US Comedian Doug Stanhope

Acclaimed US comedian Doug Stanhope will hit Southeast Asia with his debut Asia tour in March 2018, dishing out his incomparable brand of acerbic social commentary for local audiences on a seven-show run in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Manila.
Stanhope has been compared to such fearless comic revolutionaries as Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks. But his work makes it abundantly clear that he’s a complete original. In a field crowded with conformists and copycats, Stanhope is a genuinely original comic voice, albeit a gleefully vulgar one.
“A visionary douchebag.” — The Times
“Much of what’s wrong with the world melts away in Stanhope’s flame... comedy with brains and guts and 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
