Stanhope vs. Poorhouse in the Game of Love
You say you like dirty-ass-funny comedy and sleazy dive bars. If you somehow miss seeing Doug Stanhope at the best bar in this god-forsaken city, the Poorhouse (110 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale), then you dont deserve to ever set foot in Broward County again - ever, never, ever. End of story. If youre a fan of comedy but dont know who Doug Stanhope is, you probably enjoy the Other Kind of stand-up. The kind that doesnt involve cussing, boozing, drugging, the benefits of abortion, or inviting conspiracy theorists on stage thats cool. Stay home. Therell be more room for those of us who do. See, Stanhope doesnt tell jokes as much as he offers a smorgasbord of stories and vignettes that border somewhere between slander and wisdom. The not-to-be-missed show happens Friday at 9 pm and the cost is unknown. Visit www.dougstanhope.com. Get there early before the show sells out, he gets too drunk, or someone picks a fight.
