MICHAEL

 

Born in Palmerston North New Zealand I left the land of the long white cloud and headed to Australia back in 89 in search of adventure and a burning desire to find happiness.

I worked for a while on the islands in the Whitsundays Entertaining guests as a DJ, Barman and Activities Co-Ordinator before heading to work at the sundeck hotel at the Perisher Ski Resort NSW 1n 1991 working again as a DJ and Barman. Leaving NSW in 1993, I headed up the coast once again and made the Gold Coast my home where I have been ever since.

I started work at Warner Bros. Movie World the same year and became a stunt action performer for the Police Academy Stunt Show where I performed for 16 years.

Enjoying the entertaining and the sound of people laughing out loud I took up stand-up comedy in ’97’ and have been a professional Comedian since 2000, Headlining Clubs,Casinos and Cruise Ships throughout Australasia. 

I’m best known as Mad Mike the warm-up artist for the Police Academy Stunt Show at Warner Bros. Movie World on the Gold Coast of Australia. As Mad Mike I performed over 5,000 ½ hour shows to every walk of life from around the globe. Without a spoken word, Mad Mike had 1000's of people at a time laughing till it hurt with his world-class show.

I was awarded the IAAPA BIG ’E’ Award in 2006. Winner -Best Atmosphere/Street Performer of the worlds Amusement Parks. Much Gratitude, Thank you! I love comedy in every form.

Having an awarness and understanding of the benifits of laughter for Health and Well-being , I've NOW found True Happiness, which is providing Laughter and Entertainment through my commited and energized determination to unleash my creativity and imagination ensuring people are uplifted with a unique variety of comedy, magic, balloon artistry and wonderful inspirational audience participation.
