James Stanley was born and raised in Woodbury, Minnesota. James started doing stand up comedy in 2013 at the very young age of 16 in St. Paul, at a vodka bar. James quickly fell in love with preforming after his first few mics. Since then, James has won ‘The Car Bar Comedy Contest', featured in the Dakotas on a brewery tour, and has hosted multiple clubs and venues.
James is constantly out at mics preforming, writing, and polishing his jokes. Doing stand up comedy full time is his goal and he’s more than willing to put in the time and work. He’s going to go as far as he can, doing the best he can.
