Pleasance, Edinburgh
August, 1995

The San Franciscan queen bitch whose 1994 show Risk-Gay netted him the Perrier award for best newcomer is back with a stand-up show, musing upon affairs of the heart and of the naughty bits. When Capurro works an audience, he works it taking impish enjoyment in picking out straight guys and coming on to them with wicked persistence. He's also enlightening on the gay hotspots of Salt Lake City and Alan Titchmarsh's ability as an interviewer ("He should stick to gardening"). Capurro is a pussycat with claws, but so endearing that you end up wanting to take him home and hide him from your mother.
