In 2009 Michael was crowned national champion of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s ‘Raw Comedy’ competition, a much coveted prize which attracts more than six-hundred entrants each year. The next year he starred in the prestigious ‘Comedy Zone’ showcase.

In 2010 Michael also brought his debut Festival show ‘The Ogre’ to Sydney and Perth, where it won the Wild West Comedy Festival award for ‘Best Show.’

In 2011 Michael’s Melbourne debut ‘Humans are Beautiful’ won the award for ‘Best Newcomer’ and received significant critical acclaim. The show also toured to Sydney Festival and to Edinburgh that same year.

2012 saw Michael become more experimental, and he produced the multimedia narrative comedy ‘Mercy,’ which won ‘Best Comedy Show’ at the Adelaide Fringe that year, and was the only comedy to receive an award for excellence in the Sydney Fringe. ‘Mercy’ also toured to Perth and Melbourne, and overseas to Edinburgh, wrapping for the final time in the Soho Theatre, in London’s famous West End. The show was also filmed and aired on ABC2 for the ‘Warehouse Comedy Festival’ series. It was one of the most popular episodes in the series, and the DVD was released that same year.

2013 was a good year for Michael. His beautiful and highly anticipated new show ‘Ave Loretta’ made its official debut in the 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He also took the show to Sydney Comedy Festival and received impressive reviews for both seasons. Michael also took ‘Ave Loretta’ to the Perth Fringe Festival in late January this year, and been nominated for the APN Outdoor Comedy Award and the West Australian Arts Editor Award.

He also turned his hand to writing for the second series of the ABC TV’s show Tractor Monkeys, and played a guest role on Peter Helliar’s hilarious ABC-TV series, It’s A Date.
