Scott Capurro was reared in Daly City, California; at age 3, he swam the English Channel. Since 1993, he’s avoided AIDS by telling unsavory jokes in every English speaking country. Scott is trusting and thus surrounded by duplicity, yet he continues challenging himself, because he’s physically challenged and emotionally unstable.
Described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as “stand-up in the very best possible sense – deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious”
Scott has appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.
Scott knows David Cameron (wink, wink) and Nelson Mandela. Well, he’s met Nelson once. They’re both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Nelson said he was, to impress Scott. Cameron eats anything.
Clare O’Kane is an actress and comedian from San Jose, California. Clare has performed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, as well as a few comedy festivals with fun, fake-sounding names like the Shits and Giggles Comedy Festival and the Too Much Funstival. She has been described as “sarcastic” and “half-Asian”. When she’s not sneezing or whatever, Clare travels around the country to perform stand-up comedy and “seize the day”. Clare hopes to get that tattooed on her for free someday. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California with a guy and a cat.
A former attorney, she uses her hard earned critical thinking skills to talk about such complex topics as food, sex and things she sees on Muni. Mostly observational, increasingly self revelatory, Stefani’s comedy will get you laughing and keep you thinking.
She is available for all sorts of gigs – her comedy lends itself to everything from the dark drunk environment of the club and bar scene – to day time corporate and community events.
Josh Androsky quit high school early to pursue his love of television. By 20 he was a full time writer. He wrote/produced FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live, Reality Remix, Current TV’s SuperNews, and other shitty shows he hopes you never research. At 23, Josh felt trapped by TV. Then he did his first open mic. Free from network notes from Business Majors, Josh thrived in the alternative comedy scene. He runs comedy-freakout HAMCLOWN (LA Times), started a show on the steps of City Hall (LA Weekly), and went viral eating shrooms and getting weird on The Price is Right.
James Fritz’s first album, “Deflated,” debuted at #1 on iTunes comedy in November 2010. He appeared in the Just For Laughs festival the past 3 years (’09, ’10, ’11) and has opened for such diverse performers as Doug Stanhope, Jamie Kilstein, and Maz Jobrani. He was voted the #1 Stand-up Comedian in Chicago in the Chicago Reader. Comedy.com called him one of the top 5 stand-up comedians in Chicago. His new podcast, “You Could Be Dead,” began this fall.
