Straight from "Tornado Alley" in Northeast Arkansas, Michael Brown has been bringing his dead on impressions, hilarious observations and down home, southern sensibility to talk radio, comedy clubs, charity events and corporate functions for nearly two decades.
Michael began comedy in his hometown of Corning, Arkansas during the late 80's by lip syncing a "Weird Al" Yankovic tune in a high school talent contest. Through much of the 90's, Michael turned his wide array of vocal impressions into voice over work for radio stations in Little Rock, Arkansas. He also shared his unique, comedic insights as producer and guest host for Little Rock's only News/Talk radio station.
In January 2004 a friend talked Michael into trying his skills at stand-up comedy at an open mic night at The Loony Bin, the lone comedy club in Arkansas. Instantly, stand-up comedy became Michael's main focus. Week after week he'd ply for 5 minutes of open mic stage time, working tirelessly on the art of stand-up.
It wasn't long before Michael hit the road and started stretching his comedy wings. After blowing away both audiences and judges alike in a Bloomington, Illinois comedy showcase competition, Michael started hitting his stride in stand-up comedy. Soon he was traveling across the Mid-West performing in comedy clubs, bars, hotels, colleges, and banquet rooms. For two years Michael was the most sought after comedian in central Illinois.
Now, back in his home state of Arkansas, Michael proved his comedy mettle by establishing himself as one of the 2009 "Arkansas' Funniest Person All-Stars". In 2010, Michael has hit the gas in his comedymobile and took the 2nd place Finalist position in the 2010 Arkansas' Funniest Person Contest. Also Michael's gift for comedy, voices and accents helped him land his first film role in the indy film "Step Away From the Stone".
Michael Brown can now be seen in comedy clubs, colleges and other venues across Arkansas and throughout the country.
