STANHOPE KICKS-OFF TOUR WITH SHOWTIME SPECIAL/LOW TICKETING FEES

July 30, 2012 (Chattanooga, TN) Comedian Doug Stanhope will be featured on Showtime on Friday, August 3 at 10 p.m., in his chart-topping stand-up comedy special, "Before Turning the Gun on Himself." The Showtime special kicks-off Stanhope's 28-city "Big Stink" comedy tour, featuring all-new material, on Aug. 7. Tickets to the "Big Stink" tour, with special guests Carlos Valencia and Junior Stopka at all August live tour dates, and with Brett Erickson and Geoff Tate at all September shows, will be sold exclusively through Brown Paper Tickets as a means of protecting fans from high ticketing fees.

"I've been using Brown Paper Tickets for many years to avoid the high fees that other ticketing companies charge my fans," Stanhope said. "It's perfect for performers who can't afford to be Louis C.K."

Stanhope digitally released "Before Turning the Gun on Himself" in March 2012, and it immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard, iTunes and Amazon comedy charts. Recorded in Salt Lake City, UT at The Complex, the live companion CD/DVD will be out November 6, 2012, and will also be sold through his own website.

Tickets range from $22-$27, including all fees, and are available now at http://www.dougstanhope.com and through Brown Paper Tickets. Stanhope is a winner of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, was twice named "Best Comedy Performance of the Year" by "Time Out New York," hosted Comedy Central's "The Man Show," and his own Sirius FM radio show, as well as dozens of national and international standup comedy television specials and even an appearance in a motion picture, "The Aristocrats," alongside George Carlin, Don Rickles and Chris Rock.
