Unlike most comedians who rip off Bill Hick’s phrase, “I’m also available for children’s parties.” he is actually available for children’s parties with his children’s show, “Songs and Stretchy Balloons.”
Mike has also written and played the villain in The Snow Queen and Dick Whittington and made an animation short called Pirate and Parrot 2003 in Toon Boom Studio 2.0.
He is also making comedy music videos and podcasts and has had thousands of downloads mainly for Brian Damage and Krysstal promos, a sci-fi comedy Toth and Cato and horror comedy sketch show The Hammy House of Haw Haw.
