Acclaimed Louie guest star Doug Stanhope will film his new special, Beer Hall Putsch, his third in as many years, this Thursday, April 4th at Portland, Oregon venue Dante’s.
While his last two efforts, 2011 special Oslo: Burning the Bridge to Nowhere and last year’s CD/DVD Before Turning the Gun on Himself… were released through Roadrunner Records, Stanhope will record Putsch with New Wave Entertainment, which has recently produced specials for Jim Gaffigan and Jim Norton. Putsch, the title of which refers to a failed 1923 Hitler coup, will air as an hour-long stand-up special later this year on a yet-to-be-named network, and will also be released on CD and DVD shortly thereafter.
“Dante’s is where it all started for me in terms of booking my own gigs outside of comedy clubs,” says Stanhope of his decision to record in front of an intimate crowd of 150. As for the say-that-again title, “I’m calling it Beer Hall Putsch because I’m sponsored by Google.”
