His cerebral and intellectual, highbrow comedy has entertained audiences at clubs all over California, most notably Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale; the Comedy Store in Los Angeles; the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley; and the Purple Onion in San Francisco, where he recently headlined with Jabari Davis & Associates.

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”
