12 Years of debauchery, diatribes, and artfully-used profanity.
3 June 2003 | by (Santa Cruz, Ca) – See all my reviews

Staying true to declaring that his comedy is not for everyone, Doug Stanhope's animated performance and his incorporation of his audience shows that his more than a decade as a road comic hasn't been fruitless.

Encouraging his audience to be loud and disruptive fuels his material, spiking it with a opportunities to play his audience, even make jokes at their expense.

Stanhope rips apart airport security, making fun of guys standing around in camouflage, "who haven't done push-ups in five years." Before tearing into the hypocrisy he despises in the U.S. Government, he takes a moment to make fun of bin Laden, and his current uselessness; saying, "bin Laden can't get one muslim to leave a flaming bag of dog crap on an American doorstep and ring the bell."

For years Stanhope has praised drug use and said he has done drugs, and will not quit. He elaborates, sharing his experiences with Viagra, and even illicit drugs.In "Word of Mouth" Stanhope incorporates material from his albums and some unpublished material one can find on his site

jumping around the stage like a hyperactive child, Stanhope performs drunk, and sometimes searches for the right word fighting off the effects of the beer he drinks on stage.

This performance will offend supporters of Bush, overly pious people, and anyone who can't handle excessive amounts of profanity.

So if you fall into that category, watch it anyway.
