City Steam And The Brew Ha Ha Present: Mike Burton - Seen on the TV series "The Fringe"

with Jessica Collazo

I grew up in North Carolina and Delaware,

listening to George Carlin, Eddie Murphy and Steven Wright. I moved to NYC after

college with a Theatre Arts degree in hand. I was between off-off-off Broadway

shows, waiting tables and bartending when I discovered that restaurant owners

are crazy and chefs are nuts and I couldn't tell one more lady what was in a rum

& coke. I needed to perform. Anyway, one day I woke up and decided to stop

talking about being a comic and actually do it. That night I paid $5 for five

minutes of stage time and have been doing it ever since. I've traveled all over

the country, met some fantastic people and made most of them laugh. This is the

best job I've ever had, including the Gap.



Since I've been in New York,

I've been in the music video "Softly" by Noelle Noelle, the independent film "In

21 Days" and I was also featured in the t.v. variety show "The Fringe" that

features up and coming comics and bands. I was lucky enough to be seen at film

festivals all over the country as Frank, who turns into a werewolf, in the

independent feature "4 for Dinner"; a comedy-horror from the award winning

director of "The Risen", Scott Klein. I also did an episode of Law and

Order:SVU; I was great as "Extra #187".



I've enjoyed performing at

colleges from Maine to the Dakota's, New Mexico, Florida, and Colorado. I've

done commercials for Hewlitt-Packard and Modell's Sporting Goods. I've been the

substitute warm-up guy for The Chew and Rachel Ray and recently I became the

full time warm-up guy for ABC's daytime talk show The Revolution with Tim Gunn

and Ty Pennington. When I'm home I perform in the clubs in New York City and

spend time with my family.



It has been said that I have the southern

roots that make me hospitable and enough New York in me to give me an edge.

Jessica Collazo

Jessica Collazo is not your average female comedian. Her unique sense of humor stems from her politically incorrect family, friends, and crazy jobs. She has been a vocalist since age 10 and the lead singer of a rock band since age 17. With her musical talent, she rocks the stage with hilarious song parodies, but tries to use her tattoos and "bad girl" image to hide her unhealthy obsession with kittens. Jessica has performed at all the major comedy clubs on Long Island and has been featured in comedy venues and colleges all over the the east coast. She has successfully produced several shows in NYC and Long Island, including the all female comedy show known as, "Girls, Uninterrupted." She has performed with sketch and improv groups, currently runs a weekly open mic, and was featured in Newsday and The Metro Newspaper.
