Scott Thompson (born June 12, 1959) is a Canadian television comedian, best known for his time as a member of the comedy troupe Kids in the Hall.

Thompson was born in North Bay, Ontario, Canada, and grew up in Brampton, Ontario. He is the oldest of the five boys. He attended Brampton Centennial Secondary School and was a student there at the time of the 1975 shooting massacre.[1] He enrolled in York University but in his third year was asked to leave for being 'disruptive'. He joined the comedy troupe The Love Cats and while performing with them met Mark McKinney. In 1984 he became a member of The Kids in the Hall. That troupe's series aired starting 1989 on the CBC in Canada and on HBO in the United States, but moved to CBS for the fourth and fifth seasons.

Openly gay, he became best-known on the show for his monologues as the effeminate Buddy Cole, as well as his appearances as Queen Elizabeth II. He also acted regularly on The Larry Sanders Show and made numerous guest appearances on other television series including Politically Incorrect, The Late Show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Train 48. Scott Thompson was also the host of a reality television program in Canada called "My Fabulous Gay Wedding". Thompson defended Mordecai Richler's novel Cocksure in Canada Reads 2006.

One of Thompson's most recent methods of keeping in touch with his fans is by maintaining a blog called "Ewe," in character as Buddy Cole; the blog went inactive on June 20th 2007. Thompson finally posted a final entry on January 10th, 2008 with a video clip of Buddy Cole explaining "When I first started this was very different for me.
