FOR AN ENJOYABLE KNOCKOUT EVENT, hire a legend. Hire stand-up comedian Stan Silliman, the funniest sports writer in America. Stan is old and he knows it, but he'll make you feel giddy. He has been delighting crowds for 25 years and no matter how many times you see him, you are always surprised by his noticeably different shows.
Stan has written seven books (including Oklahoma Writer's Federation "Best Book of Poetry in 2002" and the hilarious definitive review on weird, wacky sports fan behavior "Sports Fans are Crazy"), over 650 newspaper columns and has made over 1200 stage appearances. Over the years Stan has created a number of memorable characters including "The Sleep Inducing Comic" the movie-reviewing-comic-detective: "Your Dick at the Flix," and many others.
Stan is the top-ranked joke writer at Kwipster, which is a nationwide site for topical jokes. Also on the site is Colbert, Kimmel, Leno, Letterman and Lopez.
Stan has shared the stage with such diverse performers as Leo DuFour, Ken Rogerson, Ron White, Pat Paulsen, Argus Hamilton, O'Brien & Valdez, Killer Beez, Bob Zany, Pat Bullard and Damon Williams.
Stan's shows can be anywhere from PG to PG-13. His jokes cover a lifetime of experience, from being married over 40 years to family, aging, sex, politics and business. Also Stan has a unique take on the oddities and quirks of the sports world based on 50 years observing sports worldwide. His sports column-Silliman on Sports- appears in 80 newspapers nationwide. It is also on the web worldwide and has been seen in Bleacher Report, Forbes.online, USA Today, CBS Sports, Dallas Morning News, Washington Times, NY Daily News, and the India Times.
Besides appearing on comedy stages from New York City to the Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs, Stan is also a businessman with tons of corporate and business world experience. His business was named the 15th fastest growing Oklahoma corporation in 1998. This gives Stan a unique perspective to address your business seminar or corporate event.

Birthday Party (Adults) in Stillwater, OK on 02/11/2012
"I couldn't have chosen a more perfect entertainer for my husband's 30th birthday. Stan was fantastic! He had my guests (45 guests: age 21-70) rolling in their seats! My husband said it was best gift I'd ever given him....I am so happy I hired Stan :)
I asked Stan if he could "gig" my husband on getting old and his profession as a "bovine repro tech". Not only did Stan write new personalized jokes, he also wrote a short song and even drew a cartoon of my husband! The personal touch was priceless and hilarious!! (Something not every comedian can do...true talent.)
Stan, I can't say thank you enough for everything...you made the night unforgetable!!"
