Bath Comedy at Bath Fringe Festival

Our last comedy show at this year's Bath Fringe is a corker, and the perfect distraction from the election! Join us for a great laugh tonight as we present:

Scott Capurro's Gay Turnaround

Date: TONIGHT! Thursday 8th June, 2017
Venue: Widcombe Social Club
Doors: 7.30pm for 8.00pm show
Duration: 1hr50 incl interval
Price: £12 / £10 concs


Award winning US comedian, actor and writer Scott Capurro, known for his work on several UK TV programmes, including The Wright Stuff, 8 Out of 10 Cats and The Truth About Gay Animals, comes to Bath Fringe. Strap yourselves in, Bath iconoclasts!

He's 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 also appeared in Mrs Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.

"If you thought comics like Ricky Gervais pushed boundaries then nothing will prepare you for Scott Capurro…He is, in my opinion, the bravest and funniest comedian on the circuit" - GQ Magazine

"...the only reaction is to laugh, partly out of discomfort, partly out of the sheer audacity of it all" ***** Chortle

"Vaingloriously poisonous" ***** The Scotsman

"Comic equation: Larry Grayson x (Lenny Bruce + Chris Rock)" ***** Guardian
