    A native Texan, Scott is a favorite on CMT Countdown on Country Music Television and had his own half-hour special on Comedy Central Presents. He’s appeared on Premium Blend, NBC's Last Comic Standing, CBS's The Late Late Show and ABC’s Good Morning America.
    2007 marks the 18th year of standup comedy for Scott. He headlines at clubs and colleges across the country and is a favorite on XM radio. He continues to be in demand at Harrah's in Las Vegas, performing to sold-out crowds up to five times a year, and Comedy Central lists him as one of the top 100 comics of all time.

    Cast of Laughing Matters...The Men

    Just watched a comic on HBO named Scott Kennedy, who said he has been to Iraq to perform for the troops 35 times and went to Afghanistan 9 times. He said he has been shot, but being from Texas, nothing would keep him from going back.

    He said the troops are the best audiences he has ever had. He said they have a hard time believing he's gay because he looks like a big redneck. He said he played football in high school and the coach caught him in the shower and told him to stop and he said, "It's mine and I'll wash it as fast as I want".

    He said that he always does the full gay show, and he know the troops appreciate it, some more than others. He said Marines have told him they are "family".

    I thought he was far more interesting than his "routine", especially when he talked about supporting the troops. I think too many Americans forget they are still out there.

    Funny that the only making any sort of anything out of his gayness is himself, well and the OP.

    When I was in Afghanistan, all the celebrities basically did the Kandahar/Bagram circuit (to include Limbaugh) - i.e. the "safe circuit".

    With the exception of one:

    Vince Vaughn made it out to Salerno, a forward FOB and pinned a soldiers stripes on him when he got promoted to Sergent.

    That's pretty cool.

    Good for Vince, but he's still a dick.

    Nah, he just comes across as a dick all the things I've read and heard about him. Doesn't mean he can't do some good things though.

    Look at Paris Hilton for example, total waste of oxygen, BUT she has recently done one good thing, she is working to provide every soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan with an IPOD full of tunes, that's pretty cool, but she's still a dumb shit.

    I've never heard of a FOB in the rear....is that part of the Obama exit strategy now?? Building bases along our retreat routes?

    I suppose that's a little redundant. "Forward Forward Operating Base". Anyways, I meant the FOBs that were on the border.

    Most of the celebrities didn't go out to them. But Vaughn did.

    A bunch of WWE wrestlers came to my base in Kirkuk when we were getting mortared about 3 times a day.
