Mike’s skewed world view is the result of growing up on the mean streets of small town Wisconsin. It’s where he developed a fondness for the music of Kurtis Blow as well as drinking beer in sub-zero temperatures. After a stellar career as a 6’4” power forward on his 5-16 high school basketball team and somehow graduating college, Mike moved to Arizona where he worked as a private investigator and drove a taxi (sometimes at the same time) before starting his stand up career in 2007. His views on politics, sports, parenting, and pop culture are just crazy enough to be sane. Mike participated in the 2010 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas where he won a Wild Card Round show to advance to the semifinals of the event. He was also a finalist in the 2010 AZ Laugh Off and was a special guest on the Beards of Comedy Tour. While his mother would like him to get a job requiring a shirt and tie, Mike seems determined to be underemployed for the rest of his life.
