Looking absolutely fantastic for 51 it’s great to see that age and a new husband hasn’t softened the hilariously crude Scott Capurro. Quite the opposite in fact…hes got a lot to say and the filter is officially off.
For those out there who haven’t experienced (and I choose that word deliberately) his stand-up, Capurro is an out and proud gay comic who loves to push the buttons of the crowd. Gay life and culture is his main comedic weapon but there’s a good chunk on Muslims and women to get the shocked laughs.
Hilarious for the not easily offended, like myself, but even I at moments had to wince. So if I struggled in places you can imagine the two middle aged women sitting across from me. Clearly they were less than impressed with his jokes about women. One looked ready to cry, laughing but ringing her hands and the lady next to me just stared at the ground, tutting, whispering to herself, ‘oh that’s too far’ and let me tell you she did that many times over.
But I guess you have to ask yourself was it too far? It’s hard to be offended because his comments are aimed at all demographics. Jesus, Chinese men, Muslims, 9/11, lesbians, women and all in between, your time is coming so just sit back and wait for it. If you can handle it prepare for some real belly laughs.
