Storyline

Not all stand-up comedy is spot-cleaned and pre-packaged for the masses. Like the legends who were born out of smokey, booze-soaked nightclubs of decades past, Doug Stanhope spews his own brand of moral outrage in an unmatched style that borders on self-destruction. Nothing is sacred, no subject off-limits and most importantly nothing is contrived. From critically acclaimed appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to regular appearances on The Howard Stern Show, Stanhope always shows an intelligence and brutal honesty in his comedy, no matter how viciously graphic or unsettling the material may be. Taped live at the Gotham Comedy Club, this appearance is an unflinching look at one of the few voices left standing in the dark, punk-rock underbelly of stand-up comedy. Written by Anonymous

Surprisingly good...
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by Doug Stanhope's onstage chain-smoking & beer guzzling.

With an act filled with very funny & astute observations and dead-on social commentary; Stanhope's neither an aging frat-boy nor a redneck. He's a thinker, and a good one at that. ***Note of Caution: this act is NOT for the politically-correct, faint-of-heart or the easily-offended.

He spares no one and calls just about everyone on the carpet. Far from being a copycat comic, Stanhope has his own unique stage presence & style, which is at once confident & self-deprecating.

As with other irreverent-but-brilliant comics of his kind, Stanhope hits the nail on the head in one acerbic punchline after another with many laugh-out-loud moments throughout, and turns what might have been cringeworthy topics in less capable hands into pure comedic gold.
