Mike Stanley

Given his penchant toward brutal honesty, spiced up with a healthy dose of insatiable wit, it’s not difficult to see why Stanley was named “Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian” in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and ranked inthe top 10 of the best comedians in Chicago by a poll on Comedy.com.

Originally hailing from Detroit, and after spending a decade honing his craft in the Windy City of Chicago he tours constantly, both domestically and internationally. Don’t miss out on an incredible opportunity to catch the man in action – this high level of killer stand-up is too remarkable to sit out.
