Doug Stanhope Wife, Girlfriend, Mother, Wiki, Net Worth

One thing is for certain: Doug Stanhope can make anybody laugh. Well, almost anybody. The standup comedian, author, and actor is well known for his controversial and cynical approach to his craft.

He has also been rebuked occasionally for doing things that people saw as inappropriate and distasteful. However, this hasn’t stopped him from growing in his craft, as he has toured outside the United States in countries like Canada and Scotland. He has also appeared in a myriad of talk shows and movies while working with comic greats such as Chris Rock.

Doug Stanhope has performed in all sorts of places, including a maximum security prison in Iceland, at the approval of the city’s mayor. It was set up such that fans who wanted to attend the show would have to commit a crime and be arrested for it.

In 2013, Doug raised approximately $126,000 for a woman and her family who had lost their home to a tornado that had ravaged the city of Moore in Oklahoma. He praised her especially for her defiant atheism in a predominantly Christian state.
