Edinburgh Preview Double Bill:
Sara Barron & Scott Capurro
Scott Capurro Explodes
“Gay bars are great for straight women. But the primitive, predatory gay scene – you know, the good one – is now online, and I’m too fragile to lie about my age. If I told men I was 29, which all men are on Grindr, they’d think I was a burn victim.”
Scott Capurro has wound up married and at Waitrose on a Friday night, wondering “chicken” or “fish”, and that statement is without euphemism. How the fuck did this happen?

Sara Barron, Best Newcomer Nominee at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and in the Chortle Awards 2019, is one of the most hotly tipped comics working in the UK.
Sara’s blistering 5-star show ‘Enemies Closer’ was among the best-reviewed shows of the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe, and played to capacity crowds. As well as an extraordinary run at the Fringe, Sara has sold out two runs at the Soho Theatre with her highly-acclaimed debut show ‘For Worse’, curated her own hugely popular regular nights at 2Northdown and Angel Comedy, and has continued to thrill audiences up and down the country with her stand-up.
Sara’s credits include Live at the Apollo (BBC) , Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC), Dave Gorman: Terms and Conditions Apply (Dave), Hypothetical (Dave) and Roast Battle (Comedy Central)
