Michael Mitchell

Michael "Mike" Mitchell is a writer, improviser and sketch comedian. Mike started performing at the UCB Theater in 2006 and has since become a member of the sketch group The Birthday Boys. He and the rest of The Birthday Boys are excited to be performing a brand new sketch show every first Wednesday of the month alongside the hilarious sketch team A Kiss From Daddy. The Birthday Boys sketch show, produced by Bob Odenkirk, airs on IFC (beginning October 2013).

Mike hails from the beautiful, yet angry city of Quincy, MA. After getting his feet wet with local theaters, Mike moved on to study screenwriting and film making at Ithaca College. After graduation, he turned his back on his family and friends and moved out to Hollywood. With The Birthday Boys, Mike has performed in such shows as: The Halloween Spooktacular, Sketchmas, Two of the Ghostbusters Meet Two of the Ninja Turtles, Late Night Telethon, Sketch Cram, Comedy Death-Ray, and The Birthday Boy's own sketch show Hotdoggin, which was a part of the New York, Seattle and Los Angeles Sketch Festivals. You can find Mike performing around Los Angeles with his improv teams CRUD and Goodbye Mailbox. Bee there!
