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.
