This show was rescheduled from 4th May 2021 (originally 21st October 2020).
Doug Stanhope is an American stand-up comedian hailing from Worcester, Massachusetts. Born in 1967, he has been in the public eye since the early '90s, quickly becoming a figure seen on television screens across both sides of the pond. Known for his hilarious, and often dark and controversial, jokes and observations, Stanhope has recently undertaken a podcast project, too.
An irreverent, brutally honest and opinionated performer whose material ranges from true-life perversion to volatile social criticism. He lives a mad, bad life and what he remembers, he comments on. Sharp, off colour and howlingly funny. 'Much of what's wrong with the world melts away in Stanhope’s flame... comedy with brains and guts and a heart...' (The Guardian) '... the most fearless man in comedy' (Esquire) '... an acidic blend of prickly hostility, elaborately articulated self-loathing and righteous anger' (New York Times) '... visionary douchebag...' (The Times) 'Sharp, off colour, and howlingly funny' (San Francisco Chronicle) 'If there's such a thing as being too honest in comedy, Doug Stanhope may come close... Stanhope has elevated himself to become one of today's most talked-about artists' (Time Out Chicago).
