Doug Stanhope


Doug Stanhope is coming back to Fayetteville this weekend.

The comedian, self described as “vulgar, opinionated, brutally honest and shockingly uninhibited,” will perform at Mermaids restaurant on Friday, April 25.

Stanhope was the host of The Man Show on Comedy Central from 2003-2004, guest starred in the hit FX comedy Louis, and has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Opie and Anthony, Comedy Central Presents and NBC’s Late Friday, among others. He was also in town a couple years ago for a show at the UARK Bowl.

This week, the comedian has been in the news for his criticism of fellow comic, Bill Cosby.

“Bill Cosby is not relevant!” Stanhope said in an interview this week. “All of a sudden he goes out and tours now, and people show up because it’s cute that an old man can make words.”

Tickets to is appearance in Fayetteville this week are $25, on sale now at
