American stand-up comedian Doug Stanhope will be heading to the Eventim Apollo this October for what is sure to be a night to remember.
Stanhope began his comedic career in 1990 when he would tell jokes in Las Vegas in exchange for free drinks and the rest, as they say, is history. Since his days in Sin City, Stanhope has become a familiar face with numerous television appearances under his belt, including The Howard Stern Show and Comedy Central Presents. He was also the Voice of America on BBC’s Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe!
The comedian also won the Strathmore Press Award for Best Act of the Fringe during his debut year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotland and has also made various appearances at a number of comedy festivals all over the world including Montreal Just For Laughs and Aspen US Comedy Arts.
The Times of London referred to Stanhope as “…visionary douchebag…” and we can’t wait to find out what this really means at the Eventim Apollo this year!
Tickets for Doug Stanhope go on sale Monday 30th March and will be available here.
