$250 - $2000 per event
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 850 newspaper columns and has made over 2000 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 opened for or shared the stage with such diverse performers as Mike Baldwin, Killer Beez, JR Brow, Benji Brown, Pat Bullard, Bill Burr, Nick Cobb, Chris Cubas, Tony Daro, Pete Davidson, Nick DiPaolo, Leo DuFour, Bill Engvall, Janeane Garofalo, Argus Hamilton, Mrs. Hughes, Moshe Kasher, O'Brien & Valdez, Raymond Orta, Ken Rogerson, Sara Schaefer, Ari Shaffir, Tom Simmons, Ron White, Damon Williams and Bob Zany.

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.

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!!

Stan Silliman was the single WORST speaker experience I have had in 15 years of setting up meetings and hiring speakers. He told terrible, completely inappropriate, offensive, vulgar jokes that no one laughed at. We expected him to tell anecdotes about sports fans from one of his books and he never even mentioned it. It was like a really bad night club act. I was offended and mortified that my members were subjected to his material. I should have stood up and put a stop to it immediately and regret that I didn't do that. If I hadn't already given him his check, I would have withheld it. I strongly suggest that you NOT book him for any kind of corporate event.

Stan Silliman’s Response:

It's obvious Ms Dempsey didn't like me or my comedy but I need to counter a few things. I wasn't asked to specifically talk about my books. Almost all gigs I've ever got on GM were for comedy. I have 4 videos on GM clients normally view. It now seems she didn't look at them. The group I did stand-up for included 300 or so middle aged to older men with perhaps five women. I am old and gimpy and talked about the experience of being an old, gimpy guy without cursing, or swearing or using bad words, nothing you wouldn't see on Leno. Most of the people were laughing and smiling. My wife was just outside the room and could hear the laughter.
