Lots of truth-telling and brash observations of behavior and society make Stanhope’s live shows as unpredictable as they are hilarious. Louis C.K. fans may recognize him from an August 2011 episode of the FX series “Louie” in which he played a raging, unstable fellow comedian. Netflixers can watch his recent comedy special filmed at a former Nazi hangout in Oslo, Norway. This will be his second appearance in Chattanooga. The All You Can Eat Comedy Buffet brings him here in August.
