SCOTT CAPURRO


 "Even in these open-minded days this hugely experienced provocateur would not get a whiff of the mainstream with his set that took in crucifixion, the holocaust and baby murder. The clapping was accompanied by the whirr of Mary Whitehouse spinning in her grave."Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

Scott Capurro is crude, rude and out of line. He’s also hilarious.”Prague Post,"

He had me sweating and he only grew funnier throughout his segment, especially because of his devil-may-care nonchalance."Cape Town Times,"

Capurro still rushes in where most straight comedians would be terrified to tread"The Scotsman, "He is sleeker and wittier than ever before and there can be few comics who make an art of insulting their audience while simultaneously seducing them.A MUST SEE!"The Stage,

 "The most fearless and technically perfect stand up on the circuit."The Guardian
