Growing up in the gritty streets of Jersey City, NJ – Mike quickly realized that he needed to learn how to fight or be funny, he chose the latter. Mike was the class clown, the ball buster of the crew. He spent most of his twenties recovering from addiction and having a family. In 2002 Mike decided to grab the mic and do what he knew best. Armed with a shaky past and bright future, Mike takes the stage each night with great energy and love for life. No one in Mike’s life is safe from being a part of his act. Mike holds nothing back and is rarely offensive. He recently started a website for humor in recovery and tours regularly in the recovery convention circuit. Mike has a great way of making us laugh at some of the most touchy subjects from addiction to children. He is a regular at some of the best clubs in and around NYC.
