A native of St. Louis, Mike MacRae began performing at the legendary (read: “closed”) Houston Laff Stop in 1999 and soon developed his trademark style of blending obscure impressions into straight stand-up. Mike’s television debut was on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2001 and he has since performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, NESN’s “Comedy All-Stars”, and was a cast member on the TBS sketch show “Frank TV”. In 2009, Mike was invited to perform on the Master’s Showcase at the Montreal “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival. He has also lent his distinctive voice to numerous commercials, video games, cartoons, anime, and Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network.
Now a resident of Austin, TX, Mike tours the country performing in comedy clubs and can be heard regularly on syndicated radio programs such as “The Bob & Tom Show” and “The Jimmy Dore Show”, as well as various comedy podcasts, because that’s a thing that people apparently do now that will somehow pay off in the future. Mike’s comedy short “Taste in Powder” garnered rave reviews at the Austin Film Festival in 2010, and the YouTube comments were surprisingly benign. Mike is happy to announce that he has recently been invited to perform at both the upcoming SXSW and Moontower Comedy Festivals in Austin in 2012.
