GET UPDATES FROM Scott Capurro
 
San Franciscan actor/comedian Scott Capurro has become one of the most popular faces on the UK comedy circuit. At his first appearance in the UK, the 1994 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Scott hit the ground stumbling by winning both the PERRIER BEST NEWCOMER for his show ‘RiskGay’, along with the SPIRIT OF THE FRINGE award. ‘Scott Capurro’s
Love and Affection Tour’, his 1995 Edinburgh show, was then nominated for the main PERRIER AWARD.

Since then, Scott has extensively toured the US, Australia, South Africa,
Europe and Canada, having performed several times at the JUST FOR
LAUGH’S FESTIVAL in Montreal, and comedy festivals in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Cape Town, Prague, Manchester, Kilkenny, Los Angeles, New York City and Stoke-on-Trent. He’s successfully played his hour to sold-out audiences at 14 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, including his smash hit show ‘Scott Capurro Goes Deeper’ in 2008, which also toured the UK extensively; and ‘Who Are The Jocks?’, which swooped up 5 star reviews and was later featured on the BBC1 TV programme ‘Imagine’.

Other live UK performances include the Hay Festival in 2007, which
received menacing glares from cardigan wearers.
His first novel, Fowl Play, was published in September of 2000 and
garnered wonderful reviews. Since then he’s been ignored by proper literary houses whilst writing for several newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Times, The Telegraph, Index on Censorship, The Age, Time Out Magazine, Attitude Magazine, Gay Times and the San Francisco Chronicle.

My Left Lung

The A&E doctor poked her head through a beige curtain into the cubicle and announced, "Your blood is infected." She raised her right eyebrow. "Have you boys had an HIV test recently?"

My husband, standing behind me, concerned and weepy, said, "I did. In May."

"Why?" I could barely form...

Aids 1: Guardian 0

(4) Comments | Posted 30 April 2013 | (00:00)

In the Guardian's most recent pompous coverage of anything marginal, I stumbled upon a tirade written by Glenn Greenwald chastising the San Francisco Gay Pride Committee for de-nominating Bradley Manning as a Grand Marshall for this year's parade in June. If you don't know who Bradley Manning is,...

Gay Meat and Guns

At an Xmas party last week, Wolfgang, a large German personal trainer living in Shoreditch, informed me that to increase my muscle mass I'd have to eat a half-pound of meat per day.

I'd seen him from across the guacamole, whilst I singularly shoved in handfuls of tortilla chips...

Defending Jimmy Savile

(177) Comments | Posted 16 December 2012 | (23:00)

Firstly, might I remind everyone his last name is spelled with one 'L', not two? I've seen Jimmy's surname misspelled in print several times, and that's an abuse glorious bookworms, like those who peruse the pages of The Huffington Post UK, should not tolerate.

Nor should the reader tolerate child...

Ladies Night
All I Said... Part 2

Not too long ago, in the cellar of a Soho gay club, when I diplomatically suggested to a Chinese-American woman that her driving might suffer because of a lack of periphery, a lesbian chucked ice at my temple. In self-defense, I...

All I Said Was... Part 1

Many years ago, when I was a legitimate actor in San Francisco, I got the idea that audiences weren't listening. Maybe it was the tired tourist trade for which I was performing; or perhaps I was, at the tender age of 28, disillusioned, but...

I Wanna Tap That

(5) Comments | Posted 2 December 2012 | (23:00)

Why is the media so anxious about phone tapping? I would love if someone as powerful as Rupert Murdoch gave a shit about what I say. I wouldn't mind having his wife as a bodyguard too, that bitch can kick, but obviously she's busy changing Rupert's diapers and grinding infant...

Pink Slip the Senate

(1) Comments | Posted 13 November 2012 | (23:00)

Wonder Woman is more excited than when she bought her first shipment of steroids on line, because there's now lots of lesbians in the senate! Or just one? Well, one OUT lesbian is more than enough, right Hillary? Baby steps, or to put it senatorially, legislative processes are complicated. Fairness...

If Romney Wins, I'm Satan, If Obama Wins, I'm Modern

I'm an American citizen living in London, and I considered ignoring my absentee ballot for the US Presidency race because I'm married to a Brazilian man. No matter who wins the presidential election today, my husband won't be able to meet my family in California.

Gay marriage is illegal there....
