Mike Carreon is a Tejano writer-director based in Los Angeles producing stories about body-positivity, queerness, and identity through comedy.

He is the writer-director of HARD-ISH BODIES, a crime comedy starring Mike as a plus-size stripper, which premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. A live show of the same name won Mike the B. Iden Payne Award for outstanding improv production in Austin, TX.

Mike also produced the bilingual comedy, PEPITO, which was picked up by HBO Latino after winning the 2019 Official Latino short film competition.
