Stanley Sievers is a writer, director, actor, and comedian in Brooklyn, NY.

He writes and directs short films that have screened at a bunch of festivals. Some of these earned him awards/nominations including “Best Director” at Austin Comedy Film Festival and “Best Editing” at Atlanta Comedy Film Festival. Some did not.

Other credits include directing a digital short for Funny or Die (Aryan 2 Sleep Machine), co-starring & producing the independent pilot Rap Skool (New York Television Festival, Just for Laughs), and writing/directing the award winning “Killed Them Both” music video for Wayne Hancock on Bloodshot Records.

From 2008-2013 he toured in the hardcore punk band Dead Icons. They toured all over the US, Mexico, and Canada with cool bands. During this time he slept on lots of floors & ate lots of taco bell. You can listen to their album, Condemned, on Spotify to help him make the occasional .25.

In Chicago he improvised at iO Theater with the Harold team Cadaver & at Annoyance Theater with Everyone’s a Critic. He also wrote & performed characters at whatever venues would have him including a solo sketch show at iO called People I Hope Aren't Real.

Currently, you can find him doing comedy all over NY at whatever venues will let him do his thing.

He is originally from Lexington, KY and loves it there.
