About the Artist
The Austin Chronicle says, "Let me tell you something, friends. Doug Stanhope is one funny sumbitch. He's also one of the most twisted individuals I've ever met, but that's part of his charm. He's one of those comics that doesn't make shit up. He lives a mad, mad life and what he remembers he reports back to us. He's been known to bare his soul, and other things, right there on the stage. If you're easily offended, stay home this week. Watch Matlock or something. But if you like your comedy rough, raw, and rowdy, there's no one better than Doug Stanhope. Have I made myself clear?"
If there is one universal opinion about Doug Stanhope it is this: He's not for everybody. His material ranges from true-life graphic perversion to volatile social criticism. Doug is vulgar, opinionated, brutally honest and shockingly uninhibited yet manages to remain truly, if not curiously, likeable.
Before taking over as co-host of the Man Show on Comedy Central, his stand up has been featured on several television shows including "Comedy Central Presents", "Premium Blend," NBCs "Late Friday" as well as appearances on "The Howard Stern Show" and "SpyTV."
He also wrote, produced and starred in Foxs "Invasion of the Hidden Cameras," which aired in the summer of 2002.
Yet the boundaries of television leave viewers with only a hint at what Dougs live appearances entail. Stanhopes third live CD, "Die Laughing," released in March of 2002, takes stabs at everything from abortion to school shootings to Jesus. Previous CDs "Sicko" and "Something to Take the Edge Off" are balanced with more autobiographical stories about drugs, prostitution and other tales of life from a road less traveled.
Hes appeared at all the major comedy festival including the Montreal Just For Laughs (1997), Aspen US Comedy Arts (1996, 2002), Chicago Comedy Festival (1998, 2000, 2002) and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland (2002).
In 2002, he was named as one of the Top Ten Comics To Watch by both Variety and the Hollywood Reporter.

I love what this guy has to say, and can't say I disagree with him on any of the topics he talks about here or in other shows. At times I am amazed that before I heard some of his (mostly more recent -Oslo) routines I was already thinking along the same lines.... (such as preventive medicine, Obama's effect as the first black in the WH, etc.... Suicide... I agree 100%)
Probably hard to digest for the masses of sheeple though because he doesn't sugar coat things and sugar coating has been the way our masses like to get things delivered, maybe that's the reason for so many obese people.
If you like him you'll probably also like Jim Jeferies and Louis C.K.
