Comedians You Should Know
Drew Michael grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. His parents divorced there and he grew up resenting ever being brought into this planet. He went to school at the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign due to high test scores, parental coercion, and a lack of a reasonable alternative. After playing video games in lieu of attending class for two years, it was on this campus that Drew got hooked on the drug that is stand up comedy. After a series of unsuccessful open mics, Drew decided to drop out of Engineering school in order to pursue stand up comedy full time. He moved back home to the suburbs with his mother and drove to and from the city of Chicago every night in order to bomb at open mics. Over time, he started bombing less and less. Eventually, he moved to the city so he could be closer to the heart of the stand up scene and refine his act. Once he started killing for extended periods of time on a regular basis, he sat down and wrote a bio in the third person. Since his first time on stage, Drew has been passionately honing his craft and his voice. He performs anywhere that will let him, between 7 and 10 times per week. His unique blend of personal experience and brutally honest insight creates a uniquely hilarious experience. Ripping through the superficial layers of life, Drew shreds the larger, more fundamental elements of life with his sharp perspective. His aim is to inspire and enlighten as well as entertain. He is a complete open book, sharing a truly original outlook, and you will not see anyone like him on the circuit. Working in Chicago and the Midwest for over 2 years, Drew is perpetually refining and expanding his voice, taking on new topics as they are experienced. His hard work has payed off as he was privileged to open for world-renowned comedians such as Paul F. Tompkins and Jim Jeffries. Drew has quickly become a staple of the underground stand up scene in Chicago, and co-produces the local, independent Chicago showcase The Comedians You Should Know Show. He has performed in just about every venue in Chicago, and is starting to make his name on the national club scene, his rapid rise propelled by his unparalleled dedication.
