You know, just for levity.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. They're weird, uncomfortable, gross, disturbing, and fucking funny.This Is Not Fame is by no means a story of overcoming a life of excess, immorality, and reckless buffoonery. It's an outright celebration of it. For Stanhope, the party goes on....

Today's world is one of apologies, of hurt feelings, and constant, overbearing political correctness. Stanhope is none of these. Crude, the definition of self destructive, pretty much a stumbling mess of a human being. This is Not Fame is a collection of lewd tales that lead you to wonder, "How is this guy still living?"That being said, few people can tell a story like Doug Stanhope. A drunken swirl of chaos, debauchery, and all around UN politically correct as you possibly can get, buried in the dirt...is a true gem of a collection of stories.When the world ends, Stanhope will be glowing in the dark in his kingdom of ash, lighting his smokes off a radioactive cockroach, he will have a great story to tell...eventhough he probably won't remember it.If you like your humor dark and dirty, this is for you.
Enfuckingjoyable read. If you don't like it, go piss up a rope. I have no original thoughts and am merely filling the Amazon word minimum quota. The headline is all you need.
Exactly what you would expect...Stanhope, as always, simply tells the stories as they happened. No apologies. No embarrassment. No embellishment. He again shows us how inane our world can be and wonders why so many of us still choose to live that way. Agree or disagree...you won't be left guessing where he stands on just about any controversial topic you can imagine. It's like he takes a class about what subjects to avoid in order to make others comfortable doing business with us, then he proceeds to attack every one of those subjects head on....always with his unusual spin. Gotta respect that.
Great stories. Easy enough to read while drunk. What more could a Stanhope fan want?
A funny, irreverent book by one of my favourite stand up comedians. His stuff is....intense....so not recommended for people who can't handle naughty language or bawdy stories.
I've heard almost all of the stories in person before but I enjoyed hearing them all over again. Raw. Irreverent. and laugh out loud funny...excellent sequel my friend!
