Craig Glazer Wishes Best To Ailing Comedy Legend David Brenner



TKC Note: Kansas City Comedy Club impresario Craig Glazer laments a tragic situation regarding a comedy legend David Brenner . . .

David Brenner Of Tonight Show Fame In Coma

A good pal of mine and a man who stood up for me in 2001 and wrote the judge to try and protect me in that federal case, David Brenner will be gone at weeks end. David has cancer, fast acting, in a coma and will not recover. So sad. What a great comic and entertainer. He hosted the Tonight Show for Johnny more than anyone else. Such a charming, kind person. I am very sad about it. Jimmie Walker emailed me last night about it, they are best friends. This morning he said no hope. Damn.

Sorry to hear this news.

Ran into him often in Philadelphia, wouldn't know me from scat but always had time to talk.

Remembering his classic line as a youth on the tough streets of Philadelphia, Now what do we have to do to solve this situation.

He would say this when Satan's Disciples were getting ready to rumble with another gang.

Funny, funny man.

How soon before Craig completely takes over this blog? Between him and Alonzo TKC is getting mighty lazy.

Makes me think about all those performances on the Carson Show

two helpful, little known answers for the "Dead..or Alive?" celeb trivia game

Jimmie Walker - alive.

David Brenner - dead.

Too bad about Brenner.

But notice how Glazer, once again, under the guise of reporting on someone else, turns the story into a sel-centered post about himself!

"stood up for ME in 2001 and wrote the judge to try to protect ME"

"Jimmie Walker emailed ME"

Some people are just so wrapped up in ME ME ME!!!!

He sure thinks a lot of himself.

And was guilty as hell in his Fed case.

The guy writes about his sick and dying friend and you attack him? What a bunch of assholes you all are. Sure he tells you why they are friends, that makes sense, otherwise the SAME LOSER ASSHOLES WOULD WRITE, 'YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW THE GUY SO WHY DO YOU CARE' Glazer can't win even if he is trying to be a nice person. Which guess what he is, you aren't. Sorry to hear about your friend Craig and a national treasure in the comedy world, David Brenner.

2:30, so true.

Not a fan nor a hater of CG.

Why do we care 2:30 ? Peoples friends and family die everyday. Should I care because it's Glazers pal? Fuck Glazer, he's a rat.
Sorry about Brenner, but he is far from a national treasure.

As I don't have a "dog" in the fight, so to speak. It certainly does seem like Mr. Glazer tends to make the story about himself and he seems to be front and center on TKC, almost daily.

As for David Brenner, I didn't know him, he didn't write anyone on my behalf. Nakita did growl at me about someone last night. Brenner seemed to be very white and I like that. That's about it from the zoo.

Brenner was a distant 5th in guest hosts....Just shows how glazer twists facts said...

Joey Bishop (177 times), Joan Rivers (93 times),
Bob Newhart (87 times), John Davidson (87 times),
David Brenner (70 times), McLean Stevenson (58 times),
Jerry Lewis (52 times), and David Letterman (51 times).
Joan Rivers was the "permanent" (and only) guest host
from September 1983 until 1986. The Tonight Show
reverted to various guest hosts after Joan left, with
Jay Leno the most frequent

My gosh Craig gives us the scoop on a national name entertainer who is dying. Says nice things about him and you jump his ass. Unreal. Shows how sick comments on the websites are most of the time as Tony pointed out. By the way I have known the Glazer's my entire life, Craig Glazer never gave up, oh sorry ratted on anyone. He stood trials and was always the man on the hot seat. He's a brave stand up person. Brenner was a very decent man. Shame on you for putting all this down. So now he was 5th on the list, man you need help hateful one.

Enjoyed Brenner sorry your friend is in such bad shape Craig. All the best.

You are full of shit. Glazer set people up while he was doing all the dope he could. He is a phony asshole that has screwed anybody he could.
He only cares about one jackass and thats the snitch in the mirror. His day is coming!

5:19 SCORES with the facts! SWISH! NOTHING BUT NET!!!!

Shug said...

Here is a quote from Glazer on KCC. Listen to this line of horseshit:

"I get much press and attention and somehow that leads to all this noise. Over 50 years the KC Star made me the most written about private citizen in our city. EVER."
Craig Glazer on KCC.

And people wonder why other hate on this bitch.

Westport Trucky said...

But Shug, if you type Craig's name in the Stars search engine you only get like two or three hits.

Shug said...

Yeah Trucky I had him figured to be a self promoting asshole. Everything he says makes me comfortable in my belief. I guess he thinks he's is big shit here. That say a lot. Big shit in the Hell Hole of the Plains. I know several guys like him that own a cheap ass joint and pull pussy off it and think they are somebody. He's just another turd to me.

Westport Trucky said...

I agree

He'd fuck u up

KC Star/Jeff said...

Craig Glazer has had more than 700 stories in our paper since 1960's he is the most written about Kansas City person ever. That is a fact. Of course this doesn't count sports page players or political figures. As a private citizen. His Vern Miller case had more than 100 stories alone in the 70's. The 90's were film, Stanfords, lawsuits,and his private life. Hearne had more than 150 stories on Glazer from 93-2007 alone.

Anonymous said...

Oh shut the fuck up Jeff the
liar. First off Jeff the liar in the 60's Craig was still hiding behind his mommies skirt and outside of maybe 50 people nobody knew he existed and 40 of those wish they didn't either.

He isn't the most wrote about person in the papers here in KC. My great grandpa was you flaming fag. So figure out who I am since I just gave you one huge ass clue.

Mike/OP Police said...

I am related to Craig and the Glazers. Craig Glazer was a Special Agent employed by the Kansas Attorney General's office in 1974. He was a law enforcement officer. His records show he never gave up anyone ever. It's on file. Not in LA or KC. If you want to call him a snitch cause he was a cop so be it, but then I guess we all are that right? Those of you who want to say that know it isn't true. Craig went through three criminal cases in three decades. One when he was a cop, one in LA a federal case and the last one in KC a federal case. If you stand trial you aren't giving anyone up.

LOL, Al Capone has that number beat so what. Glazer was a crook plain and simple.

Funny all these people who defend Glazer have names, those who call him names are hiding behind phony ones. Odd. Me too.

Hey Mike you badge number?

Just what I thought loser. Sure Chief Douglass will have a fit when he see's this shit, as I will make sure he does.

Way to go Tony printing this shit from Glazer. I hope when your Mom is on her sick bed that someone disrespects your family like this by giving out information with out your permission or knowledge.

Is 9:40 saying his great grandad was Tom pendergast?

Here's David Brenner's act:

"Oy, I'm a Jew! This is so crazy! People are so crazy!"

You know, if Glazer really was the most written about private citizen in the history of the KC Star, he wouldn't have to tell people he was.

Westport Trucky said...

If you have to explain to someone you're famous, then you're technically not that famous.

David Passed away several hours ago. Rest in peace David.

Richard said...

What in the hell is with a comment like "jew boy" ? Really disturbing. Nobody else was upset by a commenter attacking CG by calling him that?
Scary shit in 2014.

David is dead and they contact nobody Craig Glazer in Kansas City to tell him? I pity people in KC. FYI he isn't what he would like for you to believe he is.

Not a fucking wire service not anything has this up yet. But a nobody in Kansas City is claiming this to be true.

David has the record for appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) for 158 appearances not including guest hosting.

Anonymous said...

Lay off the jews 7:42.


This is death we are taking about. Death from cancer. I don't know who this old guy is. I never watched this guy on stage. Johnny Carson was off the air before my time. I don't need to know anything about this dude, or the self-promoting glazer to know this isn't anything to joke around about.


the Polar Bear-son said...

I like to give Glazer shit because he is a pompus fucking asshole. With that said, David Brenner did die today of cancer. RIP. Also, Brenner was on the couch 158 times plus his hosting visits, making him number 1 in TOTAL appearances on the Tonight Show.

I'm sure Glazer will be along to tell us that he discovered Brenner and Brenner was talking about Sanfords when he passed. But what do you expect from a pompus asshole like Glazer. Nothing here.

CG said...

David Brenner passed today actually. It is now on news wites all over. The family didn't want to talk about it til after he was gone. He left with a couple jokes "leave 100 bucks in my sock, just in case I need to tip up there"....

I see some nice comments and the usual haters who really need to learn from this that they are the liars and jerks not me. I was informed about David before it was in the news cause I am a friend of his and his friends like Jimmie Walker and Richard Lewis, they contacted me. As you see here the usual name callers again saying I made this up. Why would I do something like that. These are the guys who call me names and a rat...my balls are bigger than most anyones you know haters. There is nothing I can do about them but laugh at how small they are. YOU DON'T HAVE TO ACT SO BIG YOU AREN'T THAT SMALL..well that might not apply to them.

When they are shown up like this sad event. It means nothing, they continue to make things up. Nature of a jealous hater. Again in MY LIFE NOT ONE OF THESE COWARDS HAS EVER FACED ME. EVER. EVER. AND THEY NEVER WILL. THEY ARE TOO AFRAID. End of this story. Bless you David.

Jeff Spero/OP said...

Now that was on point Craig. Agree with you 1 billion times over.

Fuck you Glazer your still a rat snitch fucking liar who jumped the gun on the David's death trying to act important. You piece of shit was saying he died before he actually did. As well you lied about other facts so face it your a loser who can't even tell the truth about people you claim are friends. I'd tell you to your face but then you would want to fight and I would fucking stomp you in the ground and make you the laughing stock of KC, You Tube and all who know you and of you. Stan would hang his head in shame.

That's a joke, CG. Don't stand out in the cold again. ;-)

I liked Brennan I remember watching him on The Comedy Channel before it became comedy central. Never had a chance to see him in KC though.

CJ/ Westport said...

Craig thank you for the Brenner story. Yes its too bad you have a couple hooligans who won't let go. Trust me 99% of this city that knows you believes you and don't give any credit to a few haters. We laugh at them. This current story is more proof of them being idiots. As for facing you, no kidding. We know they never would.
