"Relaxed and confident stage presence"
Mike started his career by reaching the finals of the So You Think You’re Funny new act competition in 2000 and being a finalist of the City Life Comedian of the Year for North West acts the following year.
Now he’s a regular on the circuit and has supported such comedy greats as Peter Kay, Johnny Vegas, Ross Noble, Dave Spikey and Jason Manford on their UK tours and has been a member of the Comedy Store’s Manchester-based topical improv group Men at Work.
Overflowing with down to earth Northern charm, Mike has a wonderful laid-back style. The laughs come thick and fast with Wilkinson’s dry humour and razor sharp wit…but hecklers beware, that cheeky grin can lash out and crush a heckler at lightening speed.
As well as being very funny, Mike is also a talented musician and plays the piano and guitar.
Mike has performed on several TV and radio shows including Gagging For It (Granada), Live From the Albert Dock (Mersey TV) and Running Late (BBC).
When he’s not killing it on the comedy scene, he can be found working on his farm rearing his own hens, and often brings a gift of a few fresh eggs to the show.
