"enthralling... electric ... deliciously catty" (Guardian)

"breathtaking... incandescently witty" (Scotsman)

Camp and outrageous, provocative and controversial, catty and hysterical, Scott Capurro is a breath of fresh air in the increasingly samey and stale world of stand-up.

Constantly operating on the boundaries of good taste ­ and often straying some way over the line ­ Scott is a challenging comedian in the best sense of the word. He is so comfortable dealing with topics that other comics would never touch that he forces audiences to ask themselves why they should feel so uncomfortable about some of his subject matter. Yet despite this approach ­ or perhaps even because of it ­ Scott has established himself as one of the most popular faces in the UK comedy circuit.

Since his award-winning solo debut at the 1994 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Capurro has become a regular Fringe favourite. Constantly seeking to challenge himself as well as his audience, he has since returned with several solo Fringe shows and experimented with a variety of forms and styles, including his dark 1998 one-man play, Brian Souffle, and his infamous 2001 collaboration with John Cardone, Fucking Our Fathers.

Following his Fringe successes, Scott has taken his shows to the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, the Sydney Mardi Gras and has toured throughout Australia and the UK. Treading new ground yet again, Scott published his first novel, Fowl Play in September 1999, following his highly successful Edinburgh show of the same name.

Scott is a veteran of our TV screens - he has appeared on such shows as BBC1's The Stand-Up Show, hosted Is That It? for MAI United, and captained a team on the Channel 4 quiz The Staying In Show. A diverse performer, Scott's talents were also incorporated into Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace!

Scott began performing comedy in his home town of San Francisco, where a gay stand-up comedy scene has emerged. In America, Scott is a comic in the vanguard of the currently hip gay comedy pack which includes Lea de Laria, Mark Davis and Marga Gomez. Capurro has taken his latest show, Riskgay to Edinburgh and it’s proving a great success.

He deals with hecklers on a shoot first, camp retort later basis, and anyone foolish enough to come back for more is duly plastered against the back wall. Scott blends acerbic, personal stand-up with intimate anecdotes covering his first gay experiences, picaresque encounters in San Francisco and life as a gay comedian.

“Capurro’s larger than life bouncy castle personality and engaging line in audience confrontation… render his material endlessly fresh”
Capital Gay

“Personable, tart stand-up… challenging… intriguing”
The San Francisco Examiner

“Elegant… mesmerized the house… I wanted him to go on forever… he has heart”
Kate Bornstein, The Bay Area Reporter

“His acting skills and candour take this show beyond just ringing the changes on stand-up… Seemingly without effort, he not only connects with the audience but makes friends with everyone in the cabaret bar. A Fringe giant in the making.”
The Independent
