CRAIG GLAZER ENDURES SNOW AND PROMOS WEEKEND GIG
TKC NOTES: A quick story from Craig Glazer about his weekend plans and an act coming to to his place despite crappy weather.
Snowbound TV Star at Stanford & Sons
Josh Wolf will be at Stanford & Sons at the Legends Shopping Center Saturday the 23rd at 7:45pm and 9:45pm. He was scheduled to work both tonight and Saturday, but due to the inclement weather, his flight will not get him here until Saturday.
Like thousands of other Kansas City businesses, Stanford & Sons took a major financial punch in the stomach with the blizzard Thursday. As you know, in our city, just say the word ‘snow’ and everyone pretty much stays indoors.
For those of you who want to get out and see one of TV’s newest and brightest stars, Josh Wolf would be that guy. Josh is one of the new breed celebrities that Stanford has helped launch. In just less than six years at Legends, Stanford’s has continued to demonstrate an uncanny knack of finding and launching new comedy stars. Other examples would be Rob Riggle; who did one of his first weekend headlining gigs here and started as a doorman at Stanford’s in Westport; TJ Miller was given his first headline week at an ‘A’ club here; and can now be seen in two TV series and tons of movies; and of course the explosive Jim Jeffries who got his first American headlining weeks here at Stanford’s and now has his own series; ‘Legit’ on FX. Maybe most unexpected was our own Nikki Glaser who started at Stanford’s in Overland Park as an open mike comic and developed into an emcee and who has since blossomed into a major headliner with her own new television series.
We first met Josh in 2007 when he was a feature act for the beautiful April Macie. He then went on to tour the country with Larry the Cable Guy and was given a huge role on season 4 of ‘My Name is Earl’ and became a regular performer, as well as writer, on ‘Chelsea Lately’. Since then he has written for and appeared on ‘Raising Hope’ and become a major player on the hit series ‘After Lately’. Though Chelsea has many comedy celebrities on both shows, Josh is considered her ‘main guy’. Somewhere in there, he found time to do one of his earliest weeks as a headliner here at Stanford & Sons to huge response.
What makes Josh stand out are his boyish good looks, his trademark ball cap on backwards and his often lightly naughty sense of humor regarding his own teenage son and where life has taken Josh over the years. Simply put, Josh Wolf exudes charisma. Clearly, Chelsea Handler agrees.
They’ve done a great job of cleaning up the streets. If you are tired of sitting at home and watching television, maybe it’s time to get out this Saturday and see a great show with Josh Wolf and co-star Roy Anthony. Hopefully, for all of us in Kansas City, the winter weather is behind us. Bring on the heat. See you at Stanford’s.
