At 43 years of age, comedian Doug Stanhope is clearly part of "Generation X." However, he thinks the newer kids - or "Millennials" - are pretty boring. "The older generations always complain how the newer ones are more deviant, but I'll be the first one to complain the other way," he notes. "I mean, we used to do crank off topless dancers and shit. But these kids? The closest they've gotten to a fistfight is on a message board. It's like, 'You lookin' at my girl? I'm gonna delete you from my Facebook! You've got some 'blocked user' messages in your future!'" Known for his crass, vitriolic and depraved - but hilarious - observations (often delivered while smoking and drinking onstage), Stanhope's humor is not for the faint of heart. And you better see him while you can, as he's planning to wrap up his career with an "End of the World" concert on December 20, 2012 - the last date on the Mayan calendar. 8 p.m. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $20.
