There is no comedian like Doug Stanhope. There is no person like Doug Stanhope. An absolute inspiration to comedians to not give up on the topics they want to present, as well as an inspiration to comedians who feel as if the industry is pushing them around. Stanhope is a cliche; a true living legend.
Not the funniest comedian, but one of the most notable pioneers for “dark comedy” and possibly one of the best writers comedy as seen. Hicks was a purist at heart and never detoured from his beliefs. He is one of the most admirable artists in the comedic craft and will always be remembered by his confident, crowd commanding attitude and perseverance of the distaste he received while he was alive.
