Reality check with bells on




This clip is from the BBC Four series, Charlie Brooker's Newswipe. The Doug Stanhope feature has become my family's favourite bit of the programme.

His commentary on life is so true it's scary. And obviously hilarious. Enjoy.

I like the one where he ends up by saying that abortion is green!

Yeah, Doug pretty damn awesome. Would you believe they won't let me watch newspipe if they see my IP is from the states? What the hell?

Doug Stanhope's pretty funny I think. His spot on here actually reminds me a lot of the old Denis Leary black and white MTV spots from the early 90s where he'd just rant for 60 seconds about something with lots of fast cuts and edits. Back when I was young and he was still funny. I think Jonathan Ross used to air those segments on his show back in the day in the UK.
