Mike Burton grew up in North Carolina and Delaware, listening to George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, and Steven Wright. He moved to New York after college with a Theatre Arts degree in hand. He did some off-off-off Broadway shows while waiting tables and bartending. Comedy was always something Mike wanted to do but never followed through with so one day he woke up and decided to stop talking about it and actually do it. That night Mike went to an open-mic paid $5 for five minutes of stage time and he’s been doing it ever since.
Mike Burton has been lucky enough to do some plays, a music video, a variety show “The Fringe”, some independent films and a couple of commercials. He was the regular warm-up for daytime talk shows The Revolution and Bethenny while also subbing in at Rachel Ray, The View and Dr. Oz.
Mike travels all over doing stand-up from Maine to New Mexico to Florida and the exotic Dakota’s as well as working on cruises all over the sea. He recently taped a Drybar comedy special.
It has been said that Mike Burton has the southern roots to make him hospitable and enough New York in him to give him an edge.
