Acclaimed US comedian Doug Stanhope comes to Bangkok with his debut Asia tour this March, dishing out his incomparable brand of acerbic social commentary for local audiences in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam and Tokyo.

EXCLUSIVE: STAGETIME COMEDY CLUB HAS BEEN OFFERED THE ONLY RESERVED SEATING OF THE REMAINING TICKETS  - THE FIRST TWO ROWS OF THE 'MIDDLE SECTION'!   (JUST BEHIND FRONT SECTION & SOLD OUT VIP SECTION - SIX ROWS FROM THE FRONT!) 

Doug Stanhope has been compared to such fearless comic revolutionaries as Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks. But his work makes it abundantly clear that he's a complete original. 'Doug Stanhope is the most dangerous comedian in the world. If we were both fighters I would avoid him at all costs. He is a bad, bad man' - Chris Rock

He’s appeared at multiple major comedy festivals including Montreal Just For Laughs, Aspen US Comedy Arts, Chicago Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotland, where he won the Strathmore Press Award for Best Act of the Fringe in his debut year.

In a field crowded with conformists and copycats, Stanhope is a genuinely original comic voice, albeit a gleefully vulgar one. "A visionary douchebag" says The Times (London). Raw, agitated and unflinching, he holds forth on all manner of major injustices and petty annoyances, excoriating himself as much as any of his other targets. But Stanhope's venomous bile is matched by his passion and conviction, as well as a fierce intellect that gives his work a level of substance and subtlety that belies his snarling exterior. His comedy is as corrosive as it is hilarious, and his righteous self-immolation is exhilarating and life-affirming in its cathartic honesty.

If there's such a thing as being too honest in comedy, Doug Stanhope may come close" (Time Out, Chicago).

 Don't miss one of the most important voices in modern comedy this March. 

"The guy's a genius. He's better than me."

Much of what’s wrong with the world melts away in Stanhope’s flame... comedy with brains and guts and a heart...”
Guardian

“...the most fearless man in comedy”
Esquire

“…an acidic blend of prickly hostility, elaborately articulated self-loathing and righteous anger”
New York Times
