About Craig Glazer
I was an upper middle-class Jewish kid from the suburbs of Kansas City when I was ripped off trying to buy marijuana while a freshman at Arizona State University. Fueled by fantasies about outlaws drawn from movies and TV, I decided to strike back by teaming with a streetwise Vietnam vet named Don Woodbeck. We posed as cops and stung dealers across the country. We kept the money and drugs and were never caught. I was such a good conman that the Kansas Attorney General made me a cop--the youngest undercover special agent in America. Eventually I went to Hollywood to sell my life story but that didn’t work out and I returned to doing illegal stings--and served four years in federal prison. Since that experience, I have produced a best-selling series of boxing documentaries, "Champions Forever," which included my working with Muhammad Ali. I have also run for many years, and still today, the well-known Kansas City comedy club Stanford & Sons, which helped launch the careers of Lewis Black, Larry the Cable Guy, and more. Oh yeah, and I almost ran for mayor of Kansas City too. Now I’ve co-authored with Sal Manna a book about my life, "The King Of Sting," the amazing true story of a modern American outlaw, a story of crime and punishment for the baby boomer generation.
