Mike Lebovitz

Comedian Profile

Mike Lebovitz began his comedy career at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He’s been delighting and confounding audiences with his intoxicating brand of wild-eyed humour ever since.  Equal parts lovable and absurd, Mike’s act careens from topic to topic with the force of a runaway freight train with dubious couplings and a wheel that’s come loose. Audiences have described the experience as “spontaneous,” “joyful” and “slightly terrifying.”

Mike cut his teeth in Chicago (not as painful as it sounds), where he was a member of the popular collective Comedians You Should Know and a regular contributor to WBEZ’s weekly live literary magazine, The Paper Machete. He also co-curated (with his buddy Junior) Señorita Weiner’s Top Secret Humor Experiment and Ice Cream Social Club, Chicago’s longest-running clandestine, nomadic comedy showcase and the original members-only ice cream social.

A burgeoning international star, Mike has offended nostrils in Montreal as a “New Face” of the 2013 Just For Laughs, and in Switzerland where he won the international competition at the 2013 The Montreux Comedy Fest. In 2014, Mike returned to Montreux as the “Godfather” of the competition and recorded his debut album, LEBO for Stand-Up Records. In 2015 he appeared on Season 9 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He lives in New York with his lonely wife and three poor children.
