Welcome to Michael's World.
"Mike is the funniest person I've ever met!"
- Michael Oldroyd
"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."
- Dr. Seuss
Whether it's been entertaining on stage or on the football field, this class clown has always loved the spotlight. Hassled by nearly every teacher since kindergarten for his classroom distractions, Michael spent most of his time in detention. He grew up impersonating his favorite childhood comedians, Jim Carrey & Adam Sandler for friends, family, detention supervisors. He started doing stand-up in 9th grade. His history teacher challenged him to try it in front of the class. He was always funny from the back of the room, but coming to the front of the class and doing stand-up was completely different.
He was later voted Most Likely to Host SNL by his high school senior class of 300+ students.
Torn between his passion for winning the classroom over with laughter and his love for the game of football, he pursued both after beginning to play football at the age of 8. In the fall of 2006, Mike walked onto the Missouri Tigers Football Team. He did enjoy all the free Gatorade on the sidelines.
He has been crowned a two-time back-to-back champion of Mid-Missouri's Last Comic Standing Competition, and he was a member of the 2008 Cotton Bowl Championship Football Team. He's performed all over the world at weddings, comedy clubs, and corporate events, including LA, Chicago, NYC, Tokyo, London, and Amsterdam. He studied in the Academy at UCB in New York City, and he is now headlining shows around the country.
