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.
Sam Morril, one of the fastest-rising stand-up comics in New York City, is also one of the best joke writers in the scene today. How do you know that’s true? Because he is writing this bio, and he wouldn’t lie about that to get extra work.
In 2011, Sam won The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and was named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch.” More recently, Sam has been seen on Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’sHouse Party, “Conan” on on TBS twice, and is a regular on Fox News’ “Red Eye.”
He’s also been on Last Comic Standing, @Midnight, and Inside Amy Schumer. Sam recorded his debut album on Comedy Central records, which went to #1 on iTunes and made numerous top 10 lists. He also released his very own half-hour Comedy Central special.
You can see Sam regularly at The Comedy Cellar in New York City, and some other clubs. He even pops into those pretentious indy hipster shows, and is regularly on the road hitting new cities.
Now is your chance to see Sam. Do it soon before you catch swine flu or something. It’s out there!
