We're taping two shows at The Complex in SLC for my new DVD to be out for Christmas. It's a very small room and only days away so get your tickets immediately, jump in the van, start driving or flying in from whatever state or country you live in and I'll start doing my hair.
"But a Tuesday night? People have to work in the morning!"
Yeah? Fuck em! Besides, the best audiences don't have jobs or at least show up to them drunk.
I'm done booking 2011 so check the schedule and see when I'm near you. If I'm not, it's probably because you said something mean to me the last time and I'm sore about it. Or maybe I just didn't have time and I'll get there next year.
Sorry Arkansas and Mississippi, somehow your paperwork just keeps getting lost in the mix year after year.
Everyone else... check the tour dates.

Stanhope has taped TV specials for Showtime and UK’s Channel 4. He was also featured in controversial film The Aristocrats alongside George Carlin, Don Rickles and Chris Rock to name a few.
