For those of you who are familiar with Mr. Stanhope already then you know the score.
This is probably not his most politically cutting or socially on point. If you're looking for the 'latter-day Bill Hicks' incarnation of Stanhope, this isn't it.
What this is is an irreverent, hard-living and self-destructively honest comedian at his self-critical best. Dealing with subjects and situations that other comics would be terrified to even touch upon, Stanhope clearly LIVES what he preaches for better or worse. He's not afraid to turn back views he's espoused before and he's openly self-destructive but he starts digging and doesn't stop and the results are nothing short of inspiring.
This is a comedian working for one sole purpose; to be funny. He's experienced things wholeheartedly that most of us never will (and thank god for that) and he's done it with his entire heart and soul and translates that to the stage.
It goes without saying, if you're easily offended? He's so very not right for you that it's barely worth saying at all. But if you have an open mind and want to hear what one of the very best comedians (still) alive today can do when he's in the groove and totally on form? Then I cannot recommend this material highly enough.
