About Mighty Mike McGee

For those who don't know me, I am I toured incessantly from 2003 to 2013, performing poetry and humor all over the U.S. Canada and Europe. My writing slowed down and I lived out of a suitcase and a backpack for most of it. In that time, I lived back and forth between San José and Vancouver, Worcester, Portland and Bellingham—never in any city for longer than eighteen months. In 2014, I realized The Road was having a negative effect on my health, so I resettled in San José and stopped touring nationally. I still take trips along the West Coast and the occasional hop over to Europe to see family, but now all of my touring is done in and around the Bay Area.

I have now lived in the same house in downtown San José since 2014—the longest I have continuously lived in any house my entire life.

Before the pandemic, I performed, organized and hosted several poetry events and variety shows locally around San José, California. In 2018 and 2019, I was appointed the 5th Santa Clara County Poet Laureate, a title I am incredibly honored to have held.

I put a lot of work into my performances, my writing and my shows. Some months pay off monetarily, but they always pay off socially. Suffice it to say, these days have seen a lot less of both forms.

I currently write freelance for the Metro Newspaper and (from October 2021 to May 2022) I am teaching podcasting to elementary school students in San José for a few hours Monday through Friday. It's pretty amazing.

What I am offering to those who support me is the knowledge that your monthly support is literally helping me continue doing the work I love to do. You will also have the earliest possible look at my upcoming memoir project. My goal is to share my childhood, my early poetry years in San José, and my life on the road through stories I work out on private videos, podcasts, and written chapters—me telling you my story through a total multi-media experience. The finished product will likely be a published book and companion audio book. And you will get to have a say in how it comes together.

It may take a while. And I look forward all of it.

Thank you for your time and your patronage.
