Scottee grew up around mould, mice and clothes off the market. After a chance meeting with some posh kids, his mum teaching him to talk proper and him successfully persuading her to take him off free school meals Scottee knew he didn't want to be common. Class is a show about what it is to be embarrassed, pretending to be posher than you are and explores why we all get a thrill playing god with green tokens from Waitrose. This is a show for the middle classes.

Broadway World (4/5 stars) 104 days ago

In a city where rising accommodation prices and cost of living push both visiting artists and locals out of its festivals, Scottee's Class could not be more pertinent, and that is exactly why it needs to be presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Early on, Scottee asks his fellow working-class...

Wakey, wakey, Scottee is in the house, “a big fat council Mary’ in a red tracksuit – this is one show you’re definitely not going to sleep through. Exploring that well known social divide, the red wine/Stella line, Scottee is unrelenting, taking us, his largely white middle class audience as...

‘Right guys, if this is going to work, you’re going to have to stop acting like middle class knobheads’ There’s a sheepish half-cheer when Scottee tells the middle class people in the audience to make some noise. No one wants to whoop and holler about how privileged they are. There’s...

The Guardian (3/5 stars) 124 days ago

This is a deliberately uncomfortable watch. In a lecture-style monologue, working-class artist Scottee adopts an abrasive tone as he schools his predominantly middle-class audience, demanding we scrutinise our attitudes towards the postcode lottery of class.
