Mixed result for masterclass

Scott Capurro's Position, Elmwood Hall

Scott Capurro's position on Saturday night wasn't so much a stand-up comedy gig as a live TV-style chat show.

The outspoken comedian was joined by fellow comic David Mills and they proceeded to interview guests Andrew Boyle and Gemma Garrett (Gerry Anderson and Ian Paisley Jnr had apparently dropped out).

Highlight, though was the interview with Colin Murray. What started out as a straight interview morphed into a masterclass on how to win a room. This was Capurro's second time at the festival and one can only hope the lukewarm reception won't put him off returning.

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
