I took my first, scary steps away from the world of Panto in 2013 to debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in the sold out production of “Kiss Me, Honey, Honey!” with Andy Gray which won a Scotsman Fringe First and went on to tour across Scotland then returned to the Fringe in 2014 for a limited run of 6 nights.
Andy and I teamed up again at the Fringe in 2015 in the critically acclaimed play “Willie and Sebastian” which was a dark comedy written by Ian Pattison and based on the real life characters Willie Donaldson and Sebastian Horsley.
2016 saw me team up with Allan Stewart, Andy Gray in a brand new play “Canned Laughter”. It toured Kirkcaldy, Glasgow and Aberdeen before playing a full week at The King’s Theatre, Edinburgh in March and April.
I then debuted my one man show “Tales From Behind The Mic” at the Fringe and am delighted to say the whole run of 24 shows sold out. I toured it over Spring 2017 and had a ball!
In 2017 Andy and I were back at the Fringe in a new play by Phillip Differ “Double Feature” which we toured in Spring 2018. My most recent role was the character of Captain Freeman, who featured in Episodes 1 & 2 of Outlander Season 4.
The short trailers below provide a flavour of the range of roles that I’ve had the pleasure of playing in various stage productions:

“Stott is absent from much of the comedy, instead portraying a spectral, downbeat figure that is extremely touching and demonstrates what an effective stage performer he has become.”
– Canned Laughter Review; All Edinburgh Theatre
“It would have been nice to see more of Grant Stott, whose two appearances give the whole production a lift.”
– Return to the Forbidden Planet; Barry Gordon, Evening News
