- Release Date: 12/3/2013
In 1923, a young Adolf Hitler gave a speech in Munich Beer Hall to incite a group of drunks to try and topple the German government, in an event known as the Beer Hall Putsch. 90 years later, acerbic comic Doug Stanhope gives his own ramblings to a drunk room, in this stand-up special recorded live at Dante's in Portland. Instead of Nazi uprising, he's here to share his twisted NFL fantasies, living next to aging boxers, and his advice to activists. Stanhope is a true comedian's comedian. In the last two years, he has been praised by Ricky Gervais, Robin Williams, Judd Apatow, Sarah Silverman and more. Louie C.K. specifically wrote a role for Doug in his critically acclaimed show Louie - this episode has been hailed as one of the best of the series because of Doug's honest performance.
