Mike Lebovitz got his start in comedy at the tender age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He’s been delighting and confounding audiences big and small with his accessibly off-beat brand of humor ever since. A father as well as a fat slob, Mike draws from a broad range of experiences in constructing his act, using outlandish viewpoints and subversive turns of phrase to highlight the inherent absurdity of being. He doesn’t point out life’s quirks; he rolls around and farts on them! Mike is currently a member of Comedians You Should Know, Chicago’s premiere stand-up comedy collective. He is also curator and co-creator of Senorita Weiner's Top Secret Humor Experiment and Ice Cream Social Club, which is Chicago's longest-running clandestine comedy show in as well as the original underground, members-only ice cream social. A national club favorite and burgeoning international star, Mike just took home the grand prize at the Montreux International Comedy Competition in Switerland and was a stand-out "New Face" at the 2013 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He has also performed at the 2012 TBS Just For Laughs Festival (Chicago), The Oddball Comedy Festival and is scheduled to weird people out at the upcoming 2014 Gilda's Laughfest in Grand Rapids, MI.
