Craig Glazer Books Back To Back Black And Brown Kansas City Comedy Weekends!!!



TKC NOTE: Right now our pal Craig offers us a look at his big plans for the next couple of weekend . . .

Comedy Weekends
Carlos Mencia & Chris Tucker

It’s not often that comedy clubs can book two monster acts back to back.

This weekend comedy sensation Carlos Mencia will be at Stanford & Sons. Mencia has been appearing regularly at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.





Carlos will go out and sprinkle shows at theaters and a very few top comedy clubs a couple times a year and we were very fortunate to get him to come back to Stanford’s. We started working with Carlos back in the mid-nineties in Westport right when he was taking off. Mencia is best known for replacing Dave Chappelle on Comedy Central with his own series, ‘The Mind of Mencia’. Carlos has appeared in several motion pictures including ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ in which he co-starred with Ben Stiller. He has endless other credits from appearances on late night talk shows to his own comedy specials on HBO and Showtime. If you are a Mencia fan you might have seen his gala performance at the Midland a few years ago.

Currently Mencia has a TV project in the works in which he will go travel from city to city and show you what’s up in that town through the eyes and mind of Carlos Mencia. There will be one HBO special and a live performance with the Latin Kings of Comedy which will star Paul Rodriguez, George Lopez, Gabriel Iglesias and Carlos Mencia.



CHRIS TUCKER, MOVIE AND COMEDY SUPERSTAR!!!! Tucker has picked a handful of clubs mostly in the south to work on his new HBO special. We were honored to be one of those locations. It goes without saying that seeing Chris Tucker, who just a few years ago was among the top paid performers in Hollywood, at an intimate venue is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Tucker, of course, is best known for his smash-hit ‘Rush Hour’ franchise with Jackie Chan. Chris came into prominence when he played the beloved character ‘Smokey’ in the ‘Fridays’ movies. Tucker also co-starred with Bruce Willis in ‘The Fifth Element’. Plans are in place to do both a final ‘Rush Hour’ film and a final ‘Friday’ movie featuring Chris as well as Mike Epps and Ice Cube as well as Katt Williams called ‘Final Friday’.

Carlos Mencia Friday and Saturday (4/11 & 4/12) with shows at 7:45 pm and 9:45 pm nightly. Chris Tucker will appear Thursday August 17th at 8pm and Friday and Saturday (4/18 & 4/19) at 7:45 pm and 9:45 pm. Call (913)400-7500 or go on-line at stanfordscomedyclub.com to get your tickets.

This is old news done seen it all at KCC two days ago where every one gave Craig shit there about it. Here it is now at TKC where people will once again comment about how both performers suck.

Billy, Topeka Ks said...

Only an idiot would book what he thinks is a big name comedy show on a family holiday weekend. Next week asshole be on here or at KCC bitching how the Easter Bunny was more important than going to his KCK dumpsite.
But what do you expect from an asshole who makes a statement like this, "Mencia is one of the top ten maybe of all time."

Hey guess who the Kansas City Improv has this weekend? This guy is one funny dude and writes his own stuff. Ever since Chicago native Aries Spears was 14 years old, he has been a force to be reckoned with in the comedy scene throughout America. His quick wit, charisma and ferociously aggressive style of comedy have earned him critical acclaim, high accolades, and above all, a busy schedule. From being a regular on Fox’s Mad TV, starring in feature films, appearing on a number of national talk shows, and continually touring the country with his stand-up, Aries’s talents are becoming recognized and appreciated throughout the entertainment industry.

As a principal cast member on Fox’s hit sketch comedy show Mad TV, Aries brought a fresh, hip style to the already-edgy program from the third through the tenth season. The producers made full use of many of Aries’s talents by calling on him frequently to create new hilarious characters and write sketches. Some of the many recurring characters that Aries is famous for on the show include: Belma Buttons, Bill Cosby, Jesse Jackson, Mike Tyson, Walter (Crackheads), Reggie (Erascist), Dollar Bill Montgomery, Shaquille O''Neal, The Klumps, Michael Jackson, Sisqo, Evander Holyfield, El Diablo Negro and more. Aries also boasts a number of uproarious impersonations on the show that include James Brown, Al Pacino, and his childhood idol Eddie Murphy. The Aries-branded sketch “Talkin’ American” was Mad TV’s most popular bit, keeping fans tuned in and boosting Mad’s ratings impressively on Saturday night.
4/25 to 4/27 Shawn & Marlon Wayans will be there and that is what will be a funny show.

Craig thank you for bringing our city the best comedy talent out there. Some of us who are not crazy haters appreciate the effort. Tucker is a big thing in a club. I love his films.

KCK EPA officials express concern about the high methane levels at the comedy show last nite.

They attributed this to the "Burrito fart pollution" resulting from the Mexican audience members inside the cramped dive bar comedy club.

@2:30 if you are so forth coming with your desire to suck cock contact me and I will set it up so you can make some real money doing it other than slurping a dive dump comedy club.

Knows Poo When They See It said...

Glazer does not bring jack squat to Kansas City. This is all done through booking agents. The booking agents send out notices of who might be available and when or dipshit Glazer contacts them and says hey I want this person and then they see if they can do a deal. He doesn't just out of the blue call these people and bring them to Kansas City in a few weeks. He already knows 90% of the time months in advance who is coming. Here is a good example of one booking agent type business.
http://www.headlineentertainment.us/celebrity-comedians.html

And another.
http://www.comedianbookings.com/

A talent agent, or booking agent, is a person who finds jobs for actors, authors, film directors, musicians, models, film producers, professional athletes, writers, screenwriters, broadcast journalists, and other people in various entertainment or broadcast businesses. In addition, an agent defends, supports and promotes the interest of his/her clients. Talent agencies specialize, either by creating departments within the agency or developing entire agencies that primarily or wholly represent one specialty. For example, there are modeling agencies, commercial talent agencies, literary agencies, voice-over agencies, broadcast journalist agencies, sports agencies, music agencies and many more.

No Glazer is way at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to who does and does not come to Kansas City. Now a comedian might want to come to KC if his career is so in the toilet and has nothing else to do in a matter of weeks but that is only because, yup you guessed it nobody else or better wants them.

....GLAZEAMAZING....


Westport Trucky said...

Yes GLAZEAMAZING he has lived this long after all the snitching and back stabbing not to mention people he has ripped off.

Fu*K you losers.
You couldn't runa lemonade stand.
running a comedy club is tough.
You compete with every entertainment opion out there from the sports to movies to
bowling to drinking to concerts
to parties etc..
so stop thinking its not a huge
gamble on glaze's part to
book this talent.
Its very tough. He can't afford
the top top names in comedy.
Can't make money doing it.
So he sometimes gets a big name
like tucker or mencia...other
weeks has to fill the place with
up and comers.
no different than a bar or
nightclub....
so for the loser tkc crowd who
don't understand the nervous guts
it takes to run an operatin like
a comedy shop...go f*** yourself.
The glaze has done a great job..
survived in the recession when
others didn't. Probably has a
pretty good ear for talent in the
comedy business...and hopefully
is successful.
so stfu you losers who never
tried to do something.
sit on your couach watching
pawn stars and wishing your life
was better than working for
$10 an hour.
glad glaze had a full house this
weekend...how can any loser hope
that a hard working guy like glaze
and his brother fail....its just
plain f*cking stupid.
Glaze proves these losers wrong
every week.
now gto back to your holes you
penny ante haters!!!!!!

Reality coming for ya Harley ..its coming..get ready.

I live in reality 12:53. Been doing it for many many years.
But I don't understand the hate
that pervades.
My writings are usually pretty
simple and fast. Iknow many
people in this city...have worked
with government (both civil and
criminal) and private business.
worked sincei was 9. Understand
hard wrok.
But what makes a person tick
to try to damage the name and
reputation of a guy like glaze?
The reality is that some of the
people on these sites have
1 goal...to destroy others.
When Wilsons family was literally ravaged by some of the worst
comments...I stood up for the
guy. Beyond civil.
When guys attack a mans business
that he'sput his world into
that's hate beyond civil.
I write the truth. I receive many
emails from people saying that
the civility of people is beyond
discourse...its outright hate.
Inmy posts I can argue...debate..
discuss issues and use facts
data and throw some fun jabs
julst like others throw at me.
We discuss ...we throw a few
funny lines...but most of all this
is just fun and entertainment.
Don't threaten me 12:53...you
won't win...its that simple.
I never lose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thanks for the mention...but
be careful....I go very deep with
the "right people" in this city.
I get attacked...I laugh...I
write back.
But the continuous vile language
and attacks are just too much
to let idly go by.
good luck 12:53...anxiously
await you. but you will lose.
thanks...laugh...but don't
mess with guys like Wilson/glaze
/hearne...or me....

3:39 Go back to KCC you crazy fuck. Glazer is a rat fink and nothing anybody says or does will ever change that.

Shrub said...

3:39, what part of go fuck yourself do you NOT understand ?

Anonymous said...

Wilson and Glazer have nobody but themselves to answer to about their issues. Glazer created his all by his own hand. Lots of places in this town bring in top name entertainment. You don't see them hawking all over town about how great they are. So Fuck You Harley and get the fuck back to KCC.

Westport Trucky said...

When you're just a average Joe in Kansas City and you start acting like you're so all that much better than anyone else you're going to catch hell from a lot of people. And when you thrust it in peoples faces every time they turn around you're just asking to be crucified in some manner. So I say if you don't want people calling you on your bullshit then keep quite about it in the first place.

Anonymous said...

I just took a Glazer and I'll be damned if it didn't look like Harley

Anonymous said...

Glazer is far from 'an average Joe', he is film producer with some good credits, has a book about his life, is in our media almost daily, runs a nationally known comedy club. Give the guy some credit. Hey I hear him on radio, darn funny guy. Just sayin.

Oh I read some comment about they get acts from agents. No kidding. There are two hundred or so comedy clubs in the country I would guess. Four have Chris Tucker. Go figure.

Anonymous said...

9:03 you are correct 'an average Joe' does not snitch, steal and leave his "friends" to die. His book is a flop, absolute fiction. He is a 60 year old wanna be that if he had any relevancy would be somewhere other then the outskirts of KCKS. Wipe off your chin, you got some glaze goo on it.

Anonymous said...

Harley, guess what? Reality is STILL coming for ya,boy ..get prepared ..loser




Anonymous said...

9:03 better recheck your facts on Tucker because your wrong stupid.
And Glazer is over rated so deal with it. There are many people in KC listed on many more movies than Glazer has ever done or bought so he could add his name to, and they not snitched a person one in their life.

Anonymous said...

9:03 was you born that stupid or at some point did your mom drop you on your head? What ever it was you're sure clueless how things work.

Anonymous said...

What movie has Glazer ever done or bought? Why doesn't he produce, star and distribute his story? Nobody wants his story, he has been peddling that for years. They laugh!

Anonymous said...

Oh he bought some cheap ass terrible boxing shit that nobody else wanted and now that he owns them they are the greatest ever. And he has added his name to them all trying to act like a real sports player in short another one of his scams.

Anonymous said...

I know about boxing in this town and Glazer is not part of it.

Anonymous said...

Hahahahaha Glazer is a fucking joke. My truck is worth more then that POS car he drives. Grow up and man up Glazer!

Westport Trucky said...

LOLZ I so love reading this,

I have read this book at the urging of the author and to make matters worse see or hear about this author everyday.

This book is a sham and total lie for the most part. If people knew more about Craig Glazer they would never buy this book. I know I didn't

Many great authors out there who will give you great reading I recommend you buy those books instead.

Good job Super Dave, you the man and that's something Glazer isn't.

We all know WT is "super dave",or I know. Have known all along ..lol "stupid truck"

Went to see Carlos Mencia. He got a standing ovation, the show was sold out. Seems like a very nice place to me. What up?

Anonymous said...

Know Glazer, like the guy. Good cat. I detect some jealous people here. I saw one of his sports films on Ali on tv, very good. His club is the shit. Guess with success comes hate for everyone these days.
