two more nights with the outrageous
Sunday 10 & Monday 11 February 2002
What with a 13 years old boy sitting in the front row (ok going on 14 & with his dad !) on sunday plus a couple of pentecostals, the tongues Scott was talking in and about were slightly salty. Then it was Heather & Jerome's turn on monday along with the massed ranks of Alstomatos and some Dutch Anne frank fans too. They were a wild couple of nights. Some of it may well have been illegal but the chocolate karma sutra was a sweet way to end it all.
Remember as the man said "candy doesn't make people gay".
But Scott does make them laugh.
"A comic giant in the making."
"Scott Capurro is the margherita of the comedy world - delicious, sharp and acid."
"A great show."
The Age, Melbourne
"Personable, tart stand-up...challenging... intriguing"
San Francisco Examiner
"Naughty...ironic...the most amusing...he never quits!"
San Francisco Chronicle
"Stand-up in the very best possible sense - deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious."

Fowl Play in Gay Paris
Scott hails from San Francisco and is the hottest gay stand-up comedian on the comedy cicuit. Not a man to mince his words he dishes up a winning mixture of high camp, low living, raw lust and catty banter. Winner of 1994's Perrier Best Newcomer and Spirit of the Fringe Awards his 1999 Edinburgh show "Fowl Play" described as "erect comedy" was appropriately posted as "standing room only".
