Most recently, Mike performed improv at San Francisco Sketchfest with his Austin-based drag queen troupe, Hail To The Queen. Mike enjoys working on body positive projects because he believes everyone should have the opportunity to feel sexy. Mike is also interested in using comedy to explore queerness, identity and their effect on the family dynamic. Based on his experience in having a lesbian mother and recently coming out as bi-sexual himself, there’s a lot to explore.
