I just thought that it was very rude
it was like that the last time I saw him, expect it to be the same this Saturday. The show was also bedevilled by "hecklers" calling out for their favourite bits all the time: their favourite bits suggested they were only there to hear something shocking, rather than something thought-provoking which is what Doug rules at.
Just got back from tonight's show. It was really good, some of the best stand up I've seen for ages. It took him a while to get into it though (or the booze to kick in).
Yep! tonight was some woman behind us shouting 'midgets!' constantly. TBH I think she may have put off other potential hecklers . Doug dealt with her very well though
The thing with comedy as oposed to music is you want to hear new stuff, because the old stuff isn't funny as you have already heard it. I asked someone if they wanted to come and see Doug and he said, Oh no I've not heard his jokes I dont want to come. People are fucking strange. Its not like seeing a band where you want to have heard the songs so you know them.
Watching 'Doug Stanhope Go Home' on YouTube and liking it
2011 UK dates coming soon.
Hammersmith Apollo confirmed for the 02nd of April
i have tickets for kyuss on 2nd of april so will have to go to another show, hopefully he will do bristol

UK tour dates are being announced almost daily. Manchester dates have recently been announced for 23rd & 24th March.
I'll be there on the 23rd!
reckon i will be going to bath then XD
So anyone going to Hammersmith Apollo on the 2nd April?
I think I'll go. Anyone else got tickets?
its the same day that kyuss play
I think I saw them once on Noisy Mothers. They're still going?
they just reformed after 15 years without josh homme.
gotta love his myspace "about me"
Not yet, can't afford yet but will do at end of month
I loved his 3 parter on youtube with clips from his stand-up show in Edinburgh.
"They don't speak the language, they don't speak the language"
I've heard he's playing in Bath, will probably go to the one there with a mate of mine who digs him and says he's ace live. Pretty funny guy IMO, seen videos where he handles some good heckling wankers etc, like at Big Chill (lol.....)
He seems to have added a few nights at the Leicester Sq Theatre to this tour. I just got tickets for Friday 1st April
Still not booked
getting excited about this now....
Went to see him in Manchester on the 23rd. Really funny, even when he lost his train of thought and failed to deliver anything remotely humorous it was still fascinating to see him think on his feet and get things going again. Some really good new material mixed in with some classics, had the whole place roaring for most of the night. Great stuff.
Yeah I'm going tomorrow with a few mates.
Missed his April gigs but seen he is back at Leicester Square Theatre from August 2nd till September 3rd.
If there's tickets left I shall book a couple at the weekend. The theatre is a dingy shitehole, suits him down to the ground.
You should be good for a while for tickets.
I will book some this month though, not seen him once this year.
Have not seen his respond to a letter
He's got a potty mouth.
