When it comes to your corporate function, you demand the best in everything – from the venue to catering to your guest list. While searching for the finest in entertainment for your event, nothing beats royalty. Comedian, actor, and writer, Mike MacDonald is dutifully hailed as the “King of Canadian Comedy”. Perfect for your upcoming keynote, convention, or celebration, Mike is guaranteed to make your special function a royal, side-splitting affair.

With an illustrious career spanning over 30 years under his belt, chances are both you and your intended audience will recognize Mike. He’s appeared on a number of TV shows, specials, and the famous late-night circuit, including Late Night with David Letterman and The Arsenio Hall Show. Working closely with the CBC and Showcase, he’s also written and starred in his own critically acclaimed specials entitled Mike MacDonald: On Target, My House! My Rules, and Happy As I Can Be. On its own, these achievements are impressive, but add to these the fact that Mike is the only comedian to perform at every single Just For Laughs show, and you’ve got the making of a singularly remarkable career.

Quick-witted and matter of fact, Mike is able to turn any topic into a hilarious conversation piece. Indeed, difficult subjects like his recent battles with mental illness and Hepatitis C are springboards for a hysterical set, making him especially perfect for health benefits and medical conventions. In fact, he works closely with the advocacy groups Standup for Mental Health and the Canadian Liver Foundation.

Despite once having faced critical health problems, Mike effortlessly draws in his audiences without seeking their sympathy. Mike navigates these challenging issues with ease, making his experiences relatable and – most importantly – funny! In 2013, only two years after his diagnosis of Hepatitis C, the disease was serious enough to shut down his kidneys and liver, and in that year, Mike underwent a full liver transplant. It necessitated a long period of recovery during which he re-evaluated the important things in his life. Family, his wife, and comedy came out on top. Renewed and armed with even more material from his experiences, he’s back in top form as the king.

As a veteran of the comedy circuit, Mike would make the ideal comedian for any event, but he also makes an excellent choice as your function’s emcee. With experience hosting the Gemini Awards and the Just For Laughs 10th Anniversary Special, Mike can entertain any crowd with ease, naturally moving your event along and eliciting laughter.

When you want something done right, you contact the professionals. The same goes for the entertainment for your upcoming event.

Since Mike is a busy man travelling North America, it’s a good idea that you speak with us, your connection to the corporate entertainment world.
