DOUG STANHOPE TWITTER CONTROVERSY + CHECK OUT A REVIEW OF ‘BEFORE TURNING THE GUN ON HIMSELF’ ON HECKLERSPRAY…

Posted on March 17, 2012

DOUG STANHOPE has been making waves on Twitter this week after his public row with UK journalist, Allison Pearson. The comic took offense to an article that Pearson had written and the rest as they say, is history. Read more about the feud on Chortle by clicking here.

Doug’s new DVD ‘Before Turning The Gun On Himself‘ is out now and as you may have seen from previous news posts, the reviews and coming in hard and fast. Hecklerspray have reviewed the DVD and you can see an extract below:

His latest DVD, Before Turning The Gun On Himself, shows a man who has resigned himself to the fact that his material, as politically charged as it can be at times, is never going to make a difference to the bigger picture. In a world where subtext is lost on audiences, he’s come to realise that even brutal honesty and directness isn’t enough.

People will still leave his shows, agreeing with him, only to go out and do exactly what he’s been apoplectically criticising on stage for the best part of an hour.

Like Bruce, Hicks and Kinison before him, he pulls no punches and no subject is out of bounds. You may be up for the challenge, you may even think you’re not one to be easily offended, but if you’ve not had a chance to catch his show you might be in for a surprise.

If you have the nerve.
