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."

Editorial Reviews

Recorded in an abandoned factory in the Grünerløkka suburb of Oslo, Norway, the performance is as spontaneous and unhinged as anything Stanhope has ever done. Originally a sewing machine factory converted to a German WWII bunker, the setting for Oslo is anything but conventional. Whereas most comedy specials are filmed on an elaborate stage, Stanhope and Nikon Norway filled a dilapidated industrial space with lights and folding chairs, ultimately allowing the material be the focus of this release.

Package includes a DVD of the full performance, plus a brand new introduction by Doug recorded exclusively for this piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love this guy. May 4, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Doug Stanhope is the smartest, boldest, most honest, and funniest comedian alive today. If not for Doug, I might by now have already cracked and embarked upon a homicidal spree of mayhem, culminating finally in an orgy of self-immolation. But now, thanks to Doug, I understand how trite and tawdry that would be. Doug has shamed me into the realization that misanthropy without creativity is as pointless as becoming a born-again Christian, but then refusing to adopt the attitude of smugness and condescension that is every convert's due.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stanhope Kills Norway May 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I never leave reviews for anything. I listened to Doug Stanhope's newest offering today at work (I work as a housekeeper and am plugged into my ipod all day) and was laughing so hard that guests were peeking in to check if I was alright. Doug is the most insightful, thoughtful, poignant and disgustingly twisted comic that has ever existed. I've been a dedicated fan of his for years now, and this is one of his best records to date, I swear it. Buy it, buy it, buy it and sit with your friends and listen to this special human being go off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only American Comic That Matters May 4, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
There's a handful of funny comics working in 2011, but only one cuts to the brutal, awful, horrific, laugh-til-you-hurt truth like Doug Stanhope. NO REFUNDS, FROM ACROSS THE STREET, and this album are the Holy Grail of post-millennial standup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here or there, funny as always May 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this cd. I'm a huge fan of Stanhope, and pre-order from Amazon guarantees
release day delivery. Release day, and my birthday were the same. Only Doug's autograph
could have made it any better (or seeing his show in person).

Doug is just as hilarious in Norway as he is in the United States.

During his introduction, Doug talks about all of the camera people going insane
throughout the show. And he's right. Way too many cameras, too many different angles.

I have no problems with angle shift during a stand up show, but this was too much.
At one point during the show, one camera they used wasn't focused very well, and the
color was terrible. At around 28:15 or so. Lasted for a few minutes.

One camera person kept getting way to close to both the audience and Stanhope.
Part of a comedy show on DVD is the audience, and their reaction to the show.
I don't know what this person was thinking during the show, but he was all over the place.

I highly recommend this product. DVD and CD for one price.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Doug Stanhope May 4, 2011
By Dan
Format:MP3 Music
Get this, then get his other material. He's like George Carlin if George didn't give up substance abuse. Funny, funny, funny. But not a good Mother's Day gift.

3.0 out of 5 stars great start, lame finish November 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
its hard to know how serious he is being in a lot of this album, but the start is flat out WICKED, he lays into the Norwegian crowd for still having a king and queen and OMG I loved it. As he goes on, the berates himself quite a bit, saying things like the fact that he is playing shows in Norway means he is pretty much washed up and nowhere left to go but Lithuenia. Might be true, who knows. Then he gets into sex and it's just lame, not funny not witty or very observational.

So I don't know. Worth listening to once I guess. The best woudl be to get it from the library.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS YOU MORONS September 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Truely the most offensive, vile, obscene, and vulgar standup I've watched (since the last show I saw of his)...

...and its for this reason that this has become my most favorite standup of all time.

This is the best standup comedy CD/DVD one could ever own or even hope for. No lie, I truely look at things in a different light now that I've seen this. I no longer get intimidated by extremely gorgeous women. Now I just think to myself... BLORT!!! Baaaahahahahahahahahaha!!!! BLORT!

You have to own this. This is something that won't grow old quick or loose its newness or luster. It will always be ball-bouncingly funny.

Thanks Doug!... and come to the Improv in Addison, TX!
