Publisher's Summary

An unfiltered, unapologetic, hilarious, and sometimes obscene assemblage of tales from the down-and-dirty traveling comedy circuit
Doug Stanhope has been drunkenly stumbling down the back roads and dark alleys of stand-up comedy for over a quarter of a century, roads laden with dank bars, prostitutes, cheap drugs, farm animals, evil dwarfs, public nudity, menacing third-world police, psychotic breaks, sex offenders, and some understandable suicides. You know, just for levity. 
While other comedians were seeking fame, Stanhope was seeking immediate gratification, dark spectacle, or sometimes just his pants. Not to say he hasn't rubbed elbows with fame. He's crashed its party, snorted its coke, and jumped into its pool naked, literally and often repeatedly - all while artfully dodging fame himself. 
Doug spares no legally permissible detail, and his stories couldn't be told any other way. They're weird, uncomfortable, gross, disturbing, and fucking funny. 
This Is Not Fame is by no means a story of overcoming a life of excess, immorality, and reckless buffoonery. It's an outright celebration of it. For Stanhope, the party goes on.

Honest as it gets!

Doug seemed to drink way less in this book during the reading, so the flow is a lot more smooth and steady. He should uave told that one story but didn't, but there was that other story that made up for it. Very great listen, i couldn't imagine reading it. Reading is for people with time on their hands, like lazy people.

Awful.

Doug is a deeply disturbed and awful man who should be avoided at all costs.

So much better than the book.

Listening to Doug and associates tell this tale is so much better because there is much more with different characters chipping in all the time. It`s like listening to a gang of drunken friends sitting around chatting for an evening.

Doug Stanhope at his best!

An hilarious collection of moments from Doug's life... all the better in Audiobook form due to the interjection of people present when the events occurred... narrators equally as unreliable as Doug.

Put the kids, and your partner, to bed... have a beer or two and just enjoy the ride!

Unapologetically Hilarjous

Stanhope is the Hunter S Thomson of the comedy world and even he would give Hunter a run for his money. Stanhope holds nothing back in his hilarious recounts of his time on the road.
