Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars "Life is like animal porn. It's not for everybody", 11 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Something to Take the Edge (Audio CD)
Stanhope is very refreshing... I had no problems getting into the material even though it is in audio form and not dvd. In fact I have five of Stanhope's cd's. They are all excellent.
This cd is not for the weak. His material is crass, but then, if you've been paying attention, so is life!
Doug Stanhope is one of the only comedians today that can make me laugh out loud! This cd is gritty, edgy and not for the easily offended, but funnier than hell!
Plenty of comic's are filthy but Doug elevates his filth with genuine wit.

My favourite bit was where he drew a comparison between the crowds a rock star commands, and the crowds a stand-up comedian commands. Asking the audience, "By round of applause, who came here to see ME specifically tonight." A smattering of applause.
"Okay, who came to see whichever douchebag happened to be standing behind the mike and couldn't care less who it was?" A massive cheer.

PS. Henry Philips manages to provide a great soundtrack to the gig.
