Mike has performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal every year since 2008.
In 2015 he took-over hosting duties from Bobby Slayton for The Nasty Show, the festival’s longest running and most popular show. On stage Mike talks about battered women, death, the disabled, war, famine, child abuse and other upbeat topics.
