Mike Cannon's Bio
Mike Cannon is a New York City based comedian and a delightful human being. He thinks being a good human being is more important, but for the purposes of this advertisement will keep his thoughts focused on comedy. Mike’s debut comedy album “I Think It Just Kicked In” released in September of 2017 through 800 Pound Gorilla Records debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts and #7 on Billboard comedy charts. In March 2017 he made his stand up comedy television debut on AXS Gotham Comedy Live with host and stand up comedy icon/first time stand up performer, Fran Drescher. Mike has recently appeared as a regular guest on Fox’s Red Eye, a talking head on TruTV’s Greatest Ever, as a panelist on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, TruTV’s Top Funniest, MTV’s Failosophy, MTV’s Money From Strangers, MSG’s The Bracket and has been a contributing writer/performer for MTV2’s Guy Code. He currently is a regular guest on several Sirius/XM Radio shows including The Jim Norton and Sam Roberts Show, Bennington, Wake Up with Taylor, The Compound Media Network, Opie Radio (RIP), and tons of popular podcasts as well as hosting one of his own – Irish Goodbye Podcast. He was also a finalist in the 2016 (and 2014) New York Comedy Festival’s “NY’s Funniest” contest. Previously Mike hosted a popular weekly web-series called “The Weed News with Mike Cannon” and his conspiracy theory podcast “Deep Inside the Rabbit Hole” as well as the spin-off “Mike and Tim Visit Earth.” He was also a co-host of Cosmopolitan Magazine’s web-series Sexy vs Skanky and a featured performer on VH1’s “Why Am I Still Single?” Mike regularly tours the country, but when he is home in New York City he plays all the major clubs and is always working on his act. It makes no difference to him whether he’s performing in a bar, an elevator (done that twice), trying jokes out on his friends, or bothering strangers on the subway for loose change or a sandwich. Comedy is his life, and he is dedicated to making the majority of you laugh and the rest of you confused, yet oddly satiated. He also isn’t sure if he used the word satiated correctly.
