Multi Award Camp /funny 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.

Awards: Leicester Comedy Festival Best New Show (Finalist) Quotes: “Quite simply the future of British stand-up”★★★★★ Brian Donaldson – The List “An immensely self assured and stylish comic.” The Guardian , “A comic glint that sets him apart from his peers.” Chortle ALFIE BROWN He has been performing comedy since the age of 18 and has been good at it since the age of 22. His love of comedy began as a two-year-old when he would gurgle in delight at Alexei Sayle’s face, later his comedy, and he spent his formative years obsessed with George Carlin and Bill Hicks. He has just returned from a comedy tour of Croatia and will soon be on the road with Mumford And Sons on their Gentlemen Of The Road tour. This will be his fourth year at Edinburgh, having previously performed in 2009’s youth package show The Lunchtime Club, in 2010 alongside Ivo Graham and last year with his debut hour ‘The Love You Take’ which received two excellent reviews, one good and one average. He is an alternative comedian obsessed with truth and morality and a hatred of the world’s fixation with fame and profit. . . He has twice appeared on substandard talking-head shows on both BBC2 and BBC3 for money. “His viscerally poetic language is snapped in a masterful application of bathos.” «««««Three Weeks “Puerile and sublime… Symphonic style… Smart and funny, he is one to watch.” ««««The Skinny “An immensely self assured and stylish comic.” The Guardian “A comic glint that sets him apart from his peers.” Chortle “Has the capacity to move… Thoughtful, intriguing and compelling… Boldness and vision, two things many comics never acquire.” London Is Funny Leicester Comedy Festival Awards, Best New Show, Nominee.
