Detroit native, Mike Bobbitt brings a punk rock edge to his nerd comedy by embracing his obsessions and taking the piss out of them at the same time. With the charm and candor of a smart-aleck kid who’s ‘just too smart for his own good’, Mike’s been making audiences laugh for years. He brings the audience on a humorous journey through the fumbles and foibles of his everyday life. Mike speaks to a very specific group while maintaining accessibility to the masses.
He has been part of many comedy festivals including the Detroit International Comedy Festival, Calgary Funnyfest, Las Vegas World Series of Comedy and multiple appearances at Gilda’s Laugh Fest. His three comedy albums “Mikey Pooh”, “Full Frontal Nerdity” and “nowadays.” can be heard regularly on XM/Sirius satellite radio. He was also on the hugely popular WTF Podcast with Marc Maron.
Mike has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many of the nation’s best comedians and feels lucky that he can count the times he’s had to work with the nation’s worst comedians on one hand.
Mike Bobbitt lives in Los Angeles with his two cats and thousands of action figures. He has written for Funny or Die, and has acted on ABC Family’s “Freak Out”, more crime reenactment television shows than you can shake a stick at, and a couple independent movies due out in 2015. He also looks great in blue.

Joe grew up on the east side of Detroit and began writing at an early age, though most of it was completely libelous. He has long had a secret desire to perform stand-up comedy, but as every girl he’s ever dated has emphatically stressed, he is not funny. Joe has written fiction, journalism, and horoscopes.
Aaron Mondry is a freelance writer and journalist based in Detroit who’s written stories on culture, urban planning, the environment, and more. He’s also an improv enthusiast who occasionally performs himself.
Mike has been writing and performing comedy since 2007. After two years of painfully botched attempts at stand-up, Mike quickly realized his true passion was in the art of comedy writing, not performing it on stage…alone…with all those expectations…people watching you with their arms crossed, then getting up in the middle of your set while loudly shouting “well this sucks” as they answer their cell phone and slam the door behind them…but I digress, err, I mean “he” digresses. Anyhoo, after moving to Chicago, Mike honed his humor writing craft with Second City and eventually moved back to Detroit where he discovered another passion, performing improv. He can be found performing said improv at local Detroit establishments like Go Comedy and the Planet Ant. Mike currently resides with his cat in Royal Oak. The end.
