Biography

After a one and a half year battle with cancer, Scott Burton knows the tools needed for survivorship.

Through cancer, like all great trials in life, one can remain aware of one’s potential. A person may still find cause to celebrate and recognize individual integrity, allowing that hope and opportunity are always present. Communication getting in touch with embracing and expressing passion plus allowing for humor are keys to keeping each of us, regardless of circumstance, focused, energized, and vital throughout adverse situations.

While some of our battles are life threatening and some are not, we are all survivors. In some way, each of us is tested daily. And what makes us true survivors is not just weathering through our battles, but doing so with our spirits intact. It is about keeping the mind and body healthy. Scott Burton an award-winning comic, champion juggler, cancer survivor and author brings that message to corporate audiences nationwide.

With refreshing honesty, experienced stand-up and world-class juggling, Scott Burton breaks convention by crafting a comedy routine—faced with joy and passion—of his personal battle with cancer. A veteran of hundreds of shows since his diagnosis, Scott Burton erases the mystique and fear of cancer—the fear of any struggle. His audience soon sees that it is not simply a story about cancer. It is, instead, the story of life. And that is a story we can all embrace.

Scott Burton believes the gift of laughter, passion and communication help each of us see our lives as vital during hard times. “I felt, and still do, each moment laughing is a moment you are—if only for a second—in love with life.” A comedy club headliner, who has worked with Jay Leno and Louie Anderson as well as writing for prime-time television, Scott Burton’s clean comedy and world-class juggling sends a positive message to business professionals who want to survive and thrive in the workplace.

Scott Burton has written a book titled, A Life in the Balance, which looks at survivorship through the eyes of a stand-up comic. It is a rare book that keeps you laughing even as it remains an honest and true tale of the cancer experience.

When Scott Burton tells his story nobody cries. They laugh like they never thought they would. Cynthia Bachmann, VP of engineering at Kohler said, "I''ve heard nothing but rave reviews!" and President of Advantek, Inc., Tim Cowen, simply said, "WOW!"
