There's really no type of audience Jeff Capri can't entertain. The veteran comic has been on TV, performed on cruise ships, and even done a set at a nudist colony. "They like to have a good time just like everybody else," Capri says of the last. "I've been mixing it up quite a bit actually, playing theaters, clubs, ships, and plenty of military shows." Indeed, Capri will arrive in Minnesota on the heels of one such overseas sojourn. He's also a favorite in Las Vegas, where he performs frequently. "When did Las Vegas become a place for homeless Disney characters?" he asks. "And badly drawn ones, too." The son of Borsch Belt comedian Dick Capri, Jeff has been making audiences laugh for over 15 years. His father's influence, combined with watching comedians in the '80s while he was growing up, created a unique sense of humor in the young Capri. "It's definitely a hybrid," he says of his style. "I talk about myself, because that's the one thing I know about, and maybe some pop-culture stuff." He'll occasionally take a subtle poke at current events, such as when he's talking about the satellite radio in his car. "It's voice-activated," he says. "If I say 'jazz' it plays jazz, if I say 'rock' it plays rock," he explains. "The other day, a guy in a big red Hummer cut me off and I yelled, 'idiot!' And it switched to Fox News Radio." 18+; 21+ later shows.
