A native of St. Louis, Mike MacRae moved to Houston in 1995 where he started performing stand-up at local college events. After getting out of school in 1999, Mike started going up at the legendary Houston Laff Stop and soon developed his trademark combination of insightful social and cultural commentary with uncanny, unique impressions. In 2001, Mike made his television debut on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend", and a year later he was selected "Best Local Comedian" by the Houston Press. 2003 saw Mike's debut on the nationally syndicated morning radio program "The Bob and Tom Show". Mike is now a regular favorite on the show and is a part of the "Bob & Tom Comedy All Stars" theater tour. In May 2007, Mike made his network television debut when "The Late Show with David Letterman' invited Mike to perform as part of "Impressionist Week". In addition, he was the national spokesman for "IvyBlock" and has lent his distinctive voice to dozens of popular anime cartoons, including "Super Milk Chan" on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. His first CD, "Hovercraft", was released in 2007.
In 2008 Mike got the call to join the cast of the popular late-night sketch show "Frank TV" on TBS. Along with Frank Caliendo and Freddy Lockhart, Mike uses his impression skills to explore the zone of insanity where politics, pop culture, and the media collide. Mike MacRae continues to be a regular performer in comedy clubs all across the country, and splits his time between Los Angeles and Austin, TX, where he lives with his fiance and her fucking cat.
