Wisconsin native Mike Mercury is a professional stand-up comedian and writer who has been involved in the performing arts in one form or another since he was 8 years old.

While attending college, Mike became a star in the community theater scene. He gave commanding performances in everything from serious dramas to high comedy to musical operettas. In 1983, armed with just his sizzling array of talents and his wealth of experience (and about $180 in his pocket) he headed west to Los Angeles to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a MOVIE STAR!

That didn’t happen. He did, however, accomplish many notable things. He joined an improvisational training and performance group called “L.A. Connection.” After a year with them he formed his own Improv group , “High Adventure.” After passing an audition for Mitzi Shore at the world renowned Comedy Store, they quickly became a favorite act there, appearing weekly while opening for Louie Anderson, Robin Williams, Roseanne Barr, Sam Kinison, and Andrew “Dice” Clay, just to namedrop a few.

After moving back to Wisconsin, Mike played the lead in a production of an original political satire called “Election Rejection: How I Flunked Out of the Electoral College” which was produced at the renowned “Ark” theater. After a successful run in which critics and audiences alike raved about his performance (some were heard saying, “He should go back to L.A.”) he was hired as a permanent act at the Piccadilly Comedy Pub. It was there that he finally put all his talents to use in what has now become the show that it is today.

Mike quickly became an audience favorite and a headliner at comedy clubs all across America. Now working primarily in the Corporate market, his likable persona, quick wit, and clean and clever observational material, make him a much-sought-after performer.

Mike Marvell has been doing comedy professionally for over 25 years, although he's been making people laugh his whole life. He told his guidance counciler in high school he wanted to be an engineer and she told him "With your grades? That's hilarious, you should be a comedian!" His comedy is based on growing up in Wisconsin... football, hunting, fishing, his family, and his wife and kids. He's performed at everything from churches to swinger clubs, grade schools to colleges, country clubs. to biker clubs, nursing homes to casinos (same thing). Instant likability, he reminds you of your crazy cousin, the guy next door, your brother-in-law. Even if you don't hire him you'll still want to hang out with him.
