt and flow with the trials of his life. He hopes that one day he can replicate the fond memory of his own childhood and that one day he can look his own son in the eyes and tell him, Go mow my lawn.
