From Childhood Dreams to Stand-Up Comedy

Capo, who is in her fifties, admits that she has been a fast talker since childhood. However, she never intentionally prepared to break any records. Her dream was always to become an actress. It just so happened that she became a stand-up comedian and often entertained audiences with her tongue twisters. In the 1980s, she heard about a special category for tongue twisters in the Guinness World Records. This sparked her determination to set a record and she began training.
