He regularly tours the country, and, when home, he plays all the major New York City clubs
including the Comedy Cellar and New York Comedy Club. It makes no difference to him
whether he’s performing in a club, a bar, a casino, an elevator (done that twice), a parking lot, a
rooftop, on a fake beach in front of a freight train, or in a technically-legal underground
speakeasy – comedy is his life. Mike is dedicated to making the majority of you laugh and the
rest of you confused, yet oddly satiated.
