'Sicko'was taped live at the Laff Stop (Houston, TX) in November 1998, it features some of Stanhope's greatest & most classic stories often heard in his stand up routine. What can be said about Doug Stanhope that hasn't been said already' Doug is a truly fearless comedian who really doesn't care if you laugh or not. Either way, when you listen to him, you are going to hear a bit about the truth. And some deviant sex talk, too. Doug has recently, as of Summer 2002, starred in Fox's Invasion of the Hidden Cameras as well as won the Critics Award for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Here's the Bio from his website. Doug Stanhope is a stand-up comic. Has been since 1990. His material ranges from true-life graphic perversion to volatile social criticism. Doug is vulgar, opinionated, brutally honest and shockingly uninhibited and is certainly not for everybody. He started his career in Las Vegas doing jack-off jokes for free drinks. Not much has changed, save for the mullet. Doug has built a wide-ranging television resume of dubious achievement. He hosted The Man Show on Comedy Central as well as the ubiquitous pseudoporn for the sexually crippled, 'Girls Gone Wild', both solely and shamelessly for financial gain. He has appeared on 'The Howard Stern Show', 'Comedy Central Presents', 'Premium Blend', NBC's 'Late Friday', 'Spy TV' BBC's 'Floor Show Live' while on ecstasy and wrote, produced and starred in Fox's 'Invasion of the Hidden Cameras' and has even popped up on 'Fox News with Greta Van Sustern' and 'The Jerry Springer Show'. But none of it compares to seeing him live. He's appeared at major comedy festivals including the Montreal Just For Laughs, Aspen US Comedy Arts, Chicago Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, where he won the Strathmore Press Award in 2002. Also in 2002, he was named as one of the Top Ten Comics To Watch by both Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. He has released three CDs and three DVDs including the latest through Showtime, 'No Refunds' in 2008. 'Stanhope shocks you with the virulence of his lucidity; he shocks you into realising how transparent the confidence trick of western propaganda can be made to seem. What he has in abundance is the charm, don't-give-adamn swagger and aggressive intelligence that make for important, exciting comedy.' -Guardian, UK.
