★★★★ Three Weeks UK
A very special guest appearance by one of the hardest hitting comedians in the world, The Mega Award winning comedian Scott Capurro (USA), as seen on UK TV programmes, The Wright Stuff, 8 Out of 10 Cats and The Truth About Gay Animals, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Star Wars: Phantom Menace.
Scott is a Perrier award winner, one of the biggest awards in Comedy one can achieve (winners include, Steve Coogan, Lee Evans, Dylan Moran, Rich Hall, Daniel Kitson, Demetri Martin, and many other of brilliance)
He was banned a popular Aussie late night TV show in the 00’s . Which should be enough to come and see this show!
“‘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 August
‘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 ★★★★★
‘Vaingloriously poisonous’ Scotsman ★★★★★
‘Comic equation: Larry Grayson x (Lenny Bruce + Chris Rock)’ Guardian ★★★★★
Scott has written for several newspapers, including The Guardian, The London Times and the Scotsman; and for various magazines, like The Index on Censorship, which isn’t half as stuffy as it sounds. Kidding. It actually is. AND he currently has a monthly column in Gay Times, a British glossy that hired him because he’s – you guessed it – ghettoized.
His book, Fowl Play, a comedy novel about murder and date rape, received good reviews and it is out of print. Currently, he’s working on a second novel about the making of a Broadway musical, entitled Runt. And there’s a third novel, Loaded, based on his play about his correspondence with killer Erik Menendez, which the English press called ‘sick and dangerous’.
And Katie Burch National Runner up in JJJ RAW 2014 – Katie Burch is set to be one of Australia’s most popular comedians. Her unique comic voice has been delighting critics across the country.
