Lewis Black Sends Stanfords Shout Out!!!



A noteworthy bit of recognition for our pal Craig and update about weekend plans . . .

Craig Glazer: Salute From Lewis Black To Stanfords: Adam Hunter This Weekend

Lewis Black was the cover story in this weeks Kansas City Star Entertainment Section. Black will be at the Midland this month. The story was about how much Lewis loved Kansas City. Mostly he loved Stanford and Sons: "I knew I had made it big when I started selling out Stanfords in Westport.," said Black. He went on to say that Stanfords was 'the' hottest club in America at that time, the late 90's. We had a long and fantastic relationship with Lou.

Black played Stanfords many times as a young comic in the 80's and 90's as an opener and feature...late in the 90's he became a headliner. As Lewis name grew so did his crowds. Black had become a weekly regular on 'THE DAILY SHOW' and that got him attention. In fact he and Dave Attell were both in KC back to back at Stanords when they were nominated comic of the year by Comedy Central...their clips were played all day and night for days. Black won. His career exploded, so he moved to theaters and Casino's...more money. Later Lewis got movies and was a regular on late night tv shows and more. Lewis was kind enough to open our new spot at Legends back in 2007.

Stanfords launched so many stars in the 80's, 90's and early 2000's. Why? People like Lewis, Lisa Lamponelli, Jim Jefferies, Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White and so many more, were not big names at that time, so we gave them a chance and promotd all of them. Those who hit as mentioned became super stars and today make millions and play theaters and arenas nationwide...

This week see a star on the rise at Stanfords, Adam Hunter. Hunter was a Joe Rogan regular, Tonight Show, Last Comic Standing and now MMA fight host...yes MMA is in KC this weekend. Many of the fighters will attend shows when they aren't fighting at Sprint. Should be a fun holiday weekend. 913 400 7500 for tix or online stanfords comedy club.com. Legends, Village West. Shows 745/945 Tonight and Saturday

Horse shit! Stanfords is dying the slow death, shitty talent , worse food and a snitch thief for an"owner" ( Banks own it)

If ole Lewis loves it so why don't he do a show at the yuk yuk dump? Amazing how many top comedians drop into The Comedy Store to hone up their acts, which never happens at the Yuk Yuk Club.

The fights are where the real action and entertainment will be this weekend.

Hater big stars don't do comedy clubs after they move to theaters...yet many have come back to stanfords including lewis black...nikki glaser...ron white, etc..so take your hate somewhere else.

Agree with rice guy, I saw Chris Tucker at Stanfords a couple years back, he did no other major comedy clubs.

Rice/ Glazer, they don't at your joint, but they do at other places. Tucker is as much more an actor than a comedian so you can't really rate him as a full time comedian and has always leaned towards doing smaller settings to fill idol time from acting roles.

A big factor in why the big dogs don't do stanfords anymore probably wouldn't surprise most of you. Glazer can rarely score good Cola anymore and the few times he use to ,he'd step on it hard.these dude's got sick & tired of getting ganked by glazer..Attell and a few others told me this,personally.
Ain't that right,Rice ?

^^^^ HAHAHAHA^^^^ Really? Does David Rice lick your ass while he gobbles the goop? Glazer is a snitch fuck and will rip you off every time he can. Roxy 1980.

Gotta love these bullshit canned comments of praise. I've been to Sanfords. Sanfords is no Midland Theater and Doogie Houser's Comedy Trained Dog Act from 1070's TV is no Louis Black.

Same hater over and over. If they aren't a big deal then why does EVERY major comic interview of stars include their praise. Don't see that bout Improv much. Lewis Black is one of the top 20 comics of our time, he loves them, the city and said they were the best in the nation. Who should I believe him or you? You are a hateful dick.

Troll why do you keep saying Glazer is or was a snitch, read the book, no press or interview or anyone says that but you troll hater. You are a liar. Glazer is a stand up guy, never heard one radio caller say that, ever.
