About Michael Oldroyd

Whether it's been entertaining in school as the class clown, onstage or on the football field, I've always loved the spotlight. Hassled by nearly every teacher since kindergarten for his classroom distractions, I spent most of his time in detention (at least until high school when our football coach wouldn't let kids on detention play). I grew up impersonating my favorite childhood comedians, Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey for friends, family, and detention supervisors. 17 years ago, he started doing stand-up in 9th grade. His history teacher challenged him to try it in front of the class. He was always funny from the back of the room, but coming to the front of the class and doing stand-up was completely different. I was later voted Most Likely to Host SNL by his high school senior class of 300+ students.

Torn between my passion for winning the classroom over with laughter and my love for the game of football, I always went after both. In the fall of 2006, after 12 years of playing football, I walked onto the Missouri Tigers Football Team. I didn't make it onto the field in a real game at Mizzou, but he did enjoy all the free Gatorade on the sidelines. I did get to play in the spring football game in 2008 on National TV and caught a pass. It was my Rudy moment before retiring from a knee injury.

I have had a ton of support over the years, and I've been fortunate enough to be crowned the two-time back to back champion of Missouri's Last Comic Standing Competition at Deja Vu Comedy Club in Columbia, MO, and I was a member 2008 Cotton Bowl Championship Football Team. What an honor it was to be part of a team that was BCS Nationally ranked #1 in the nation at one point. Having two bowl rings with those teams at MU 2006-2008 is something that will always live with me. I've also performed all over the world at weddings, comedy clubs, and corporate events. This includes LA, Shanghai, Chicago, Tokyo, London, and Amsterdam. I currently live in New York City, and I am going all out for my dreams of bringing entertainment to you!
