About this Event
Hi it's me!! Mike Sheer, from the title of this gig. This is my debut album recording - and here's why I think you should come:
I'm a stand up comic from Canada that's performed in dozens of countries including Bahrain, Malta, and Serbia - which means people from a lot of different cultures have asked me if I know their aunt who lives in Ontario.
Besides live shows, I've done me on TV like BBC One's "Are You Having A Laugh? - Comedy And Christianity" and Canadian channel Muchmusic's "Video On Trial". Also, I was the kid who blew his head off in "Harold & Kumar Get The Munchies" - if you don't know what that is, ask someone at your local skate park.
I'm a thoughtful loudmouth blending sharply written gags with a freewheeling style and warm persona. Here are some reviews of me from various festival gigs over the years:
“Gags written with elegant efficiency and delivered with a punchy style... waltzes around the potentially contentious with a self-effacing charm” - Chortle
"Sparkling payoffs" ★★★★ - Scotsgay
“Does not shy away from any topic...has the crowd in stitches” ★★★★ - Adelaide Advertiser
"...snapshots of Hicks or Louis CK** shine through, but undercut by that Commonwealth wit and dryness." - View From The Gods (**written before Louis CK was bad news)
"An excellent thought provoking act" - ComedyConnoiseur, commenter on The List website
TL;DR : Yo I'm a worn & comfy boot of comedy, stick your foot in me and let's hop together away from all this fake news/real blues and into the unknown...
LOL (lots of love)
