    Description

    Misanthrope. Iconoclast. Apostate. Drunk. Many words have been used to describe Doug Stanhope, but rarely has “hopeful” been one of them. However, heading into 2016, Stanhope peered through the apocalyptic fog and saw a forecast that was more rainbows than acid rain: His first book was set for release, his new stand-up special was in the can, and he was about to film a television pilot with his friend and confidant Johnny Depp. The sharks of Hollywood were circling, and Stanhope’s pockets were filled with chum. The only thing that could stop Doug was himself, and that’s exactly what he did.

    First came the booze, then came the pills, then came the stripper, and then, Doug came. A tryst aboard a cruise ship leaves him literally and figuratively adrift when his scorned wife, Bingo, reveals she is in love with another man: a jug-sippin’, guitar-pickin’ hobo. A simple, black-out fling turns out to be a pebble tossed into the lake of you-know-what named 2016, and in No Encore for the Donkey, Stanhope traces the resulting rings.

    Written and performed by Stanhope, his third memoir follows the veteran comedian on a quest to save his marriage, his wife, and eventually his wife’s life. Our hero's journey finds Stanhope cuddling with Johnny Depp in his Los Angeles mansion, receiving some much-needed TLC from Marilyn Manson, and - most daunting - building a new hour of comedy in the rusted-out hellscapes of post-industrial America.

    Equal parts love letter, road romp, and harrowing condemnation of the failures of America’s mental health care system, No Encore for the Donkey is a hilarious and heartbreaking account of a man balancing on the edge of damnation. With Bingo in a coma and Trump about to be elected, Stanhope sifts through the ruins of his own personal cataclysm in order to answer the big questions: What does it mean to love someone when you can’t love yourself? What is the point of success if you have no one to share it with? And is the end of the world BYOB?

    Incredible Read. A thesaurus was put to shame!

    This is an incredible read. A breakthrough as a author. Stanhope eloquently writes and reads this book. Honesty pours out of his heart and his words grip the soul twisting it as you listen. I am proud of Stanhope.

    Wow.

    After having a daughter who spent months in ICU, this book brought a rush of so many emotions, including the good ones that are difficult to remember years later, while keeping me on the edge of my seat. This is one of my favorite books of all time.

    Hindsight is 2016

    No one should have to endure a year like Doug did. He tells a story that can only make you want to give him a probably too long hug at the merch booth. His openness and humility is the reason we all would give our left arm to watch football at the funhouse just once. With that being said this is a story that will touch your heart and make you think of upping your Patreon monthly contribution. Don’t think do it. You can’t put a price on the content Doug provides.

    A Rare Occasion

    Out of the haze and melancholic debauchery that was 2016 for Douglas Stanhope, the coal of his soul and memory is pressured with hindsight and empathy to create a diamond of a book.

    A tale of personal failure, compassion, interconnectedness, and the failures of our health care system, this book will leave the reader with a deeper understanding of not only the Stanhope Clan - but of themselves.

    His best book yet.

    I lived 2016 with Doug...

    I'm only to chapter 10, but had to stop to review the book. I expect it to only be better from here, and I already know how it ends.

    I used to spend a lot of time depressed, drunk, in pain, in my basement, and in my own head wondering what I had worth living for. Most times Doug and his twisted, overlapping, knot filled circle of friends were my only companions. I was a podcast listener almost from the start. These were/are my only friends.

    2016 was spent climbing out of that pit. Again, with Doug at my side. I followed my only friends as they trudged through & escaped their own pits. Like them, I think I made it through stronger and wiser.

    Now reliving it all inside Doug's head brings it all back with new perspective. This book is golden. The best one yet. Doug's writing has improved immensely even if his ability to read out loud hasn't kept pace. I'm joking but he would agree.

    Doug's ability to heap praise on those he loves tells far more about his character than his brand of humor would suggest. I can't recommend this book more. Absolutely beautiful.
    Termites for life.

    Brilliant Writer

    It's a strong book, damn. He talks a lot about the breakup with Bingo and her cocain induced seizure and coma, Johnny Depps psychoc*nt of an ex-wife and the overall madness of a roadcomic. Good read!
    Only Stanhope can fill my hopeless dark void.
