BIO

MIKE STANKIEWICZ

Dig, it's appropriate that this cat has gigged
in nearly every comedy venue in the
United States. At home in an eclectic gathering
in San Francisco or a rust belt bar come
shifts end, this clever comic will turn the tables
on everyone. Winner of the prestigious"Best of Philly"
award presented by Philadelphia Magazine, Stank takes
you down a road you didn't expect to travel with a
conversational style that makes you feel like you're
riding the bar stool next to him. Among his
international television appearances includin
"Comedy On The Road" with John Byner on A&E, Mike
presents a special wit that transcends all mediums and
blows his audiences away! Maybe that's why everyone
wants him back.

Originally from Erie, PA where Mike realized playing second
base on the Duck Inn softball team would not propel him to
the "Big League". He moved to Philadelphia to cut his teeth
doing stand-up. With his rust belt influence, his intellectual
proclivity and a blue-collar approach to humor, he turned
Philadelphia on its ear. Stank does for stand-up what Tom
Waits does for music. So if you like Mr. Waits and have a
penchant for Charles Bukowski, you'll love Mike Stankiewicz!
An interesting aspect to Mike's career is that he has lived on
both coasts (LA and NY) and fits seamlessly in both locations
as well as everywhere in between.

Now Stank plies his wares everywhere from Las Vegas to
Atlantic City, from Mobile to Montana. He's a modern day
Kerouac, hell, you probably passed him "on the road"!
