Based in London, Luca Cupani is considered the most British of the new generation of Italian comedians, not just because of his double citizenship, but also because of his style and quirky dry humour.
Cupani’s first stand up gig was at the famous Gong Show at the London Comedy Store – and won. This set him off nicely on his path to winning the So You Think You’re Funny? at the Fringe in 2015.
Luca has been no stranger to the comedy world circuit since – gigging in Dubai and across Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark to name a few) and of course in Italy, where he has appeared on Zelig, the most successful Italian TV comedy show (recorded live in front of an audience of 2300 people).
Cupani has appeared at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, competed in Seattle and San Francisco International Comedy Festival and regularly performs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Luca’s latest show Happy Orphan received multiple rave reviews.
His solo show in Italian has been broadcasted on the TV channel Rai 5 and it is available on streaming on Amazon Prime Video (Italian Stand Up, episode 3). Luca’s UK credits include appearing on Comedians Vs. News (BBC World Service) The Arts Hour (BBC World Service) and The Arts Hour International Comedy Show (BBC World Service)
