Mike Mercury is a professional stand-up comedian and writer who has been involved in the performing arts in one form or another since he was 8 years old.
He joined an improvisational training and performance group called “L.A. Connection.” After a year with them he formed his own Improv group , “High Adventure.” After passing an audition for Mitzi Shore at the world renowned “Comedy Store”, they quickly became a favorite act there, appearing weekly (and sometimes weakly), opening for Louie Anderson, Robin Williams, Roseanne, Sam Kinison, and Andrew “Dice” Clay, just to namedrop a few.
Mike quickly became an audience favorite and a headliner at comedy clubs all across America. Now working primarily in the Corporate market, his likable persona, quick wit, and clean and clever observational material, make him a much-sought-after performer.
Toss in some customized joke writing specifically for your company and you’ve got the makings of “One very memorable evening”. – Milwaukee Journal
“Mike Mercury delivers great material AND plays off an audience as well as anybody we’ve ever seen. What a character! He is Jay Leno, Eddie Haskell and Dennis the Menace all at once.” -Chicago Tribune
