In an interview for the latest episode of the porn industry podcast 2Men1Podcast (www.2men1podcast.com), comedian Doug Stanhope pulls no punches in expressing his opinion of Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis.
Years ago, Stanhope did a brief stint as the “MC” in an early edition of the Girls Gone Wild video series. When asked by 2Men1Podcast hosts Q Boyer and Don G about his work for Francis and GGW, Stanhope landed a gut-punch of a response, packed with his trademark acerbic wit and brash style.
“The only fascination that man (Francis) has is with himself,” said Stanhope in one of his milder comments on Francis. “(He is) the most awful human being I've ever met in all my time in the entertainment business. From being in the entertainment business to just enjoying entertainment in a spank booth, he is the grossest human being I've ever run across.”
Stanhope didn't stop there, and continued to riff on Francis relentlessly, in between speaking about his love for obscure porn niches and offering his breakdown of the state of stand-up comedy and the state of the union
“We knew that having Stanhope on the show would produce some interesting sparks and solid entertainment for our listeners,” said Q Boyer, co-host of 2Men1Podcast and marketing coordinator for adult entertainment studio Pink Visual (www.pinkvisual.com). “What we didn't know was that asking him about Girls Gone Wild would lead to one of the funniest and most ruthless bits of impromptu character assassination I've heard in a long, long time.”
Since 2Men1Podcast premiered in July 2009, the porn-centric entertainment and news show has continued to deliver compelling guest interviews, including Stanhope, alt porn icon Joanna Angel and Paul Bellini, a gay porn producer and long-time “Kids in the Hall” collaborator.
“Having Stanhope on the show was our equivalent of giving our listeners a shiny nugget of fried gold as a precursor to the holiday season,” said Don G, co-host of 2Men1Podcast. “After Doug got done with him, I can honestly say that I felt a bit sorry for Francis, which I had previously thought to be impossible.”
