Stand Up Dads at the Bing

Just in time for Father's Day! 'Stand Up Dads' featuring Milt Abel and Dan St. Paul hit the stage at the Bing Crosby Theater, Monday, June 4 at 7 pm. Get ready for some good clean fun.

With 23 national TV appearances, 47 years of standup comedy experience and 14,346 diapers changed, these guys know comedy, and fatherhood. 'Stand Up Dads' is the brainchild of Dan St. Paul (A&E, VH-1, Comedy Central). At the prestigious Villa Montalvo in Saratoga, California, St. Paul had been opening for acts such as Natalie Cole, Vince Gill, and Smokey Robinson. He became such a crowd favorite the Villa called upon Dan and his funniest friend of 20 years for a full evening's worth of comedy in 'Two Stand Up Dads.'

Milt Abel (San Francisco Comedy Competition finalist) joins Dan in examining the grist of fatherhood and suburban life: from child birth to adolescence (My bumper sticker reads 'My son's just getting by at Hillsdale High). Both are fathers who pride themselves on performing clever material about family life that has audiences laughing across America.

Adults: $12. Students/Youth: $8. Entire family: $40. At the door Adults $15, Students/Youth: $10, Entire Family $50. Get your tickets in advance through the BYU Management Society website at
