Editorial Reviews

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 mater 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.

This DVD includes Doug Stanhope’s ALL NEW and much-talked-about show that aired on Showtime, plus many other exclusive extras!

Format: DVD
In fact, he crosses many lines. Listening to him, you realize how seldom the boundaries of free speech are tested by public personalities. It's not so much a question of censorship as self-censorship; people mostly remain within certain, unspoken limits. When someone does not respect these limits, they stand out, especially if they do it in a creative and entertaining way, as Doug Stanhope does. I have to admit I had never even heard of him until I happened to see the DVD in the video store. The only comics I can think of comparing him to are Bill Hicks and maybe George Carlin at his edgiest (I know he's been compared to Lenny Bruce, but, unfortunately, so far I've never had the chance to see any footage of his material).

This concert video really illustrates how comedy can be far more than a mere diversion, but a potent weapon with which to attack various sacred cows of polite society. Stanhope wears a t-shirt that says "Libertarian" -this is actually an understatement; he is an unapologetic hedonist, bordering on nihilist. He conducts the show while chain smoking and chugging beer. Describing this, it may sound a little like adolescent style rebellion, but combined with his material it fits perfectly. I recall another comic who smoked onstage, Andrew Dice Clay, but in my opinion he only succeeded in being obnoxious and offensive without being very funny or insightful.

Stanhope says things that many people would be afraid to say out loud, or maybe never even thought of. Among other things, he explains why he is pro-abortion, why the dangers of child pornography are exaggerated, the evils of anti-smoking laws, the virtues of drugs and alcohol and the many flaws of traditional religions like Christianity and Judaism.

Format: DVD
On the surface, one might see Stanhope's act and peg him as self-depricating, disheveled, dark, fairly buzzed and either spontaneously vulgar or a possible Tourette's sufferer. Most of that is probably true. But within (and beyond) that persona is absolute master of pacing, timing, inflection, volume and gesture. Add caustic wit into the mix, also fearless social critic, and oh yeah - brilliant and imaginative writer.

Absolutely not for everyone - but then neither was Hicks, Kinison, Bruce or any of the great ones. Savor the ability to watch a comedy genius in his prime, even if you might be the only one on your block who's clued in. And if your only exposure to Stanhope is from GGW or The Man Show, hose out your head and start fresh - this is completely different - the real guy with no training wheels or seat belt. Seek out his other DVDs and his CDs, especially Something To Take The Edge Off and Die Laughing.

Stanhope takes no prisoners. Likewise, you don't have to settle for pablum comics.

Format: DVD
We live in a world of spin. Politicians, religious leaders, entertainers, teachers, and even our own friends and family are constantly feeding us censored, politically correct, and self-serving takes on the world.

So who in our society is left that will actually tell the truth?

Sometimes I think that role might solely belong to stand-up comedians, or at least the rare genius handful of them which Mr. Stanhope can be included in. In "No Refunds," Mr. Stanhope stands on a stage in a comedy club, his 40ish face bathed in unflattering light, clearly tipsy and chain smoking, and tears our whole phony, rotten society a new one.

He's fearless, and no subject, no matter how taboo, is off limits. He talks about religion, abortion, pedophelia, antidepressants, the American work ethic, drug use, promiscuity ... you name it. His opinions are not politically correct, but neither are they just childishly put out there for shock value. Like Bill Hicks or George Carlin before him, Doug Stanhope's most provocative quality might be his sense of reason and logic in a world that often clings blindly to ridiculous and outdated ideas.

Format: DVD
Stanhope is going all the way to the top of the comedy slag heap, somehow, at some point, despite and because of his accurate honesty about America. His timing and material get better year after year, and he's fast on his feet, especially when drunk, which is usually.

I first saw him in 1999 at a little dive with 20 people. He came on for the second show good and hammered, drank like a fish the whole set, and just got funnier and funnier until the room exploded and the bartender was laughing so hard he couldn't pour drinks. Never saw that before or since.

Stanhope's stand-up is take-no-prisoners; leave your sensitive side at home. If you've got an open mind and a strong stomach, he's one of the funniest comics out there today.

I've listened to all Doug's albums and seen all the shows that are publicly availible, and No Refund is definatley the best, funniest thing he's made yet. He's amazing at the observational humor where you watch it and go "yeah, that's so true". Although he's toned down a little on his amusingly revolting material (no more prostitue transvestite story) he still manages to throw heaps of $hit in his own face and elaborate about things no one else would admit, even to themself.
His shows are never family friendly, but if you prefer you comedy to be rather dark and over the edge, in the tradition of Dave Attell and Andrew Dice Clay, you will not go wrong with Doug Stanhope.
