CRAIG TALKS BOBCAT IN KANSAS CITY



TKC NOTE: Here's a bit of comedy history and Kansas City preview from our pal Craig Glazer . . .

Bobcat Goldthwait is Solid Gold

Bobcat Goldthwait is still best known by most Americans for his starring roles in Police Academy:2, 3 and 4. Many other fans also know him from his hit Christmas picture ‘Scrooged’ with Bill Murray or ‘Burglar’ with Whoopi Goldberg. The younger generation enjoyed his memorable scene in the movie ‘Blow’ with Johnny Depp and Paul Reubens, featuring the classic line ‘I can’t feel my face’ after he snorted a mountain of white powder. What Bobcat has become well-known and financially rewarded for is his skills as a director in both television and film.

Bobcat moved into the director’s chair shortly after his stint on the Fox hit television show ‘Unhappily Ever After’. Goldthwait became nationally known as the man who was dating the show’s star, the beautiful Nikki Cox. Bobcat began directing The Man Show with Jimmy Kimmel and went on to direct the Jimmy Kimmel show for 3 years. He then decided to become a film director.

Goldthwait teamed up with long time best friend Robin Williams to do ‘World’s Greatest Dad’, in 2012 he had the highly acclaimed mini-hit with ‘God Bless America’. This May you will see his much awaited first horror picture ‘Willow Creek’. His new movie is a cross between ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘The Legend of Boggy Creek’. Word is it is well done and scary.

Goldthwait has been doing stand-up comedy for nearly 3 decades. Bobcat got his first break from Louie CK when he invited him to be on his first HBO series. Later, Goldthwait grabbed national headlines when he set Jay Leno’s couch on fire on the Tonight Show. Needless to say, Jay was less than happy. Ironically, later on, Goldthwait would direct several episodes of various series for NBC.

If you haven’t seen Bobcat’s stand-up, I promise you will be impressed. It’s a cross between Bill Hicks and George Carlin. Bobcat has a very realistic take on social media and people who depend upon it. Not only funny, but worth hearing about. Bobcat doesn’t hesitate to make fun of himself, his lengthy career in television and the movies and his love life.

Bobcat is doing at least one or more feature films a year so he spends much of his time at film festivals such as Cannes, Sundance, Montreal and an upcoming film festival in Cancun, Mexico. It’s a rough life.

His first love is stand-up comedy which he has less time for these days, only doing one or two appearances a month nationally. It keeps his juices flowing and the ideas coming for new pictures. See him tonight or tomorrow at 7:45 pm or 9:45 pm at Stanford & Sons at the Legends. Call (913)400-7500 or visit stanfordscomedyclub.com for tickets and more information. Ladies, don’t forget, next Thursday night at 8 pm, The Chippendales straight out of Las Vegas.

If this guy is so great, why isn't he at a better venue than Stanford & Sons?

Steve Kramer said...

steve: have you not learned that these low lifes love giving glaze the b.s. It's the same old bag of crap these losers pour on glaze. Forget all those names...most of the losers who continue to tear glaze down probably don't even know whothosepeople are.
save yourbreath and time. The 3 or 4 trick bag idiots who constantly try to cut down stanfords are the worst kind ofpeople ...jealous losers. Its good you give them the truth...but it ain't gonna change what the truth is.
that glaze has some really good talent at his place. He's helped introduce some incredible names to this town. But its still not good enough for the rag tag Midwest low lifes that frequent this blog. Hope glaze has a full house...and how about putting up a pic of that full house so the dogs on here can see that stanfords does bring in some exceptional talent. Saw bob on tv...he's hilarious...just tonigte we've got other plans.
the losers will be posting at midnite tonight because they aint got a life or any social gravitas besides sitting on the lazy boy watching reruns of PawnStar.

Breaking TKC News exclusive that Tony wouldn't know shit about ...... said...

Nobody cares about Glazer or anything associated with him. With that said here is some tragic news.

Breaking News just in: at approximately 2:15 pm today the Polar Bear was mortally wounded by a band of scavenger negros while golfing with freinds at Swoope Park Golf Links.

After the attack on the Polar Bear the negros were seen at the Aldi on Troost collecting their bounty from someone that looked a lot like Alonzo. He was with a rotund Mexican hipster looking guy drinking coffee, wearing a beanie, in a dark colored sedan.

When wheeled into the emergency room, the Polar Bear did not look good. His condition was listed as grave. The Polar Bear ask his son, Son of Polar Bear, to carry on his tradition of "calling a spade a spade" in his absence.

Security was heavy around the hospital as several of the bears associates were quite upset and were seen with automatic weapons and grenade launchers. Word on the street was they are looking for revenge and headed for the Troost Aldi.

More news at 10 pm.

I was the general manager of Stanfords in the 80's into the early 90's. I left and opened four of my own comedy clubs. I have to say this for my old haunt. NOTHING YOUR CITY HAS OR HAS EVER HAD COMPARES TO THE FAME AND NATIONAL ATTENTION THAT STANFORD AND SONS HAS AND HAS HAD. NOTHING IS CLOSE, NOTHING. Only your sports teams get the attention Stanford and Sons gets, The Tonight Show, Letterman, Carson, Leno, Louie CK's tv show, HBO, Chelsea spent two minutes on Stanfords this past week. AGAIN NOTHING IN ENTERTAINMENT IN YOUR CITIES HISTORY IS A CLOSE SECOND NOTHING. So when you down Stanfords you down KC. That's a fact. God you hateful people are all clueless assholes. You are jealous of Craig so put down a 40 year old city treasure. Know what that guy you hate built that legend. At least he's got one and I respect the hell out of him. What the damn have you ever done to put your city on the map? Nothing right, just bitch. I"m glad I left.

Bobcat is a good filmmaker. I am curious to see if he has adapted his standup.

Man what a bunch of losers pumping up the Glazer here this evening. Kramer you must love sucking cum like you do from Craig since you do it all the time. Guess thats why Yelp gives it a 2,5 rating because it's such a great place. The Uptown Theater has had more stars than the Glazer dump. Hell Kemper Arena has had more stars than the dump. So grow up boys and stop trying to blow smoke up our asses.

Carl, of Westwood, Calif. said...

Just because they trade blows with Glazer doesn't make him a stand up guy. He is a self absorbed ass wipe. Only reason he is on TKC is for some free advertising. You know he talks shit about Tony behind his back. Typcial Glazer. Rodent rug wearing name dropper. Women find him repulsive.

Goofball Paul said...

DOn't tell anybody that Hernia bangs my wife while I stand in a corner and masturbate.

Shell sings about it so sweetly later on.

Joel/Fairway said...

Lord what a bunch of jealous dirt bags. Glazer has tossed off more hot girls than you low lifes have ever even met. Hearne is a multi millionaire who's wife I'm sure is more than loyal. Stanfords you compare to what concert halls that discovered nobody and are known nowhere, The Uptown? Midland? Come on now rented halls. Star Light is the only other special place in this cowtown. Haters you got to get lives. Stop dreaming of being a 'Craig Glazer.'

Craig Glazer isn't worthy of a god damn thing, he is a rat fink and a snitch. Always has been, always will be. He didn't discover a fucking thing. Comedy Clubs been around all over the world for years and all these so call finds have played there as well. Bobcat has just proved he has no life.

Anonymous said...

woohoo-- let's all drive out to a western Wyandotte county outlet mall to see a washed-up geezer with a screechy voice!!

Or, go to hang at the P7L next Saturday, then catch Jim Jefferies at Midland..

note -- catch his Legit on FXX - over the top!!

Joel/Fairway, your a stupid fucking moron. Go suck Glazer without his rug, take pics and then fuck yourself. We don't care for you lies.

Jim Jefferies was introduced to the midwest by Stanfords what five times in four years. My pal went when he first came and nobody knew who he was bout three years ago, at STANFORDS. End of that story pukes.

Wait a moment folks. Bobcat is what? A has been? Maybe you missed it, He directs multi million dollar movies. They do well. He is wealthy and maybe you didn't read his long list of credits. I did. I used to play football here, guess I'm washed up too. I'm going to see Bobcat tomorrow night.

I have never met Craig Glazer and not ever been to the comedy places. I grew up hearing about him from my dad and uncles off and on. So I can say I know of several people who dislike Craig and his dad very much. So saying just three or four people hate Craig is to me people not being able to deal with reality.

Talent Scout said...

Stanfords is where they go before they are somebody or after they were somebody. If they are worth a crap they go and make real money in Vegas.

Anonymous said...

Exactly, Scout. I'll give Glazer's daddy credit for starting the thing when he did, but every city of any size has a comedy club, and has had one of decades.

And they can all lay claim to "discovering" the exact same comics who rode the circuit from town to town before they made it big.

Larry Marks/OK said...

I'll say it again, Stanford and Sons is the ONLY venue of note your city has EVER HAD. Ever. There is no other place like it. Freedom Palace, a bit, Star Light in another way. That's it. You have a nationally known venue in Stanford and Sons and that's it KC. A fact. I have never heard Carson, Leno, Letterman, Kimmel, Handler, and so on mention another venue you have, ever!!! So accept it. Stanford and Sons is all you got.

Ricky Ricter said...

12:17 "Helpful" and just why would so many people "hate" Craig? Why? Who in KC did this man wrong? I've lived here 47 years. We have all pissed off someone in our lives. I have known of Craig Glazer and Jeff Glazer and even Jack Glazer. When they were teenagers they were wild, yes they were. Craig is maybe our cities most famous local name outside sports. His outlaw days weren't too much here, he was a law person, as we all know never had to give up anyone or we'd have heard who and why, was in prison. The family's comedy places are known nationally and are respected highly. So I just never got this hate thing.

I was their neighbor for many years on 95th and Nall. I like them, many did and do. The remarks I see on this site often are either made up or just plain based on nothing but make believe hate or envy. I don't get it?

Bill Maas I banged your ex and I had to be real drunk to do it.

Anonymous said...

Rick just because you're a blind idiot does not mean the rest of us all are. The Glazers with Craig and Stan the top two have shit on many people in this town. Fucked many people out of money. Craig is famous because he was a convict nothing else. Have you ever noticed that people are not standing in line to steal Craig from the club to work for them? Trust me he don't make all that great a salary working there I have seen the books and know a lot. Outside of people in Kansas City for the most part he is a nobody and many wish he would go away and shut up, they are sick of his in your face I am famous shit. He does not deal one on one with these acts he brings into KC they have to go through a booking agent who puts the dates together and then presents to the Glazers. Sure the night time show hosts mention Stanford's along with many other comedy places as they intro the comedian who is coming on the show next. They all do this because it's on the card for what these people are about to do. But these same hosts mention many places as well such as the Sprint Center, use to mention the Kemper and other spots in KC. As many times as they mention Stanford's they are mentioning the Improv Comedy Club also which has better ratings than Stanford's.

You rock on Craigie


That must be Craigs current gay boyfriend from Missie B's.

Ricky Ricter said...

CRAIG owns the club moron. He is oh yeah also a working film maker with six films and doing one now. Hello.Still you have named nobody he screwed over, not one name. No issue. Craig and Jeff have good biz reps in KC. Somebody built a 3 million dollar comedy club for them. Whoever you are your jealous hate exceeds reality.

Anonymous said...

comedy clubs "discover" talent about as much as a class D minor league baseball clubs "discover" baseball stars.

Players have to work their way up thru the ranks..and have to start somewhere..whether Toledo or Oshkosh or wherever.

if they're good - they'll get to the bigs.. no matter what club "discovered" them.

Every single comic who has the talent to have "made it" would have done so even if a "Stanfords" in KC or a "Goobers" in East Bumfuck never existed. They all work the circuit, and try to advance.

I don't see where anyone said they hated him, but it do appear many don't worship him as some of you fools do.
