Summary
"While other comedians were seeking fame, Stanhope was seeking immediate gratification, dark spectacle, or sometimes just his pants. Not to say he hasn't rubbed elbows with fame. He's crashed its party, snorted its coke, and jumped into its pool naked, literally and often repeatedly--all while artfully dodging fame himself. Doug spares no legally permissible detail, and his stories couldn't be told any other way"--Amazon.com
Summary
The veteran stand-up comedian with a cult-like following describes in uncensored hilarity his career and relentless pursuit of fame, from taking a job doing gay phone sex just for the story to filming his own vasectomy to promote tour ticket sales
