Michael’s natural charm and cheeky, observational style has already seen him make an impact on the UK comedy scene. He’s the inaugural winner of the Komedia New Comedy Award and starred in the London finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2021 (BBC Three).

Michael’s burgeoning TV Career has seen him feature on the latest series Comedy Central LIVE (Comedy Central), The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV2) and the aforementioned BBC Comedy Awards (BBC Three). He has collaborated with Channel 4, appearing in their Jokes Only series on their Facebook & TikTok channels. Michael has also written and performed original sketch content in partnership with LadBible UK.

His radio credits include the Capital Xtra’s Breakfast Show, BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club and stand-up on Radio 4’s Fred at the Stand.

As well as performing comedy, Michael works as a junior doctor in the NHS and is currently on a sabbatical from his surgical training. His medical background means he’s also in demand as a health commentator, appearing both on TV (BBC Two’s Newsnight) & Radio (Times Radio).

Michael’s 2022 Edinburgh Fringe debut was success, with his show ‘No Scrubs’ selling out the run and culminated in a nomination for NextUp’s Biggest Award in Comedy. The subsequent UK tour in early 2023 was a hit and the critically acclaimed show is now available to view as a special on Michael’s YouTube channel.

Michael can be seen live, performing at the top comedy clubs in the country not limited to the Comedy Store, Glee Club and Komedia. He’s also a well sought after corporate act, whether performing or hosting and his previous clients include Apple UK, Spotify UK & NHS England.

Michael is currently preparing for his sophomore tour in 2024 and has other exciting projects in development.
