Mike Keegan has had a passion for stand-up comedy for as long as he can remember. It all started by sneaking downstairs to watch comedy specials with his father who worked nights. Mike would recite the bits from his early icons such as Bobby Collins, Richard Jeni, John Pinette and Kevin Meaney any chance he could. In his teens, he started attending live shows at the local comedy clubs and studying the art. It wasn't until a trip to Ireland in college that he finally got on stage after a dare and more than a few pints of Guinness. After the first laugh, he was hooked!
After college and several unfulfilling jobs, Mike decided to get on stage a little closer to home. He started hitting the Long Island and NYC open mic circuits and networking with his fellow comics. Since then, Mike has been carving quite an interesting niche for himself. His affable stage presence and sharp wit have brought him to be seen regularly at The Comic Strip Live, Dangerfield's and Greenwich Village Comedy Club in New York City and he has been featured in Connecticut and the Poconos. He was a finalist in the "Funniest Comic on the East Coast" at Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino and has performed at the Borgata in Atlantic City. He produces several independent monthly comedy shows and is the Co-Host of "This Week In Things" podcast. Outside of stand-up, Mike has also studied sitcom acting under television icon Richard Kline.
In his free time, Mike enjoys fishing, traveling and cuddling with all of the puppies.
