WTF: Doug Stanhope

Marc Maron's WTF Podcast just passed 200 episodes (the 200th episode in which Mike Birbiglia interviews Maron is a must-listen, BTW) and in honor of his escalating success, I'll be featuring a video of each guest who appears on the show right here, starting right now.

Today's guest is Doug Stanhope, who's the kind of comedian who never performs stand-up without a cigarette in his mouth, a beer in his hand, or both. It should be an interesting conversation with 12-years-sober Marc Maron. In this clip from his 2007 stand-up DVD No Refunds Stanhope talks about how hard it is for him to fall asleep sober.
