    I heard that Doug Stanhope doesn't just beat up his hecklers, he also goes round their old mums' houses and tweaks their noses. That's just what I heard.

    My admiration of Stanhope has risen another notch.

    I saw him in St Albans last week - loads of idiots thrown out. Some of his best material is about an ongoing twitter war with Telegraph columnist Allison Pearson about the tetraplegic guy in the news recently who wants assisted suicide and is praying for a fatal disease. She suggested he could starve himself to death. Doug called her a cunt and wished a fetid ovarian cyst on her. The Guardian and Indy have joined the row. Pearson is trying to get him sacked and says she will report him to the police for threatening her with cancer. She's done another piece in the Sunday Times, but neither Doug nor his fans know what it says because nobody will pay Murdoch to read it. Can someone pls borrow it from a library/pub and scan it? The world is waiting. :)

    Threatening her with cancer?

    Tbh if Doug Stanhope is threatening anyone within cancer, it's himself.

    Interested. He has been quoted out of context before by right wing journalists.

    He's a cunt of the highest order. Quelle surprise!

    Even Jimmy Carr has jokes. Stanhope's act consists of walking around a stage in a lumberjack's shirt and hat with a six-pack of PBR talking to himself in front of a bunch of sycophantic Charlie Brooker fans. Just a bit of a dick.

    Have you even bothered to think about what that evil cunt Pearson is trying to do?

    She deserves far worse than being ripped on the web.

    Do you think Stanhope's funny? Seriously?

    If so you're even more a cunt than him :)

    You haven't thought about what Pearson was trying to pull and why. Have you?

    That'd be a 'no' then.

    It seems a perfectly normal piece (the telegraph one).. not sure, is there a backstory here I should know about...?

    What, exactly, is amusing about this?

    Things is, I can totally understand why you think this.
    I cannot really argue with you.

    But, I also think, in the right context he is incredibly clever and astute and I loved him live.
    Even though I bit off all my nails with the discomfort of it all.

    So you've done fuck all thinking or reading about Pearson, her motives and bigotries.

    Each to their own. I think im too old for stand up comedy these days. The egos required to actually do standup completely invalidates any respect I might have had for the person in question, so it's a catch22.

    Bill Hicks, for instance - I used to think was a genius when i was 20. Watched a few clips recently, and he's just a dick.

    You're correct.

    I have however sat through a bit of Stanhope. I'd rather have a drink with the author of that article tbh... rather than someone who mocks Down's Syndrome babies. But each to their own.

    You'd prefer to drink with someone that wishes to make someone, who's extremely vulnerable to suffer like nothing you could imagine. Just because you got kicked out of a gig. You sick prick.
