"I don't give a shit about those who don't like my work," he snaps. "I'm never going to win them over anyway, so why bother? My work is for a discerning audience who don't have knee-jerk responses."

In 1994, he was awarded the Perrier Award for best newcomer, at the Edinburgh Festival.
In 1999, he played the voice of Beed Annodue along with actor, comedian, and friend Greg Proops in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
In 2001, Capurro appeared on Australian show Rove Live and shocked the host, Rove McManus, with an explicit routine. His material was no more bawdy than usual. Rove apologized immediately after the performance.
In 2002, he presented a light-hearted documentary on the UK's Channel 4 called The Truth About Gay Animals which examined the subject of homosexuality in animals. Capurro visited various collections of captive animals to observe animals which had been reported to exhibit homosexual behaviour, and interviewed the staff about this. The show also included an interview with anti-gay rights campaigner Janet Young, Baroness Young, where Capurro showed Young a video of a variety of male-male intercourse and female-female mating attempts in various animal species, and then asked her to comment on whether this influenced her views about its "unnaturalness".
Capurro has been a frequent guest on the Sarah & Vinnie's Morning Show of Radio Alice 97.3FM KLLC San Francisco. He is also a regular panelist on the topical discussion series The Wright Stuff, hosted by his friend Matthew Wright.
Capurro is managed by comedy agency The Comedy Bar.
From May to June 2008, he acted the role of Sammy in Joe DiPietro's play Fucking Men in London, England.
He has a husband named Edson.
