Mike Milligan used to earn his keep as a teacher in Newcastle and so knows a thing or two about ‘audience interaction’. However he quickly found classrooms weren’t the best place to share his sharp, witty banter! Now firmly established as a top stand-up comedian, he’s teaching days are on summer vacation indefinitely. As a native Geordie he has that natural, down to earth and lovable warmth in abundance and you can’t help but like him. Safe to say you’ll love his comedy as much as you love him. As a result, Mike is well versed in entertaining audiences from the toughest gigs, to after dinner speaking and corporate shows; providing a successful blend of material, delivery and audience interaction that make him one of the best comics in the UK.
