Every Thursday, audiences fill Lost Weekend Video’s famous CineCave comedy den, for a show that provides club-level talent without irritating drink minimums or filler comics.

This weeks guests:
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.
Geek comedian. Relentlessly honest. Created interactive performance by mashing up theatre, stand-up and the Net.
She has also appeared in: npr, boingboing.net, TechTV, Air America, WIRED, Yahoo Financevision, The Wall Street Journal, The Toronto Globe and Mail, The San Jose Mercury News, WHERE Magazine, shift TV, Fortune.com, thestreet.com, The San Francisco Chronicle, Curve, Backstage Pass, the Austin Chronicle and CBC Radio.
Vince Mancini is a writer and comedian living in San Francisco, and the founding editor of FilmDrunk. You can find more of his work on FilmDrunk, the Uproxx network, and all over his mom’s refrigerator.
