Long before hitting the stage, Mike’s passion for comedy began. Remember when your parents would say "go to bed" - Mike would go into his room and watch Letterman and the Tonight Show with the volume on so soft and with a blanket over his head so his parents wouldn't see the light coming out from under the door. He would watch for one reason - to see any and all stand up comedians. His dream was to someday grab a mic and headline some of the top comedy clubs in the country. Mike started that dream by winning "Funniest Person on Campus" at UCONN and went on to win many more contests including "The Catch a New Rising Star" and "Next Big Thing".
Mike is now a fan favorite across the region by headlining weekends at clubs all over at venues such as Catch a Rising Star, Golden Nugget Casino, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. He has also been the opening act in clubs and theaters for Jim Breuer, Jay Mohr, Tom Arnold, David Alan Grier, David Koechner and Jessica Kirson
