AVN Awards Host Stanhope "Just A Fan"

CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Comedian Doug Stanhope will co-host the 2003 AVN Awards ceremony with Chloe.

“I’d rather do this than Letterman,” the LA.-based, Massachusetts-born comedian said, and it’s a help that he’s a big fan of co-host Chloe, too. “She’s hilarious; it’s gonna be fun to work with her.”

Stanhope has appeared on a passel of Comedy Central shows, as well as The Howard Stern Show. His latest concert DVD, “Word of Mouth” is on sale on his website, DougStanhope.com.

Stanhope will be given a script for the show, “but it’s just introductions – it’s up to me to make it funny,” he told AVN.com. And how does one prepare to host the biggest awards show in adult entertainment?

“Well, they (AVN) sent me a lot of the nominated tapes, but I’m an old guy and I couldn’t get through half of them,” he admits. “After about 15 minutes of Fashionistas I turned up half-dehydrated.”

Would he be willing to give Chloe some tips on her presentation?

“Only if she asks,” Stanhope says. “She’s the real performer, and I told her that.” Apparently Chloe was “a little nervous” about co-hosting the awards, according to Stanhope. “I said, ‘Listen: I just saw you on the internet taking two fists up your ass – and you’re nervous?'”

The AVN Awards will be presented January 11 in Las Vegas.
