PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION




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. Cap wouldn’t let such minor disappointments sway him from finding a fulfilling career path though, and he decided to open his own karate dojo to teach deaf and blind kids how to defend themselves. It took about 6 years before anyone figured out that John didn’t know karate. The blind students had no idea what they were being taught had been derived mainly from Jackie Chan movies and Hong Kong Phooey or that Cap’s dojo was actually in his front yard. None of the deaf kids were able to win a fight against John, and naturally neither were any of their mothers. But after many of them watched Cap break his foot attempting to chop a board in half, the writing was on the wall, even in Braille. So Cap closed his front yard dojo forever and left town. Since then, he’s pursued a relatively successful career in comedy.


Cap’s first TV appearance was a spot on “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.” From there he was invited to the 2003 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Cap was one of the comedians documented on Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Tour. John Caparulo was also featured on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Next Generation, several appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, appeared over 150 times as a panelist on Chelsea Handler’s popular E! show, “Chelsea Lately,” during its 7-year run. He also appeared as part of Ron White's Salute To The Troops on CMT, a network on which he became well-known as the host of the surprisingly hilarious show Mobile Home Disaster. And he played the part of Brian on the short-lived ABC sitcom “Work It” (more commonly referred to as Sh It). In 2018, he showcased his love for Tom Brady on Showtime’s Unsportsmanlike Comedy with Rob Gronkowski.










Cap has two comedy specials / albums: “John Caparulo: Meet Cap,” which premiered on Comedy Central in 2008 and “John Caparulo: Come Inside Me,” which launched on Netflix in 2013. In February 2014, Cap began releasing Caplets, a brand-new set of comedy every 30 days that were distributed on Hulu, JohnCaparulo.com, and YouTube.com/ JohnCaparuloComedy.


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 back on the road killing crowds with his sharp wit, unique delivery, and brilliant affinity for cuss words.
