Background Information


Born and bred like a fatted calf in Stockton, California, Scott Cherney has worn a lot of hats in his life and times, among them, a cowboy hat as a stunt performer at the Pollardville Ghost Town, a western amusement park that housed sets from the William Wyler film The Big Country. He then moved over to the Palace Showboat Dinner Theater becoming a triple threat actor/writer/director of several melodrama/vaudeville stage productions including Song of the Lone Prairie, The Legend of the Rogue and LaRue's Return (with Edward Thorpe). Cherney was also an award-winning stage actor with roles in Angry Housewives, Sylvia and Move Over, Mrs. Markham. He has appeared in such films as Omega Cop and Under Arrest, as well as co-writing and co-directing Backstage Pass with Tom Amo. Scott was the winner of the one and only Stockton Stand-Up Comedy Competition and has shared the stage with actor/comic Rob Schneider.

Cherney's first book, In the Dark: A Life and Times in a Movie Theater was published in 2003, followed by a collection of original comedy sketches entitled Now THAT'S Funny! His first novel, the road rage thriller Red Asphalt has garnered numerous excellent reviews, followed by the travel memoir entitled Please Hold Thums: A Not-So-Round Trip to South Africa  abd the western comedy romance, Song of the Canyon Kid.

2014 saw a ressurgence in his stage works. Scott wrote an interactive murder mysery script, The Perils of Francois, for Melo O'Drama Theatre in Nashville, TN. His melodrma Song of the Lone Prairie (retitled Song of the Canyon Kid) was produced in the summer of the same year at the Great American Melodrama & Vaudeville in Oceano, CA.In 2015, that same theater company will produce another of his melodramas,La Rue's Return or How's a Bayou?.

"I have to write," Scott Cherney says. "Can't dance."
