This Is Not Fame : A Blottobiography
Doug Stanhope is a veteran of over twenty-five years of stand-up comedy. With a litany of dubious television credits, he has successfully dodged mainstream fame using his uncompromising brand of stand-up to build a cult-like following around the world. He's won numerous accolades and has recorded over a dozen comedy specials. Stanhope tours extensively in North America and overseas. He has been described by the New York Times as "an acidic blend of prickly hostility, elaborately articulated self-loathing, and righteous anger." A regular guest on the Howard Stern Show and appointed the Voice of America for Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe on the BBC, Stanhope continues to be an armchair revolutionary for the excluded, ignored, forgotten, and wasted of society, rallying them with what The Guardian calls "comedy with brains and guts and a heart." Stanhope resides in the US border town of Bisbee, Arizona, with pets who have people names, in an absurd relationship with his gal pal Bingo.
