COMEDY | Doug Stanhope 

A year and a half since his last Rochester show, darkly cynical comic Doug Stanhope will take the stage this week at the recently opened Comedy @ the Carlson. Not for the sensitive at heart, the shameless comedian stuns audiences with his controversial antics, ranging from suicide jokes to laughing about his girlfriend being in a coma. He won the 1995 San Francisco International Comedy Competition and is a two-time winner of Time Out New York's "Best Comedy Performance of the Year." He's also an actor, best known for hosting "The Man Show" on Comedy Central and playing Eddie Mack on Louis C.K.'s "Louie."

The show takes place Sunday, July 2. Comedy @ the Carlson is located at 50 Carlson Road. Doors open at 6 p.m.; show starts at 7:30. General tickets are $35. For tickets or more information, call 426-6339 or You can find more about Stanhope at
