Product Description

Live stand up performance from American comedian Doug Stanhope recorded at The Complex in Salt Lake City on July 19th 2011. Stanhope, known for his misanthropic delivery and willingness to engage with taboo subjects that, for some, render him offensive, offers another undiluted interpretation of the world around him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doug's Happy Hour 4 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
Happy hour? Yeah, you'd think it was all doom and gloom but when I listened to the audio version of this I really needed a sane voice to give me a bit of cheer. Doug is that sane voice and did he cheer me up? Hell yes. I laughed and smiled and cheered right up. So it is comedy, not just politics in case you were wondering. In fact, this is Doug on a laugh, not trying to change the world. But with elegant paradox - he achieves both.

Is it for everyone? Not really. If you look at speeches by recent US Republican candidates and feel a warm glow, this isn't for you. If you like to get all fired up and offended by other people's different viewpoints, this might just make your blood literally boil in your veins. And that's something I'd pay a dollar to watch. Like the Scanners finale I'd imagine. If you don't like the sound of one man intelligently thinking for himself, somewhat outside the increasingly narrowing mainstream, and inspiring you to think for yourself and challenge your own lazy views? Again, probably not for you.

In summary, lots of fun for some, and hilarious if you like getting elegantly munted to survive your day in this sometimes joyful world who's mainstream can be occasionally a hell dimension of abject horror. And you have the jaded listless sexual appetite of a 60-year-old colonel.

Five stars then.

5.0 out of 5 stars brutally opinionated, incredibly funny 7 Nov 2012
By tonyh
Format:Audio CD
I think this is his ninth (official) release and there is still no sign of him running out ideas or rehashing old material. Stanhope's ability to come at topics from unexpected angle never ceases to amaze. If you are brave you will find yourself repeating some of this as if it were your own. If the world wasn't so sensitive this guy would be incredibly famous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stanhope is cutting edge 14 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great show from Doug Stanhope. Be it talking about Mitch Hedberg's drug use or mocking the "addiction" specialist Dr Drew this show clicks on lots of levels. Well worth checking this out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doug Stanhope for President. 3 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's our only hope.

Excellent material. Stanhope's an amazing writer and it's all thanks to booze, cigarettes and (removed for legal reasons).

Well played, sir.
