DOUG STANHOPE’S “NO PLACE LIKE HOME” SET TO PREMIERE ON SEESO SEPTEMBER 15, 2016
LOS ANGELES, CA – Doug Stanhope’s latest stand-up special, “NO PLACE LIKE HOME” is set to premiere on Seeso, the ad-free comedy streaming channel, on September 15. “NO PLACE LIKE HOME,” taped in Stanhope’s hometown of Bisbee, Arizona, is directed and produced by Brian Hennigan and executive produced by Christi Dembrowski, Johnny Depp, Brian Hennigan, Sam Sarkar and Brian Volk-Weiss of Comedy Dynamics.
“NO PLACE LIKE HOME” tackles an abundance of hard-hitting issues, from caring for the mentally-ill, to Vietnam vets, being locked up abroad and why everyone should kick like they kick. Watch him also take on ISIS, global poverty, TMZ and LGBT related issues. No one is off the table in this one-of-a-kind stand-up special including Gabrielle Giffords, the Duggars daughters, Caitlyn Jenner and Robin Williams.
Doug Stanhope is one of the most critically acclaimed and stridently unrepentant comedians of his generation. Twice awarded “Best Stand-Up Show of the Year” by Time Out New York, and fueled by equal amounts of anger, outrage and alcohol, Stanhope rails against western civilization’s slide into apathy and stupidity, always on the edge of implosion yet fully in control and never afraid to risk upsetting his audiences. Acclaimed by The Times of London as a “visionary douchebag”, Doug was named Best Act of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on his debut year, and was selected by both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter as one of the Top Ten Comics to Watch. As Louis CK noted, “Doug Stanhope has been one the best comics in the world for a very long time, and he only gets better with time.” Ricky Gervais describes him as “one of the most important stand-ups working today”.
