For more than three years now, comic John “Cap” Caparulo has been releasing about 10 new minutes of comedy every month on his YouTube channel. As might be expected, the videos, sometimes recorded at SoCal comedy clubs and sometimes featuring his wife Jamie and daughter Madden, are significantly less polished than stand-up specials tend to be (Caparulo’s last official special, Come Inside Me, was released in 2013), but the format suits Cap, whose dressed-down doofiness first found a large audience on, oddly, Chelsea Lately and has since found more intuitive fits on CMT’s Mobile Home Disaster and Ron White’s Salute to the Troops.
Offering up laughs with the same nonchalance a similar-looking dude might display repairing your water heater and even getting his family in on the act (he also co-hosts the podcast Domestic Disputes with his wife), former golf-course groundskeeper Caparulo is the comedic equivalent of the locally owned corner hardware store — except that he can currently still be seen outside of sitcoms. $20, 8pm & 10:15pm Fri, Jun. 9 & Sat, Jun. 10, 7pm Sun, Jun. 11, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com.
