A national headlining comedian and world champion juggler, Scott Burton has been at the forefront of humor in health care for 20 years. With it never occurring to him that he “shouldn’t,” Scott was one of the first to use clean, empowering humor as a way to tell his cancer story.
Audiences have been laughing ever since.
He’s performed with Leno and Seinfeld, written for primetime TV, and now speaks internationally with a disarming, genuinely funny keynote that calls for humanity, communication and expression of self – on both sides of the stethoscope.
Along with being a Survivor favorite, Scott’s CME/CEU credited talk has brought laughter and a key perspective to ONS Congress, ASCO, tumor boards, grand rounds, and scores of medical symposia throughout the world.
His book, A Life in the Balance, remains one of the most unique (and humorous) takes on the personal cancer experience.
