John Caparulo (born September 22, 1975) is an American stand-up comedian. He is perhaps best known for his appearances on the late night E! talk show, Chelsea Lately. Caparulo grew up primarily in a region of Ohio near the Pennsylvania and West Virginia borders. Caparulo attended East Liverpool High School, graduating in 1993. After graduating from Kent State, where he was a member of Phi Sigma Pi, he started his stand-up career in night clubs in Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh in 1997. He then spent several years working as a doorman at the Comedy Store in Hollywood, California and as a groundskeeper at a local golf course. Caparulo, known to many as "Cap," got his first big breaks appearing at the 2003 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was offered a sitcom, and on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. He has since appeared on The Tonight Show, was featured on Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Next Generation hosted by Bill Engvall, and was one of the comedians documented on Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Tour. He hosted Mobile Home Disaster on CMT, and played the part of 'Brian' on the short-lived ABC sitcom "Work It." He also has a comedy special that aired on Comedy Central on December 21, 2008 called "John Caparulo: Meet Cap" which was directed by Dave Higby. The special was released on CD on February 10, 2009 and on DVD on April 14, 2009. Cap intermittently hosts "The Mad Cap Hour" radio show with his wife Jamie Caparulo, and comedian Mark Ellis on Sirius XM, toadhopnetwork.com, and iTunes. Although he is currently touring nationally, he also regularly appears on the E! show Chelsea Lately, and voices the character of 'Headphone Joe' on Disney's "Fish Hooks." On the November 4th, 2010 episode of Chelsea Lately, John announced that he proposed to Jamie Marie Kelly after his October 29th performance at the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, California. John and Jamie were wed at Water Street Tavern near their alma mater, Kent State University, on May 27th, 2012. The couple currently resides in Calabasas, California with their two dogs--a Basset Hound and a Puggle.
