Winner of the 2011 Seattle Comedy Competition!!
Mike Baldwin simply went out night after night and delivered top notch comedy. His style is instantly likable, entirely personal and it highlights his attention to detail. His material is crisp and perfectly efficient and he supplements that material with subtle but perfect facial expressions and vocal inflections. His dominance in this competition is best expressed this way: He won three of the six nights of his preliminary week. He won five of the six nights of the Semi-Finals (and barely missed winning that sixth Semi-Final show, too.) He won four of the five nights of the Finals (and the one night that the judges didn’t have him winning, the audience booed the decision and chanted his name.) And, despite his dominance, the other competitors this year couldn’t even be mad at him…not only because Mike is simply really nice but also because Mike is simply really funny.

Twice voted “Best Comedian in Kansas City”If you’re looking to have a great time at a comedy show, make sure that Mike Baldwin is performing. Considered by many to be one of the best young comics working the road today, Mike is a clever joke writer and one of a kind joke teller. Certainly a show you won’t want to miss. Mike is likeable and huggable and funny and worth seeing. Make sure you see him or book him now before he gets rich and famous and thinks he’s too cool to hang out with you!
Mike’s jokes are roughly based on his life. His self deprecating material makes him funny to laugh AT. Dating, breaking up, going to school, and watching TV are a few of the random things he’ll talk about. And also some stuff about living with his parents, moving out, and cool stuff you can do with some pot and a dog. He’s all over the place, but very funny! Mike Baldwin has been compared to Mitch Hedberg, Andy Kaufman, and Steven Wright. He’s been in the comedy business for 8 years. It has been said that he’s “the next Mitch Hedburg, without being TOO Mitch Hedburgy”.
