Biography

"Once you do standup, it spoils you for everything else," says Doug Stanhope. "There're no censors, there're no sponsors to get offended, there're no standards and practices. It's just you, and it's immediate gratification. You say it, and drifts off into thin air, and you can say it a different way the next day."

The world needs Stanhope more than Stanhope needs the world.
Collect his every word before he finally throws up his hands in frustration and walks off the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 22 Oct 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This guy is an astounding comedian. His material isn't for everyone but for those who are of a disposition where you get easily offended please remember that this is just an act. Some comedians are offensive for offensive sake and Doug Stanhope does not fall into that category. Behind the words lie a subtlety that a lot of listeners will not appreciate but there is a well versed well rehearsed and highly honed act that matches anything on the comedy circuit today. This cd is a must buy for those comedy fans who are growing ever tired of the bland, witty, satiristic comedians who are doing the rounds in the uk at the moment. Make no mistake, Doug Stanhope is comedy genius, an absolute comedy genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comedy CD Must-have 25 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
(The full title is 'Deadbeat Hero, BTW')

Mr Stanhope is the most exciting and offensive comedian in the world today, and this is his most extreme album.

The track-listing includes "Two-headed baby",trannies, vasectomy & abortion so you can imagine the topics, but they are explored with great originality & wit.

Some of the material on his albums overlap, so I would recommend this album with Sicko to get a good understanding. His website is excellent too.

The obvious complaint would be to see him as a rip-off of Bill Hicks topics (drugs, smoking, sex) with a libertarian ("Don't tell me to put a seatbelt on!") attitude but he does go much further.

He is a rare visitor to the UK (perhaps more so after being banned from the Kilkenny Comedy Festival) but I have tickets for his Manchester show later in the year, ha-ha!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Epitome of the Real 10 Jan 2007
By Alain Blanc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Comedy is diverse. You have comedians like Brian Regan who discuss trivial but funny issues, and don't use profanity. You have eccentric comedians like Mitch Hedberg who rely on delicate but cleverly phrased one-liners. Ray Romano and Jeff Foxworthy discuss family life. No doubt, it's all funny; but every once in a while you get someone like Doug Stanhope, the embodiment of the abyss, way beyond Bill Maher's cynicism. Stanhope is nihilism.

When people think of nihilism, they most likely think of chaos, failed hippie communes, and in general misdirected angsty teenagers with nothing to do. Stanhope escapes this by embracing an optimistic twist to nihilism. The jokes he tells, you definitely wouldn't tell to family and friends, and you probably don't want to anyway because Stanhope is there just for YOU.

He acknowledges the establishment is screwing you over, so drink on the company dime. If you get fired, steal something. He tells extremely lewd sex jokes and does a piece on the Iraq War. In all of this, I don't believe he insulted anyone but himself. I like this. Race or prejudice/stereotype related jokes are funny but they create some tension. Even when you're alone, you think to yourself as you laugh nervously, is that really funny? But Stanhope does something rare. He destroys his own ego. This is self-deprecating humor at its best. He doesn't rely on anyone but himself to make you laugh. He allows you to just relax. You don't have to censor your laughter anymore. To me, that's comedy. Carlos Mencia and some others seem to think comedy is all about tension. It isn't. Comedy, for me, doesn't consist of making fun of other races or constantly pointing out the stupidity of others. That trick is overdone. Read Nietzsche. Who's he making fun of? Read Plato, who's he making fun of behind all that flowery prose? Dumb people. We get it! People are dumb. But it's not funny. It's like listening to a George W. Bush joke, over and over until oblivion knocks on the door.

What comedians need to understand is they're comedians, the audience isn't. The audience still has to censor itself. With Stanhope, this isn't necessary. Stanhope doesn't rely on overused stereotypes or observations to make his point. Instead he points to himself. This offers originality and extremely obscure situations that would never happen. There's no tension anymore. He allows the audience to enjoy a good cup of black humor, without thinking twice.

5.0 out of 5 stars deadbeat her0 23 Feb 2005
By A. Stearns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
well.. i searched high and low for this disk. Even went out of state to get it, and still denied. And tonight i went to the local wal-mart for batteries, and much to my suprise they had it on dvd *which came w/ the audio cd* for $11.99. I could've done a back flip i was s0 happy. Got it home, popped in the dvd and oh yes, ladies and gents. It's rude, crude, fowel humor and i love it. Another Stanhope classic. Expecially track 7..cracks me up every time. Definately buy this album, if you like uncut-rude comedy! A+

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Album 3 Nov 2008
By Sean O. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album, quite possibly Doug's Best. If you enjoy dark humor from a loud drunk then this is it. this Libertarian ex-presidential candidate is by far one of funniest comics in the country, his stand-up ranges from drugs and alcohol to deformed babies to effecting the legal system. All of which will leave you on the floor laughing. BUY IT NOW then go search for Doug's tour dates so you can catch him preforming near you

5.0 out of 5 stars Deadbeat Hero 15 Aug 2005
By Rebecca Lyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must say, before I had heard this, I had heard a lot of things (mostly good) about Mr. Stanhope. After hearing this, I can see why I had. This man takes absolutely no prisoners. As he says near the beginning of his show, "Seeing me is like going off to battle, some of you aren't going to be here in the end." With his content, I can definately see why he might say such a thing. He goes over everything, from terrorism to two-headed babies, he mercilessly covers it all. This guy can deliver too. He flows through his set like no other, keeping everyone wondering the same thing, "What will he say next?" It's that good. I'm a huge fan of Bill Hicks and I still wasn't prepared for this. Nobody can be. There is nothing like this.

Brutually honest and hilarious. I highly recommend this cd and Doug Stanhope in general. He will challenge you and open your mind or just piss you off and make you sad. Either way its pure entertainment!
