KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One of Kansas City's most colorful and well-known characters has died.

Craig Glazer, who was just 65 years old, had been in the hospital recently, and had surgery due to problems with his heart and kidneys.

Many knew Glazer because he ran his family's comedy club, Stanford and Sons, for decades. He also brought many comedians on the FOX4 Morning Show each week.
