Doug Stanhope No Place Like Home
November 28, 2016•12 min
No Place Like Home is Stanhope’s fourteenth comedy special since he began his career in stand-up over 25 years ago. Over the course of his career, Doug has performed in the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, and was named one of the Top Ten Comics to Watch by Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. He has also made numerous television appearances, including a memorable performance on an episode of his friend Louis C.K.’s series Louie. Doug’s growing fan base has helped him sell out theatres across the world. Called “the most important standup working today” by Ricky Gervais and “one of the most bracing live acts on the stand-up circuit” by the Denver Post, Stanhope’s confrontational and vulgar style of comedy has led to him being compared to legends like Richard Pryor, Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks.
