Doug Stanhope is a beloved comedian known for his caustic, dark, honest humor.

His latest book, Digging Up Mother, is a tribute to his late mother Bonnie. In true Stanhope style, it’s a bizarre and charming mixture of scummy debauchery, relentless self-criticism, biting social commentary, and, of course, straight-up comedy.

Stanhope sat down with Reason TV to discuss comedy, what Alcoholics Anonymous taught him about standup, his time dabbling in Libertarian party presidential politics, and how his mother—for better or worse—shaped him into the man he is today.

Approximately 13 minutes. Interview by Zach Weissmueller. Camera by Paul Detrick and Alexis Garcia. Music by Teleidofusion.
