Stanhope set for retirement at 44

The controversial comedian found fame with his abrasive shows in which he graphically discusses sensitive issues and shocks audiences with his outrageous take on society.

But the self-confessed libertarian is considering hanging up his microphone at the age of 44 – because he’s finally found domestic bliss with author/musician Amy Bingaman and now struggles to find enough material to fuel his angry stage routines.

Stanhope tells Britain’s Guide magazine, “I’ve got a great relationship, a nice house, great dogs. We’re strongly debating quitting. I don’t want to create things to be angry about, I’d sooner start doing happy s**t.”
