September 4-5 – Mike Gaffney


From Gotham Comedy Live, Atlantic City, Las Vegas
Also featuring Tommy Gooch and Kim Jonny

Mike grew up in a tough New Jersey neighborhood where he quickly learned he needed to get tough or get funny…Hes not that tough but Mike Gaffney is very funny. Mike’s style of comedy is very conversational discussing day to day life not only as a single dad but as a friend, son , uncle and all around good guy. Wherever Mike performs whether it be in a New York City comedy club or a town fundraiser Mike wins audience’s love and respect with his personal take on life and fatherhood. People all over find Mike very relate-able and likable. His high energy and quick wit keep audiences engaged and entertained the entire time.

“There are two things I love to do.. One is make people laugh, especially people I love and the other is to help people figure things out inside themselves.”  Mike is not only a single father with full custody of his teenage son and daughter he is a recovering addict with almost two decades of recovery and experience. “Its almost like I have two different stage acts. There’s the regular comedy scene where I do all my day to day life stuff then there’s the recovery material that I do mainly for the recovery community. I very rarely talk about recovery in mainstream clubs..which is the way I am in life .. I LIVE recovery I don’t necessarily have to talk about it.”

Mike took to the stage at 32 which is a little older than most. He spent a few years grinding it out before taking a break like many comics do.. In 2009 Mike decided that his love for comedy was too strong so he hit the stage full speed ahead and hasn’t slowed down. Mike works regularly at most clubs in NYC as well as comedy clubs up and down the east coast. You can also hear Mike on his weekly podcast “The Mike Gaffney Show”

From Atlantic City, Las Vegas
Also featuring Mike Grady & Mike Warsaw

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 including “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”!
