Critics and audiences agree, NY-based comedian Michael Che is a star on the rise. Named one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Funniest People in January 2013, his comedy uses humor to identify humanity in the most controversial actions. A native of lower Manhattan, Che applies street culture to world issues with a delivery that The New York Times describes as “a reflective, laid-back stage presence with jokes that draw as much from his city upbringing…as from blunt, insightful points that bring the abstract into focus.”
In October 2012 Che created, wrote and starred in the original web series “The Realest Candidate” on Broadway Video’s YouTube channel, The Above Average Network. On November 3rd, 2012, he made his Late Night television debut performing standup on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman. Che appears weekly on Vh1’s Best Week Ever and was featured on John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show on Comedy Central, Money from Strangers on MTV and as a recurring contestant on IFC’s comedy game show Bunk.
Che was crowned the winner of the New York’s Funniest Stand-Up competition at the 2012 New York Comedy Festival, and both Time-Out NY and Comedy Central have listed him as one of their “Comics To Watch.” He headlines comedy clubs and colleges nationally and internationally, and will be featured this year at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Moontower Comedy Festival, Bonnaroo, and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
