Scott Fitzgerald fancies himself as a bit of a gangster. Exposed in the tabloids, the former law student served time (four and a half months in an open prison) for credit card fraud, and he wants to tell you all about it.
Setting us straight on our perception of ‘inside’, the crim-turned-window cleaner weaves a compelling account of an institution most will never see. He didn’t succeed as a criminal and my guess is he won’t as a comedian, but he’s an enormously likable man, and while some of his black and white prison politics are a bit hard to swallow, his story is an engaging one.
