Mike Lebovitz and Ryan Donahue are two New York comedians on a tour through the south!
RYAN DONAHUE BIO:
Since giving up on his initial dream of being Rhode Island’s finest catch-and-release tournament fisherman, Ryan has been inside the television on a few different occasions. In 2016 he made his late night debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and has since appeared as himself on both seasons of Crashing on HBO. Those are all of the occasions.
For the time being, Ryan makes most of his appearances outside of the television. In 2015 he was named one of the “New Faces of Comedy” by the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and has also been featured at the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, and the Great American Comedy Festival, among others. His grandparents tell him he should meet David Letterman. If anyone has seen David, please relay this information to him. Thank you.
MIKE LEBOVITZ BIO:
Mike Lebovitz began his comedy career at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He’s been delighting and confounding audiences with his intoxicating brand of wild-eyed humor ever since. Equal parts lovable and absurd, Mike’s act careens from topic to topic with the force of a runaway freight train with dubious couplings and a wheel that’s come loose. Audiences have described the experience as “spontaneous,” “joyful” and “slightly terrifying.”
Mike cut his teeth in Chicago (not as painful as it sounds), where he was a member of the popular collective Comedians You Should Know and a regular contributor to WBEZ’s weekly live literary magazine, The Paper Machete. He also co-curated (with his buddy Junior) Señorita Weiner’s Top Secret Humor Experiment and Ice Cream Social Club, Chicago’s longest-running clandestine, nomadic comedy showcase and the original members-only ice cream social.
A burgeoning international star, Mike has offended nostrils in Montreal as a “New Face” of the 2013 Just For Laughs, and in Switzerland where he won the international competition at the 2013 Montreux Comedy Fest. In 2014, Mike returned to Montreux as the “Godfather” of the competition and recorded his debut album, LEBO for Stand-Up Records. In 2015 he appeared on Season 9 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He lives in New York City with his lonely wife and three poor children.
