Best known for his sharp-witted sense of humor, John Caparulo quickly became a crowd favorite when he began his stand-up career in the comedy clubs of Cleveland and Pittsburg in 1997. After graduating from Kent State University, Caparulo moved to California to pursue his talents as a comedian.
After 4 years as a landscaper by day and Comedy Store doorman by night, Caparulo’s first big break came in 2003 at the “Just For Laughs Festival” in Montreal where he was offered a sitcom deal and began working on the stage full-time. He has since made multiple appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Comedy Central Presents,” and performed alongside Bill Engvall as part of “Blue Collar Comedy: The Next Generation” in 2007. The following year, Caparulo starred in “Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show,” with Jon Favreau and Justin Long. He then went on to host the CMT series, “Mobile Home Disaster,” and saw even more success when his one-hour special, “Meet Cap” premiered to great numbers on Comedy Central. When he’s not touring nationwide, Caparulo can be seen alongside his pal Chelsea Handler as a regular on her hit show, “Chelsea Lately.” Through his success on the show, Caparulo joined “The Comedians of Chelsea Lately” national tour in 2009 and 2010.
In addition to his accomplishments as a comedian, Caparulo is making his mark in the sitcom world as “Brian” on ABC’s “Work It,” and in animation where he voices the role of “Headphone Joe” in Disney’s “Fish Hooks.” He also hosts his own radio show on Sirius/XM Blue Collar Radio, “The Mad Cap Hour.” Cap, as he is known to friends and fans everywhere, has continued to impress audiences and industry at every stop and is truly becoming a household name.
