Stanhope's earlier DVD demonstrates something he no longer displays. Social relevance. In recent shows he himself admits this shift. What used to be a more creative, yet very offensive onslaught on politics and drug fuelled stories has given way to what for all practical purposes is racial abuse and comments that no longer display skill at double meaning. Rather the comic has painted himself into a corner. Once you've done hard-edged comedy for 15 years, there's nowhere left to go but the obscene.

I have to admit I am a former fan. One that, after a fair amount of debate and thought, and not the knee-jerk reactions of some of his US public, has to admit that the present state of his avct is no longer what I bought into him for.

I don't think this show is as bad as you say it is. Its just the same as his other stuff. I thought it was his first DVD release as well.

He really is an excellent stand up comedian. He is playing during in England during the Manchester Comedy Festival in October. I can't wait!

sounds like just my cup of tea, I love rant based comedians like George Carlin so this really appeals :) xx E.
