Mike Wood –
Mike Wood was born (against his will) in St. Thomas, Ontario. He paid his way through university catching a catapulted cabbage on a spike on his head.
Mike has returned to Canada after living for almost a decade in London, England. While living in London, Mike was a regular at plenty of tiny East London comedy rooms nobody can be expected to have heard of. He was a semi-finalist in the Amused Moose UK New Comedian Of The Year, which is a big deal and you should feel bad about not having heard of it.
In the future, Mike will be trading shards of broken mirror for the physical affections of his fellow climate refugees. In the meantime, Mike plans to cram your face so full of laughter you almost forget about all the important stuff you should be doing.
