CRAIG GLAZER TALKS DUSTIN 'SCREECH' DIAMOND & THE KANSAS CITY WEEKEND!!!



TKC NOTE: Our pal Craig has been stepping up his game as of late and this weekend he hosts a rather controversial guest. Check it:

Here's your chance to be ‘Saved By The Bell’
Dustin ‘Screech’ Diamond @ Stanford & Sons


Most of us grew up watching hit TV shows like ‘Full House’, ‘Empty Nest’, and, of course, ‘Saved by the Bell’. Arguably, the best known character on that series has to be Dustin Diamond, aka ‘Screech’. Even though the show went off the air in the nineties, it’s still on every week day on any one of several cable networks. The truth is Dustin grew up in a television studio.

After the show ended, Dustin was still a very young man in search of what to do next. He made appearances on other television shows and small parts in movies, but through the late nineties and early 2000’s never found an ‘anchor’ role like he had on ‘Saved by the Bell’. It was at that point that he decided to become a stand-up comic. Stanford’s was one of the first major clubs to headline him back in Westport in the late nineties. In his original shows, it was closer to a meet and greet Dustin Diamond type scenario. Dustin drew large crowds, but his stand up was in it’s infancy and the audiences were of course comparing him to other television stars who actually had something of a background in stand-up comedy. It would take several years for him to be on a level with his peers.

In the mid-2000’s we saw Dustin on several media events from ‘Celebrity Boxing’ to his two seasons on ‘Celebrity Fit Club’. In the meantime, Dustin worked much harder on his stand-up and improved dramatically. Dustin also appeared in a few higher-profile movies like ‘Dickie Roberts: Child Star’. Of course, there was always controversy around this former child star, who was still trying to find his comedy voice.

We had Dustin in a couple years ago and he really delivered a great show, reminiscent of a young George Carlin. It was the first time he brought down the house on a consistent basis since we started working with him back in the late nineties. Much like Jimmy Walker, he has accepted his household fame as a beloved character from American television. Dustin is very comfortable in his own skin today. If you come out and see his show, you will find him to be a little naughtier than you might think and he even makes fun of himself while throwing in humorous references to the show that made him famous.
There will be large crowds and plenty of ‘Saved by the Bell’ fans, it will be an adult show. I think many of you will be pleasantly surprised at the entertaining stand-up act of Dustin ‘Screech’ Diamond. Showtimes are 7:45 pm and 9:45 pm on Friday and Saturday night. Call the club at (913)400-7500 for tickets and more information.

Craig Glazer can lick my sweaty balls, and today, they are really nasty. Fuck him and his cheap ass, two bit comedy club full of loser comedians 80% of the time.

This fake hair turd sandwich is a douchebag, mysogynist living off of daddy's hard work.....the golden ghetto equivalent of living in your moms basement.

TKC holds him as some paragon of wisdom and virtue when he has neither.

But that's OK, as long as TKC eats and drinks for free at Stanford's everything will be OK. Cash flow from grant writing has been a little slow, eh T?

Rumor is that Glazer was coming out of the closet.

Reason Craig be sportin da cover alone is because H man was still on his knees when the pic was shot. (H man gonna come back to KCC n hate on folk, haters can be hatin here at will - shoulda stayed disamapeared, bitch)

This is sad. I bet that Screech dude has to wear a name tag to get recognized! In fact, I bet he could sit outside the club front door at noon tomorrow with a sign that says, "Hey, I'm SCREECH!" and people would just walk by like he's Panhandle Bill trying to raise a down payment on a cheese burger!
A young George Carlin? How bout a DEAD George Carlin? That's a better talent comparison.

Stupid Dave,
He wasent talking about people who grew up in the roaring twenties,like you

You're older than Super Dave, you buttmunch! You been around Harlinator too long. His logic is wearing off on you, telling someone younger than you they were born in the 20's. Use your brain much, Craig?

WTF? said...

"Most of us grew up watching hit TV shows like ‘Full House’, ‘Empty Nest’, and, of course, ‘Saved by the Bell’"

Craig, you were in your 30s when those programs were on. Not a rip just a matter of fact.

He was at least in late 20's He's older then me and still owes me money!!!!

‘Full House’, ‘Empty Nest’, and, of course, ‘Saved by the Bell’ was only shows allowed on prison TV and the reason Glayzer likes to cross dress today.

Stan said...

Why didn't I practice safe sex that night, by doing so would have saved humanity all this pain and suffering.

Glazer always draws out the crazies. Jeez ...

Glazing my face makes me crazy. For jizz...

My pet troll is busy this morning. Can someone teach him to play chess. He needs a new hobby. Oh wait, he wouldn't be smart enough to play chess. 1.Nc3 ...

Don't forget to go down to Westport and let the niggers rob you, like they did that out-of-town kid last night. Isn't that a great gift from our city??

Craig slime ball of the yearGlazer said...

Glazer stop promoting your lame ass Pitch article. It isnt like you made the cover of Time. Tony had an article and even another criminal midtown miscreant made the cover a few years ago over his lame ass blog. Big fucking deal. Besides nobody reads the Pitch.

Let us recount the many ways that Diamond has tried to extend his 15 minutes of fame following the demise of the Saved by the Bell franchise:

1. He produced, directed, released and starred in his own sex tape.

2. He wrote a "tell-all" book about the cast of Saved by the Bell which might have been mildly interesting if any of it were true.

3. He makes frequent appearances on the minor league pro wrestling circuit as a "manager."

4. He was such a dick on Celebrity Fit Club that he can't even get calls for any reality show any more. Not even "World's Dumbest" which still employs Tonya Harding.

Yeah, sounds like my idea of a great way to spend a beautiful summer weekend.

Glazer, you are fucking 60 you certainly didn't grow up watching saved by the bell.

Screech was clearly drunk on 98.9 could barely make any sense.

DARREN said...

I had Screech on my show Friday, very funny, nice guy. Saw his show Friday night, all the comics were good and was racy and the crowd loved him, ate it up. All these horrible comments on Screech why? He is an Icon from TV. Simple as that, the guy is funny. Why so much hate. I just don't get it. By the way, Screech didn't do Johnny Dare, he was out of town last week so we were told. The haters lie on here daily. Brother.

34 comments. 26 are haters, 5 are Glaysure, 3 are people who give half a shat at most. And no Harley as TKC commenters kicked his ass and he's retreated to KCC where he said he'd never ever go again because he and Glamazing were going to take over TKC. He said they would run off the haters. Look who's still here, look who ran like the lying pussy he is.
