From a very early age, John Caparulo knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up— a grizzly bear. Unfortunately, like most youngsters with such lofty aspirations, his grades just weren’t good enough. So young John joined the navy in search of adventure. But his dreams were dashed once again when he realized it was the Old Navy, and the only adventure they could offer him involved folding cheap khakis for minimum wage.
After working all over the globe for 20+ years, Cap settled down in Las Vegas and performed almost 500 shows during a 2-year residency at Harrah’s. “John Caparulo’s Mad Cap Comedy” ran 5 nights a week from May 10th, 2018, until its unexpected demise on March 15th, 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 shutdowns.
Since Covid made live performances impossible for such an extended period, Cap adapted to the restrictions with “Un-Capped Comedy,” a monthly livestream show on which the live audience picks the topics for the comedian to discuss onstage. And now that live venues appear to be opening back up, Cap is taking Un-Capped Comedy on the road and letting audiences all across the United States choose the direction of every performance.
