Mike is a gulf war Veteran, not from the second war, but the first(yes he is that old). He began his journey to stardom as poor black boy growing up in a small town in Pennsylvania. Through hard work and dedication, Mike was able to transform himself into a poor black man still living in a small town in Pennsylvania. Mike has been working on his act for about one and a half years, and oh yes, he is getting good. So when you see him probably ten years from now as an over night sensation, just know that he put in a lot of hard work and went through a lot of bottles of wild turkey to develop his funny act.
