Born in Kentucky and dragged throughout the south before settling in Indiana to be raised in a trailer, Mikey Mason has a diverse background to draw material from. With his abnormal childhood, five siblings, two marriages, two children, multiple pets, college experiences, and many career changes (ranging from fast food, to working at a funeral home, to teaching middle school, high school and college, as well as working with at-risk youth,) he’s got a lot to talk—and sing—about.
Mikey went from performing in bands and sketch and improv comedy troupes to performing standup over the last 15 years. He’s performed at Crackers, the Comedy Caravan, Wiley’s, Comedy Niteclub, Snickerz Comedy Bar, Mason City Limits, Go Bananas, and One Liners, as well as many bars, clubs, fraternities, and private parties in and around the Midwest. He’s performed with Todd Yohn, John Fox, Rob Haney, Lord Carrett, Steve Iott, Troy Davis, Chris Speyrer, Tracey Tedesco, and Tim Rowlands, among others, and has made multiple regional television and radio appearances. With a strong stage presence, infectiously hilarious songs, and a wit almost as fast as his mouth, Mikey is an unforgettable performer.
Mikey draws the audience in with his saucy, irreverent blend of storytelling and outrageous songs. No subject or musical style is off limits. From country to rock, pop to rap, religion to
relationships, politics to childhood insecurities, Mikey is unabashed, unafraid, and unquestionably funny.
