In 2009, Michael auditioned for Friday Night Face Off, the longest running and popular improv show on Long Island. Going up against 25 others who bared head shots, acting resumes, and years of stage experience, all Michael brought was his leather jacket, New York Yankees hat, and hopes in finding a new hobby that he could grow and love. As a result, 3 people from the audition were called back and brought in on an intern basis, Michael being one of them. When given reason why, Michael was told that he has the natural talent and ability. In 8 months time, Michael went from intern, to tech, to full-time performer. Since 2009, Michael has performed in various different improv shows including the popular BATSU! NYC, Murder Mysteries, Stand-Up, and continues to perform in Friday Night Face Off every Friday.
