Doug Stanhope announces London date

UK tour in 2018

Doug Stanhope has announced a London date as part of a 2018 UK tour.

The outspoken American comic will be playing the Hammersmith Apollo on June 16 with additional dates  including Manchester, Glasgow and Bath to be added later.

It is part of a global tour which  takes in the Far East in March and Australia in April.

 Stanhope’s material covers abortion, child abuse, racism and rape, and in a recent interview he said: ‘I gravitate towards subjects that are controversial because that’s what’s interesting to me. I have no take on the Kardashians. I don’t watch it, it doesn’t affect my life.’

The first tickets are already on sale here.

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
