Stand-up comedian Scott Capurro is not very nice. He's indiscriminately mean to everyone -- if you don't like a man onstage mocking you and your kind, skip it. Capurro's awfully smart, though, and funny. A surprising egalitarianism causes him to contradict himself from time to time: Although he doesn't hesitate to make racist jokes, he also points out, for example, that "So much rap is violent misogyny cradling homophobia. But then so is everyone's favorite musical, Oklahoma." Reviewers aren't very nice to him, in return -- in print, he's been called everything from "Wicked Witch of the West Coast" to "little bitch." At "Scott Capurro's Dirty Gift," he shows off his filthy mouth and sparkling wit.
