Well, if it ends up being a sh*t show, you cannot say Doug Stahope didn’t warn you.
The comedian, who has such diehard fans, they’ll probably follow him to the most remote parts of the country to see him. Beginning on Tuesday, September 17th Doug and comedian Junior Stopka are hitting the road, in markets that you might not know, hence the naming of the tour the “Sh*t Town Tour.”* It’s a bit reminiscent of Bill Hicks’ Flying Saucer Tour.
Stanhope will hit 18 markets in total and set up a fun poll on his website allowing fans to vote on what town on the tour they believe to be the sh*ttiest of towns. What do they win? No clue. Toilet brush perhaps?
In addition to it being the launch of his new tour. September 17th is the same day as the release of his new special, Beer Hall Putsch. Which he recorded this past April at Dante’s in Portland.
