Stand-up comic, novelist, playwright, and Britain's most notoriously naughty American boy, Scott Capurro, plans to discuss racism as a fetish; religious and lactose intolerance; how to run the world successfully so that nobody stands in the way of his happiness; and deer.
Capurro is no stranger to opening his mouth and telling ithow he sees it. Refreshingly and sometimes breathtakingly frank,this year's show is no exception. But no matter how controversialCapurro is, it's invariably at the expense of the gags.
Still there's plenty of to be shocked about here if you reallywant to be. To fuel the media storm about alleged anti-semitismat the Fringe, for instance, there's plenty of Jewish gags. Capurrorefers to his venue as the Anne Frank attic, and that the Holocaustcard beats all in Top Trumps. But of course he's equally as rudeabout all other cultural and religious groups.
Among the plethora of lazy articles about the fringe has beena magnificently na´ve piece claiming that no one dare makejokes about Islam. Of course, many comedians do, Capurro amongthem. Race, women and his own background of Catholic schoolingand homosexuals also take a hit. How offended can any one personbe when everyone's in the same boat?
His banter is laced with acid, he flirts with the two youngmen on the front row, one straight and one freshly out of thecloset returning to them with excitable regularity; asking themincredibly personal questions and testing him on their fistingtechnique. A few girls come in late and make the mistake of playingup to Capurro to be told 'sit down or I'll kick you in the cunt'.
Though as self-obsessed as ever, Capurro is not adverse tosome self-deprecation and ends on a poignant note regarding hisongoing deadly dance with HIV.
He may be lacking actual jokes, but it's still a joy to seesuch a bitch at work.Reviewed byMarissa Burgess
