Mike Lawrence is a comedian born and raised in South Florida. He began doing comedy as a way to escape the dullness of his job at the McDonald's Drive-Thru, and quickly fell in love with it. He moved to New York in 2007, where he could write about all of his miserable life experiences from a safe distance. He has since performed at the New York Comic-Con (A dream come true), was nominated for the Emerging Comic Award at the 2009 ECNY Awards, and was featured in Time Out New York. He was one of the "New Faces" at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He most recently made his television debut on John Oliver's New York Stand up Show on Comedy Central.
