As Ricky Gervais tweeted, “Doug Stanhope might be the most important standup working today.” His live show was twice named “Best Stand-Up Show” of the year by Time Out New York, his confrontational rants encompassing caustic social commentary, outlandish first-person narratives, graphic sex and perversion — sometimes within the same sentence. Fueled by equal amounts of anger, outrage and alcohol, Stanhope rails against western civilization’s slide into apathy and stupidity, always on the edge of implosion yet fully in control and never afraid to risk pissing off his audiences. “Stanhope is a genius parading around the slums of failed ideology…he’s Charles Bukowski with dick jokes drunkenly fueled by Thomas Payne,” declared The San Antonio Current.

Doug’s latest comedy special, “No Place Like Home,” is streaming now via Seeso.
