Fearless stand-up takes on a bigger Aberdeen audience after sell-out show

Outrageous and outspoken comic Doug Stanhope, who made his Aberdeen debut with a sell-out show at The Lemon Tree in April, is planning a bigger encore on his return to the city next year.

As part of mammoth 40 date UK tour, the no-holds-barred comedian hailed as one of the top 10 stand-ups in the world today will perform at the Music Hall on Thursday, March 29.

Tickets went on sale on Monday (September 12) and are available online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.

The fearless funnyman has been described as brutal, shambolic, savage, unpredictable and as someone who displays scant respect for any personal, moral, or social boundaries.

He is a two-time winner of the prestigious Time Out New York Award for the Best Comedy Performance of the Year and also landed the Strathmore Press Award for the best act at his Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut.

Doug has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Comedy Central Presents, Premium Blend, NBC’s Late Friday, Spy TV BBC’s Floor Show Live while on ecstasy and wrote, produced and starred in Fox’s Invasion of the Hidden Cameras and has even popped up on Fox News with Greta Van Sustern and The Jerry Springer Show.

Last year he was the Voice of America on the BBC’s Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe.
