ABOUT MIKE

Mike McDonald is Funny-smart, with a PHD in sarcasm,…. A style that has brought him to 50 different countries doing stand-up, either entertaining our troops for the USO,  corporate schmooze fest's on fancy islands, or crushing the main stage on Cruise ships or Vegas and Atlantic City Casino’s.

Mike has shared the stage with

Robin Williams, Bill Burr, Tom Cotter, and Chris Rock.  McDonald is a two-time Ace Award winner, and has appeared on HBO's Downtown Productions, Showtime, Comic Strip Live, MTV's Half-hour Comedy Hour, and the Comedy Channel.  Mike’s also seen in the films When Stand-up Stood Out & Call Me Lucky about Boston’s rich comedy history.

Mike's improvisational skills and ability to nimbly jump between prepared material and crowd work is an expertise few other comedians can bring to the table.  

As a Producer/Comedian, Mike brought friends Steven Wright and Paula Poundstone to their very 1st comedy auditions.   In addition, Mike’s Cable Comedy Show in Boston saw the 1st time TV appearances of John Pinette, Dennis Leary, Kevin Meaney, Jonathan Katz, Wendy Liebman and Louie CK.

Additionally, Mike has written comedy sports articles for the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and NY Times... and a column called Trash Talk, a Funny Football rant for Packer Report magazine.

Along with having earned all his cub scout badges, McDonald once stopped some little kids from crying by taking away a guy's trombone.
