Mike’s Journey in Comedy
In 2016 Mike found out that he had cancer. If (and when) he was going to beat it, there were two things that he wanted to do after recovery – come out of ‘retirement’ and hit a couple of Pro Bowling events, and try stand-up comedy. About a year after his cancer surgery he started to feel like himself again. So he hit the lanes and bowled a bit. But once he hit the stage and tried comedy, he quickly realized he had more passion for giving that his time then going back on tour. He still may hit a tour stop sometime, but right now it’s not his priority. Comedy and speaking is his priority. Want to see a show? Check out his calendar.
This is just a small taste of his comedy. NEWS FLASH – he pokes fun of himself for having one hand. In a way, he’s been working on that material his entire life. He has no problem having one hand, so joking about it is easy for him. However, he is developing material around two handed people, but but he’s not sure how that will go over; if you happen know any of those people, you know how sensitive they can be.

Support is crucial when trying anything new. As any of the comedians will tell you…it is very stressful to get up in front of a bunch of people you don’t know and try to make them laugh. In his life I have literally conducted presentations in front of billionaires. This is much more stressful. That is why the support has earned is so important. Family, friends, and the people in the audience he doesn’t yet know are truly a blessing. He loves meeting and inspiring all people.
