In May 2006, Doug was voted “Funniest Person in Austin” at the Capitol City Comedy Club by a panel of judges comprised of Comedy Central, “The Tonight Show,” and “Montreal Comedy Festival” representatives. In 2006, he also made it to the semi-finals of NBC’S “Last Comic Standing Season 4” and later appeared again on “Last Comic Standing Season 6” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” as well as the “South Beach Comedy Festival.” Doug, never one to rest between punch lines, has been steadfastly writing and laughing his way up the creative chain-of-command when he’s not busy eating burritos or watching “The Dark Knight.”
