Comedian Doug Stanhope, whose latest CD/DVD, Oslo: Burning the Bridge to Nowhere, was released May 3, is featured on the cover of this week's Montreal Mirror, promoting his July 7 appearance at the comedy club Katacombs. Writer Johnson Cummins conducts a lengthy conversation with Stanhope, getting him to address a variety of subjects, including his practice of staying at arm's length from the comedy mainstream, his habit of drinking his way through sets, and more.

Stanhope describes himself as "not the kind of guy you would hire to entertain during your 50th wedding anniversary or your bachelorette party," and says, "There is nothing I love more than idiots getting upset, because then I get to ruin their night."
