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.
Hello Nightclubers. My name is Kurt Weitzmann. Kurt Weitzmann has been performing comedy for over fifteen years. His (my) act has been seen on Comedy Central, MTV, and on the stages of every San Francisco comedy club ever to come or go. The entity known as Kurt Weitzmann began doing stand up in the late 80s at the infamous Holy City Zoo where such personalities as Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Rob Schneider, and Margaret Cho all honed their craft. In between Stand Up performances Kurt (that’s me) founded numerous Bay Area sketch groups, including Nervous Laughter which was touted as Funnier than any given season of Saturday Night Live in the last ten years by BAM Magazine.
Kurt (me again) also created, edited, and produced the ingenious SF Weakly, a highly celebrated parody of the SF Weekly, for which he was labeled a Comic genius by non other than The SF Weekly.
Kurt has worked with such comedy luminaries as Dave Thomas (SCTV), Patton Oswalt (King of Queens), Dana Gould (The Simpsons), Kate Flannery (The Office), Tom Kenny (Sponge Bob Square Pants) & Eddie Pepitone, to name but a few. Kurt Weitzmanns comedy sketch album Talented is now available on American Dream Records.
Andrew Michaan is a comedian living in Los Angeles. He has performed regularly at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival. He grew up in the woods of Colorado, did some more growing up in the woods of Portland, Oregon, and now lives in the woods of LA, where he hopes to finally complete his journey of self-growth. Andrew produces and co-hosts Good Looks, a monthly live show in Downtown LA.
Originally from San Francisco, Kyle Mizono is a comedian and one of the last international Beanie Baby collectors. Along with being a regular performer in San Francisco and Los Angeles, her festival performances include SXSW, Edinburgh Fringe and Portland’s All Jane No Dick festival. Later this year you can catch her playing a mom in a sketch with Shaq for TruTV’s Upload with Shaquille O’Neal. Currently, Kyle is the Junior Producer of The Super Serious Show. Her comedy was once described as a “breath of fresh air” but she prefers to be described as a “tall glass of water.”
Jay weingarten is a writer/and Performer biased in, Los Angeles (Los Angeles, Calif). Out of all of the comedian websites I have seen, his has the most pop-up ads that have been caught by my ad-blocker.
Chris Duffy is the producer/host of “You’re the Expert,” a live show and podcast where comedians try to guess what leading academic researchers study all day. The Onion A.V. Club called Chris’ creation “a clever panel show” and said that “education and enlightenment are the grand prizes lying behind the velvet curtain, and anyone listening to the episode can win.” Chris is a standup and improviser based in Boston and New York who has performed at colleges and festivals throughout the East Coast (including Harvard, MIT, Brown University, UMass Amherst, William and Mary, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, Boston Comedy Arts Festival, Cambridge Science Festival, Del Close Marathon, and more). Chris is also the Editor-in-Chief of Paperweight, an digital humor magazine featured on Wired.com.
