Doug Stanhope's WEST COAST Last Gasp Stand-Up Comedy Tour begins June 10th

Tickets for the SANTA CRUZ and OAKLAND shows already SOLD-OUT

 
PRLog - May 29, 2014 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Twice named Time Out New York Winner Best Comedy Performance of the Year, Comedian Doug Stanhope begins the West Coast leg of his Last Gasp Tour on June 10th in Irvine, California at The Improv. The 14 show tour extends through California, Oregon and Washington, ending June 27th at The Showbox, Seattle. The Santa Cruz and Oakland dates have already sold out. Tickets for all other shows can be purchased online at DougStanhope.com or in person at the venue.

Esquire magazine calls Doug Stanhope "the most fearless man in comedy." The often controversial yet critically acclaimed Stanhope has been performing since 1990 and remains one of the most relentless touring comics in the country. Time Out New York has twice voted his live show "Best Comedy Performance of the Year," and The New York Times calls Stanhope's unique blend of smart, crass, uninhibited comedy "an acidic stew of prickly hostility, elaborately articulated self-loathing and righteous anger."

Despite referring to actors as "tools," Stanhope occasionally takes a turn, recently appearing on an episode of FX's critically acclaimed Louie. He will also appear in the upcoming film Finally Famous, written and directed by Chris Rock.

As host, Doug infamously “ruined” the last season of Comedy Central’s The Man Show and has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Opie and Anthony, Comedy Central Presents and NBC's Late Friday. Doug is the Voice of America on BBC television’s Weekly Wipe.

He’s perfumed at multiple major comedy festivals including Montreal’s Just For Laughs and the UK’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he won the Strathmore Press Award for Best Act of the Fringe in his debut year.

Selected by both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter as one of the Top Ten Comics to Watch, Stanhope released his sixth DVD, Beer Hall Putsch, last September.
