Comedian John Caparulo’s sharp wit, unique delivery, and brilliant affinity for cuss words made him a crowd favorite right off the bat. Now, after support from comedy greats like Jay Leno, Chelsea Handler, and Vince Vaughn, John’s getting a shot at becoming a true household name.
John began his stand-up career in the comedy clubs of Cleveland and Pittsburgh in 1997. After graduating from Kent State University, he left behind a lucrative career patching potholes to take his talent to the left coast. There, he spent the next four years working the door at the world famous Comedy Store by night and cutting grass at a local golf course by day.
Cap’s first big break came at the 2003 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he impressed the industry observers enough to offer him a sitcom deal. It was then he was able to officially trade in his weed whacker for a microphone full-time. John is now applying his blue-collar work ethic to the stage, where he performs nearly 365 nights a year. He shares, “I wanted to be a comedian because it’s the best way to tell the world how you really feel. I also figured it was the only way I was ever going to be laid.” In retrospect though, he states, “Now I wish I had learned how to play guitar.”
John has made multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, done a half-hour Comedy Central Presents and performed as part of Blue Collar Comedy: The Next Generation in 2007 with Bill Engvall. The problem now is that John is often compared to Larry the Cable Guy. He shares, “I love all my blue-collar comedy fans because I can relate to them, and that's pretty cool. But the next jackass who yells ‘Git 'er dun’ at me is gonna git 'er throat punched!”
In 2008, John’s first feature film, Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show (also starring Jon Favreau and Justin Long), was released by New Line. The comedy documentary followed Vince and 4 stand-up comics as they toured the country. Moving forward, John went on to host the CMT series Mobile Home Disaster and his one-hour special Meet Cap premiered to great numbers on Comedy Central and Warner Bros. just released his CD/DVD.
Most currently in addition to touring nationwide, John can be seen alongside his pal Chelsea Handler as a regular on her E! hit show Chelsea Lately. John shares, “It's like hanging out at my buddy's house and getting a check for it! It really is the most fun I've had since I got into comedy. I've known Chelsea since we were both doing 6-minute spots in the attic at The Comedy Store. I never thought she really liked me. Come to think of it... I'm still not sure.” Now, through his success on the show, John will be hitting the road in 2010 with The Comedians of Chelsea Latelynational tour.
In addition to his work as a comedian, John, to many known as Cap, is starting to make his mark in animation. He will voice the role of “Headphone Joe” in the upcoming Disney Channel series Fish Hooks. He’s also got supporting roles in two upcoming 20th Century Fox features, Marmadukeand Rio.
He recently became the spokesperson for Edge Shave Gel for their nationwide “Anti-Irritation” campaign. Fitting.
John also hosts his own radio show, The Mad Cap Hour on Sirius/XM Blue Collar Radio.
On the TV front he was cast in the role of “Brian,” on the ABC ½ hour pilot, Work It.
The future has never looked brighter for this talented, young comedian who has always been proud that his fans come from all different walks of life. John believes that honesty is universal and the essence of comedy is being able to tell the world how you really feel in a funny way. Amen to that.
