Plot

Not all stand-up comedy is spot-cleaned and pre-packaged for the masses. Like the legends who were born out of smokey, booze-soaked nightclubs of decades past, Doug Stanhope spews his own brand of moral outrage in an unmatched style that borders on self-destruction. Nothing is sacred, no subject off-limits and most importantly nothing is contrived. From critically acclaimed appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to regular appearances on The Howard Stern Show, Stanhope always shows an intelligence and brutal honesty in his comedy, no matter how viciously graphic or unsettling the material may be. Taped live at the Gotham Comedy Club, this appearance is an unflinching look at one of the few voices left standing in the dark, punk-rock underbelly of stand-up comedy.

IMDb Comment

With a cigarette in hand and a beer nearby, Doug Stanhope is one of the last guys in comedy whose image is not calculated to be something it isn't. Coming along with the other tell it like it is comics such as Dave Atell and the late, great Bill Hicks, Stanhope sets the hounds loose on any and every subject. He will offend and hopefully it's for thought provoking reasons.

He's an American who's also appealing to UK audiences, as well as a convenient target for certain journalists who are among those offended by his in your face explanations of just why he has given the on the record quotes that bothered them. Yes, Stanhope is not conforming to a kinder, gentler take on what's so disturbing to him about society because his style is like napalm compared to less daring performers who have a "style" more like finger paint.

Here he'll tell you exactly what he thinks the internet's role in deviant activity extends to, why religion is like kryptonite to many modern adults, how his generation are disappointed with their youthful successors, why the New York Yankees suck, what drugs used to represent compared to today's mind altering substances and so much more.

Stanhope, one of the best working comics around!
