Mike Milligan used to earn his keep as a teacher in Newcastle and so knows a thing or two about ‘audience interaction’. However this Geordie quickly found classrooms weren’t the best place to share his sharp, witty banter! Now firmly established as a top stand-up comedian, Mike’s teaching days are on summer vacation indefinitely.
Having proudly held the helm as resident compere at Newcastle’s Hyena Comedy Cafe, which was acclaimed as ‘ One of the top ten comedy clubs in the country’ (Daily Telegraph), 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 his one the best comics in the UK.
