Mike Brown is a comedian and writer from Harlem, New York. He’s performed at Caroline’s Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, Laugh Lounge, EastVille Comedy Club, and other venues all over New York. He also hosts events, including one at SUNY where he did a pretty awesome job. Really! He knows that because 128 audience members became his Facebook friend afterwards—and we all know how hard it is to get Facebook friends.
Mike Brown’s first time doing stand up was in the third grade for a talent show. He didn’t win. Those judges were idiots.
Mike Brown is also quite the scholar and journalist. Really. He was an Applied Mathematics major at NJIT until he decided that math sucked. No, he was NOT a loser*. He transferred to Hunter College and got his BA in English Creative Writing while completing the Thomas Hunter Honors Program. Oh yeah, he’s THAT awesome. His work has appeared in KING Magazine, Kicksclusive Magazine (where he was the Music Editor for three years), and on allhiphop.com. He also gave college girls dating advice on UniversityChic.com. If you do a search, you’ll find some gems that he won’t admit to writing. Impressive, right? I KNOW! He’s TOTALLY dateable.
Mike Brown has appeared on Oprah Winfrey Network doing stand-up comedy. That’s the network, not to be confused with the Oprah Winfrey Show. And it was only an appearance, his jokes were hilarious but didn’t make the final edit. Not to worry, though. The San Francisco Sketchfest 2012 featured Mike Brown as a part of the Rooftop Comedy showcase.** The people at Rooftop Comedy are nothing like those judges in the 3rd grade.
Mike Brown will do comedy anywhere. Comedy club, cellar, bar, basement, gym, laundromat, church, college, condo, backyard, front-yard, attic, living room, bedroom, bathroom, Bed Bath and Beyond, funeral home (to liven things up), mobile home, retirement home, wherever. And for the record, Mike Brown loves comedy much more than writing about himself in the third person.
*No, Mike Brown was not and will never be a loser. Fun Fact: There is a chorus to a rap song that goes “All I do is win, win, win. No matter what.” That song is about Mike Brown.
**Mike Brown’s performance in SF SketchFest 2012 is featured on SIRIUS XM Radio as one of the festival’s highlights.
