I've been fortunate to find myself performing at corporate shows, colleges & universities, comedy clubs, festivals and benefit shows across the country. One of the accomplishments in my comedy that I am most proud of is being selected as a back-to-back finalist for the Great American Comedy Festival in Norfolk, NE. That festival is run in the hometown of Johnny Carson and is a clean comedy festival. Remind me later to tell you about the times I worked with SNL alums Chris Kattan and Tim Meadows, and New York Time's best-selling author Greg Behrendt. In 2013, I've actually been hired to write the first (to my knowledge) comedic river tour of the Chicago River. I've performed at all the major comedy clubs in the Chicago area and am a regular at the Improv and Zanies.

The style of comedy I perform is essentially clean. I consider my act clean but tactfully irreverent. What does that mean? Adult humor, no vulgarity. Audiences of all ages have enjoyed my blend of frustrated observations and shamelessly honest life experiences. Beyond stand up comedy, I've graduated from The Second City's Training Program and The Conservatory for improv and sketch comedy. Clients have booked me to host/emcee events (WebPT annual conference, NFL, Ford, & Notre Dame Football), and even post prom improv shows. If there's an event needing an engaging host, I am more than willing to help.

Mike did a FANTASTIC job at our Holiday Office Party. Bits were perfect for people of all ages and he was a clean comedian that made EVERYONE laugh until it hurt. I would recommend Mike to anyone and I suggest if you are thinking about booking him. DO IT!

Mike was our emcee for our first stop on a two month tour. Naturally, there were many growing pains at our first events on our side and he was 100% ready, willing, and able to adjust his style and approach throughout the days to reflect our tweaks and changes. In the end, we opted to discard the technical talking points we had originally asked him to highlight and have him work his own magic while referencing what we had to offer. This was definitely the right decision as it was more interesting, more natural, and way more fun for everyone involved. Mike was punctual (early!), professional, personable, and an overall pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

Mike was asked to perform under a litany of restrictions and still managed to put on a fantastic show! He was responsive, professional, and funny despite being forced to use mostly PG material. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!
