Camp /funny Award -winning SCOTT CAPURRO "Even in these open-minded days this hugely experienced provocateur would not get a whiff of the mainstream with his set that took in crucifixion, the holocaust and baby murder. The clapping was accompanied by the whirr of Mary Whitehouse spinning in her grave."Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard Scott Capurro is crude, rude and out of line. He’s also hilarious.”Prague Post," He had me sweating and he only grew funnier throughout his segment, especially because of his devil-may-care nonchalance."Cape Town Times," Capurro still rushes in where most straight comedians would be terrified to tread"The Scotsman, "He is sleeker and wittier than ever before and there can be few comics who make an art of insulting their audience while simultaneously seducing them.A MUST SEE!"The Stage, "The most fearless and technically perfect stand up on the circuit."The Guardian

bonkers stand up from New York LEWIS SCHAFFER WHAT THE PRESS SAY:“Electrifying… a bizarre cross between performance art, a swingers’ part and a papal blessing. Five Stars.”Claire Smith, The Scotsman“Schaffer is disconcertingly terrific. He is compelling, unique and most of all unpredictable.”Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard “An hour with Lewis Schaffer is an hilarious, cathartic, exhilaratingly appalling experience.”Kate Copstick, ITV & The Scotsman “A fixture on the Soho comedy scene. Who better to give it to us straight than this New Yoiker?”The Independent “His rapid-fire delivery takes a heavily ironic pop… everything is fair game. The darker and drier, the better.”The Guardian “Schaffer’s dry, acerbic style is exhilarating to watch. It’s a bloody good laugh and unlike anything else on the comedy circuit. Go see Lewis Schaffer.”Time Out London “Lewis Schaffer has a unique style – he can insult you and love you in the same sentence.”Time Out New York “Almost every laugh he gives us he tops with another, bigger laugh. I would pay to see Lewis Schaffer.”The Scotsman “Well worth catching.”The New York Post “He is a skilled, masterful and above all, eye-wateringly funny guy.
