Underground Comedy Brings Doug Stanhope To Chattanooga

March 31, 2011

REPORTING: MICHAEL EDWARD MILLER

Doug Stanhope is an award-winning, internationally-recognized comedian.  His career has been amazingly diverse: he’s performed at major festivals such as Montreal Just For Laughs and the Chicago Comedy Festival, he’s been on Comedy Central and co-hosted the Man Show, he’s hosted Girls Gone Wild, and he once made a serious bid to be President on the Libertarian Party ticket.

In this piece, Stanhope talks about how social networking has allowed him to avoid mainstream comedy and perform on his own terms; why he dislikes comedy clubs; and a condition called “irony fatigue.”
