Mike Burton
Comedian Mike Burton at Old York Cellars

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 TV variety show “The Fringe” that features up and coming comics and bands. Soon I’ll 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”. 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.

After 1 year of doing live comedy in the tri state area the world shut down from Covid.

Jessica embraced the online comedy world and continued to work throughout the year with comedians and venues nationwide.  Doing zoom comedy shows is how she gained exposure which landed her a live spot in the nationally acclaimed showtime special, Funny Women of a Certain Age.  Jessica also won first place on the Comedy Therapy Invitational, a month-long competition that began with 64 comedians and came down to Jessica as the winner in April 2021.
