Description: Stanhope's new release Before Turning the Gun on Himself--his tenth album and his second CD/DVD set for Roadrunner Comedy--offers a potent double dose of the abrasive, brutally honest brand of standup comedy that's established him as a one-of-a-kind phenomenon. "For a guy whose last name ends in `hope,' he seems to have little for much of anything...he exudes an insightfully vulgar mix of bleakness, anger and despair - much of it laugh-out-loud funny, some of it wince-inducing, all of it genuine-sounding," said The Chicago Sun-Times.
