Doug Stanhope is shocking. Doug Stanhope is brutally honest. Doug Stanhope’s Doug Stanhope is very very funny.
Over the years, Doug has built a cult following and more recently has appeared on Louis CK’’s “Louie” on FX.
His material ranges from true-life graphic perversion to volatile social criticism. Doug is vulgar, opinionated, brutally honest and shockingly uninhibited and is certainly not for everybody.
He started his career in Las Vegas doing jack-off jokes for free drinks. Not much has changed, save for the mullet.
Doug has built a wide-ranging television resume of dubious achievement. He hosted The Man Show on Comedy Central as well as the ubiquitous pseudo-porn for the sexually crippled, “Girls Gone Wild”, both solely and shamelessly for financial gain. He has appeared on “The Howard Stern Show”, “Comedy Central Presents”, “Premium Blend”, NBC’’s “Late Friday”, “Spy TV” BBC’’s “Floor Show Live” while on ecstasy and wrote, produced and starred in Fox’’s “Invasion of the Hidden Cameras” and has even popped up on “Fox News with Greta Van Sustern” and “The Jerry Springer Show”. In 2010, he was the Voice of America on the BBC’’s Charlie Brooker’’s Newswipe.
None of it compares to seeing him live; Doug is a two-time winner of Time Out New York’’s Best Comedy Performance of the Year.
