About

Mike!

Michael Brown digs comedy. Born in Melbourne, Australia; he grew up on a diet of Fawlty Towers, Full Frontal, and The Simpsons. These days he writes and performs improv, sketch, and standup in Chicago, Illinois. A full creative CV can be found on the Resume page.

This blog is his living notebook of comedy things related to sketch, standup, and comedy production that interest him and may interest you too – links, notes, videos, podcasts, and the odd promo or two. Michael blogs all about improv at Mike’s Secret Improv Blog, and about everything else at Down The Docks.

Mike’s Secret Comedy Blog Blog is powered by WordPress, and uses the Scrawl theme by Caroline Moore for Automattic. The man rocking a mic logo, the open book top and thumbs up icons are made by Freepik, and are licensed under CC BY 3.0. Michael’s headshot was taken by Andrew Watt.

Why is it a secret comedy blog? Because it’s separate to Down The Docks. Being separate means that it’s easier to find specific comedic information (I don’t have to tag every post #comedy), plus I can get all deep and nerdy about things.
