Hearne: Stanford’s Looking @ Second Location in Uptown ‘Conspiracy Room’

king-tutDon’t look now but comedy could be returning to Midtown…

Stanford’s is looking at opening a second comedy club in the Uptown Theater‘s Conspiracy Room.

“I’ve always thought that it was a cool room and I still do,” says Stanford’s Craig Glazer. “I think it can work.”

For two years Stanford’s has been checking out locations in KCMO, the most recent being the Beaumont Club in Westport.

wacky_santa_01As for the prospect of walking like an Egyptian in the Conspiracy as early as this fall, “I want to do it if we can come to a fair deal,” Glazer says. “We’ll have to test the water for a year, but I think it’s a good room and a good location.”

Make no mistake, landing Stanford’s would be a huge coup for Midtown.

“We would be the pioneer for that location,’ Glazer says. “But if anybody could pull it off, we can. I’d call it Stanford’s on Broadway.”

      harlinator- your schtick does not hold up outside KCC because the only laughing going on is when we make fun of you for being you.

    Good I think the city needs a good comedy club and we all miss the good old Westport days. Oh the fun I had.

    That sounds pretty rinky-dink.

    Larry Sells vs Craig Glazer in a real estate negotiation. That would probably be a far more interesting documentary then King of Sting would be a movie.

    Short of harley debating Chuck on the merits of social justice and spell check this is one room I’d love to be a fly on the wall in.

    This will make Putin and Obama look like Rowan and Martin.

    If the deal goes down this has the potential for offering Biblically priceless quotes after the honeymoon, separation and divorce.

    Please Jesus, if we can’t cure cancer this wekk, let this happen!

    smartcoward again please stay in your basement, have mom bring you a tv dinner tonight and continue to watch Sponge Bob, ok. Leave these more important issues to grownups. Thank you.

    Being serious for a moment. Larry has done a masterful job with not only bringing the Uptown back to life, but all the other rooms and now bars and small theaters in the buildings. He is quite a marvel at design and decor as he has proven over and over. The room we are looking at is very nice, well built, designed. It would make a nice comedy theater. Its four blocks from Westport, on the way to Cross Roads and P & L. the energy it would create is well needed in midtown. Could be very cool.

      Hey Chia-Head, look at you, the guy that stakes his reputation on scoring with barely legal chicks talking about grownups!

      I got tossed from the basement in 1981. Mom always cooked from scratch. No TV dinners. All the Swanson’s your mom fed you growing up lacked the necessary nutrition you needed which is why your hair fell out and you have to take HGH and steroids. Hell, your sperm probably looks like a spaghetti-o, just a little circle chasing itself around.

      And lose the sunglasses. Your starting to look like Truman Capote.

      I saw you at Walgreens buying diapers. Was Harley over for a playdate or were those for your new girlfriend? Harley says you take him to Mi Rancito and you both share a Dirty Sanchez.

      If you knew anything about business you’d know that your best bet to maximize revenue with a second location would be to look at Lees Summit or Blue Springs.

      I know it’s hard to think with that beaver pelt on your head but trust me, as cool as it might be to have a midtown, Westport location it’s not the right move long term. And really Craig, no one wants to keep you viable more than me.
      Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

        Knockin’ it out as usual Smarty!!

        Yep. In fact, I can’t see how a “second location” in Midtown/Westport would NOT cut deeply into the business in Timbuktu, aka “The Legends.” Unless Glazer is drawing heavily from Bonner Springs and Shawnee.

        Of course, that is possible. But I think it more likely that the Legends isn’t providing Glazer with quite the rented lifestyle he is accustomed, and rather than expanding, he is trying to repeat his daddy’s success before the whole thing goes under.

      those two Jaggoffs go together like peas & carrots!

    I wanted to go see Larry Sells a few weeks ago, was sick as a dog with alergies. It is weird how sick I was, I thought it was 1348.

    Salisbury Steak TV dinners of all kinds, yummmm… The rubbery texture of the meat in combination with the plastic green beans is the poor man’s peice de resistance in the genre. Throw on some black and white 985 ME TV, open the window to smell the freshly cut grass, dive into dinner and it seems once again, like you might have a chance at getting to first base with that hot little chick with the pony tails you met by the Ice Cream Truck 50 years ago, or, in harley’s case, today.

    Sweet baby Jesus, the Smarty/Craig repartee (Noun;Conversation or speech characterized by quick, witty comments. Synonyms retort – rejoinder, for our grammar and syntax challenged readers or Raytown residents) is, well, I don’t care WHO you are, that there’s some funny stuff!

    Oh come on, Raytown folks, lighten up; I live in OLATHE, Kansas’ equivalent. Take heart, at least it’s not Sugar Creek!

  9. smartman says:

    Wilson. Excellent point about the word repartee. Very few people know or use it, but everybody knows what a Dirty Sanchez is, especially in Raytown. What’s the world coming to?

  10. zak says:

    Graig I would think twice about that area. A lot of trashy people around there. Also
    being a tenant of Larry Sells?
