Mikey started performing stand up comedy on June 29, 2006, and while this was only 2 days before the end of the financial year, he quickly learned that comedians can claim almost anything as an expense, saving himself a shitload in taxes ($12).
In April 2009, he took the main stage at the Melbourne Town Hall, performing in front of 1500 people in the televised RAW Comedy National Grand Final. In the aftermath, comedy fans on the streets of Melbourne recognized him for several days.
2010 proved to be a massive year for Mikey, seeing him perform in the Adelaide Fringe (Young Guns of Comedy), the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (These Are My Jokes), and last but definitely not least, in the Sydney Comedy Festival (Cracker Night 2010 Gala @ Metro) along side a slew of veteran comedians including Reginald D Hunter, Mitch Fatel, Tony Woods, Dom Irrera, Jeremy Hotz, Carey Marx and more - a rare feat considering he did not actually have a show in the festival.
2011 saw Mikey perform his 2nd solo Melbourne International Comedy Festival show They're Just Words to mixed reviews, followed immediately by his Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut Stupid People Will Be Offended to no reviews – although Mikey swears it was “way better”. He was also a guest on Greg Fleet’s Big Love (MICF 2011), Peter Buckley Hill and Some Comedians (EdFringe 2011), and The Set List hosted by Paul Provenza (EdFringe 2011).
Through the years Mikey has worked hard to develop his unique comedic style which is described as a combination of observational comedy in an almost one-liner fashion, incorporating political and philosophical ideas and mixing them with his own brand of silliness.
Touted as Australia's Funniest Young Comedian by Zoo Weekly, Mikey has worked as a comedy writer for Channel 10's hit TV show Good News Week, been heard on Triple J as part of Tom and Alex's Good Az Friday Joke-a-thon, and is a regular on Facebook where his status updates are liked by several people.
