An Evening With Scott Capurro


Award winning comedian, actor and writer Scott Capurro (USA), known for his work on several US and UK TV programmes, including The Wright Stuff, 8 Out of 10 Cats and The Truth About Gay Animals, is touring San Francisco, with mace and a tube of chapstick!

He’s described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as “stand-up in the very best possible sense – deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious”.

Scott also appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.

Scott is an action figure (two headed, which is better than one, obviously) and he was banned from Australian TV for eroticizing the Christ figure. Consequently, Scott knows several religious leaders (wink, wink) and Bono. Well, he met Bono once. They’re both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Bono said he was, to impress Scott. Trump eats anything.

“‘If you thought comics like Ricky Gervais pushed boundaries then nothing will prepare you for Scott Capurro. Having won the coveted Perrier award in 1994, the San Franciscan comic has gone from strength to strength while refusing to sell out, making each show more uncompromising than the last. He is, in my opinion, the bravest and funniest comedian on the circuit.’ GQ Magazine

Yet accept the ferocious, corrosive material in the provocative spirit it’s intended, and it is brilliantly, shockingly funny. So far beyond the pale that the only reaction IS to laugh, partly out of discomfort, partly out of the sheer audacity of it all.” Chortle *****
