Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns to The Back Bowl in Eagle Saturday, Nov. 17, at 8:15 p.m., with comedian Mike Stanley.

Stanley's style has be called, wry, witty, cunning and crass. When it comes to standup, could you ask for anything more?

Given his penchant for brutal honesty and searing observation, combined with an insatiable wit, it's easy to see why Stanley was received critical praise in two different major cities; Chicago and Detroit, where he first tested the waters of stand-up comedy.

After cutting his teeth in his Motown home, he moved on to the robust comedy scene in Chicago, where so many of today's most famous comedians honed their craft.

It was there that Stanley started racking up a series of accolades in both clubs and a multitude of comedy festivals across the country and internationally, including the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and the cult-centric Funny or Die Oddball Comedy Fest featuring Dave Chapelle.
