Craig's Kansas City Comedy Weekend
Quick note from our pal Craig about his weekend plans . . .
Hot Summer Nitghts With Kevin Farley At Stanfords
We all remember the famous Belushi Brothers. First we went nuts over John Belushi who took us by storm on Saturday Night Live. John went on to be a big time movie star in films like Animal House and Neighbors. Maybe his best work was Blues Brothers. Sadly John had a major drug alcohol problem and his life ended way too early. John's brother, Jim Belushi began gaining our attention early on in movies like 'Thief' with James Caan. After many hit pictures including Red Heat with Arnold and K-9, Jim soon became a household name. His anchor role was the long running television series, 'According To Jim.'
It seems this story redid itself in the past couple decades with the Farley Brothers. Chris Farley, like John Belushi, became the actor to watch on Saturday Night Live, then on the big screen with movies like Tommy Boy. Chris fell victim to drugs and booze as well dying very early in his huge career. Enter his younger brother Kevin Farley. The two look very much alike and Kevin was old enough to try and help his brother Chris get help back in the day. It didn't work.
Kevin Farley came to our attention with all his early work on shows like 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and a few Adam Sandler films. Just a few years back Kevin produced and starred in " I Am Chris Farley.' The feature documentary got rave reviews and tons of play. Kevin Farley got his own TV series where he co stars with Billy Ray Cyrus on 'Still The King' on now, Sunday Nights. Billy plays an Elvis Impersonator and Kevin is his probation officer. It's gotten fantastic reviews and looks to be CMT's biggest new show this season.
Kevin started doing stand up comedy about 5 years ago and now has also become one the names to see on stage with his personal and crazy physical stage show. See him live on stage this weekend at Stanford and Sons Overland Park, Rosana Square. Call 913 400 7500 for tickets and dinner. Meet one of Hollywoods newest and brightest stars. Friday and Saturday shows are at 745 and 945pm.
