"You ever go to the gym and see ugly people, and hink what‘s the f...king point?"

"I have two 9 year old kids that live underneath me in my apartment complex that listen to rap music all day. Dude, they can‘t wait to rob me"

Yes, you guessed it, writer and comedian Mike Young was the class clown all through school, including his days at Southfield-Lathrup High in metro Detroit. He‘s the first to admit, “I loved making people laugh in class and I wasn‘t a great student.“

But all that time he spent time watching Saturday Night Live and idolizing Eddie Murphy paid off. It provided the building blocks to a successful start in comedy.

And a good start it was, now a popular touring comedian and writer, Young has three comedy albums under his belt. Digitally released by New Wave Dynamics the title include: DROPPIN‘ BOMBS, EVERYTHING IS FUNNY, and WORK IN PROGRESS.

Young attended the University of Arizona, where he said he earned “a degree in nothing“ and decided to give funny business a shot. He wasn‘t a stranger to the stage. While living in metro Detroit, Young performed with a hip-hop group TKO and he wrote and performed songs for the Detroit Red Wings and other sports teams. “The entire time, I knew this is what I was meant to do,“ said Young. So he set his sights on comedy.

He performed with Second City in Chicago, Groundlings in Los Angeles and soon found improv wasn‘t his thing and turned his sites to stand-up working his way from the ground up performing LA‘s Comedy Store.

Young now resides in Los Angeles and splits his time between comedy and writing and producing for television and film.

He has appeared on and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,“ “Last Call with Carson Daly,“ and Showtime.
