Stanhope's new release Before Turning the Gun on Himself--his tenth album and his second CD/DVD set for Roadrunner Comedy--offers a potent double dose of the abrasive, brutally honest brand of standup comedy that's established him as a one-of-a-kind phenomenon. "For a guy whose last name ends in `hope,' he seems to have little for much of anything...he exudes an insightfully vulgar mix of bleakness, anger and despair - much of it laugh-out-loud funny, some of it wince-inducing, all of it genuine-sounding," said The Chicago Sun-Times.

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
