Doug Stanhope At The Leicester Theatre

The well-known American comedian is coming to London

Doug Stanhope At The Leicester Theatre

LOOK out London: we’ve got the answer to end-of-summer blues. Doug Stanhope, the American comedian known for his irreverent observations about US culture, politics and sex, is returning to the UK for his longest-ever run on the West End.

Popular in the US for his stint as a host on The Man Show, comedy festival appearances, and a Showtime special, he’s not done too poorly on this side of the pond either. In  2007, he brought his caustic wit to Channel 4’s Comedy Lab, and has appeared at Edinburgh Fringe and the Leeds Festival, to both five-star reviews and indignant responses all around. Now, after his sold-out UK performances at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, Stanhope is about to take the Leicester Square Theatre by storm for a whole 25 days. The season coincides with the release of his new CD/DVD ‘Oslo: Burning the Bridge To Nowhere.’

You can pre-order the CD from Leicester Theatre, but don’t forget to book tickets too. As Stanhope himself says, “TV is just for the money. Live performance is where it’s at.” We can’t promise he won’t insult the Royal Family, but we can promise a night of drink and drug-fueled entertainment you won’t soon forget.

25 dates from 2nd August at the Leceister Square Theatre
