Stand-up comedian and libertarian presidential candidate Doug Stanhope was at the Guild Cinema last night on 21 January 2007 at 8:00 PM.
I met with Doug tonight after his show in town—he definitely was worth the 18 bucks at the door. (Shame he didn’t have any merch on hand!) After the show, we went for a couple of beers at the nearby Kelly’s Brewpub.
Right now, he’s in the exploratory-committee phase, and working on refining his message so it will be relevant to the campaign, but won’t burn out his comedy audience with old material.
As a candidate, I think he’ll do fine — take a look at his online interview with Hammer of Truth—HoT is STILL down at this point (WTF, Van Dyke?), but not a problem, Doug has republished that interview on his sites —
I’ve set up a Yahoo group for the Stanhope campaign, but have yet to see any activity on it—the link is below with the others.
