This is a benefit show for the musical theater department for Millikan Middle School. Skyler Stone's kids attend this school, and he has held this benefit annually for 4 years to help fund a musical production for the program. The state has drastically cut funding to the arts, so it is up to parents and outside donors to raise the funds needed for kids to get to experience the arts. Get tickets while you can as this show sells out every year and ticket prices rise as the lineup grows! Do it for the kids!https://www.thecomedystore.com/event/1690726/
Many top directors have cast Skyler in supporting roles in the last few years (Sir Christopher Guest, the Farrelly Brothers, Michael Bay, and Roger Avary to name a few). He has done guest stars on The Defenders, Rules Of Engagement, The Mentalist, CSI:NY, Dollhouse, Dark Blue, Zeke And Luther, and Lost. He has been the host of two Cartoon Network shows, two MTV shows and hosts his own live comedy show every month in LA at the Hollywood Improv called Skyler Stone & People He Pretends Are His Friends (it is one of their top-selling shows). Most remember him from his role as one of the cooks in the feature Waiting, he played opposite Dane Cook, Ryan Reynolds and Luis Guzman in his kitchen scenes.
Skyler just starred in his first leading role in a film called Housebroken with Danny Devito. He has also just been cast in a hilarious recurring role on Raising Hope for FOX (from My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia). It started airing September 21st of 2010 on Fox in the much sought after time-slot after Glee. Skylerstone.com has won several awards for its design and for its innovative use of Skyler's twisted comedy. He is just wrapped filming a lead role for the horror film Hostel: Part III. He has a dog named Sammy that goes with him everywhere.
