Immigrant. Engineer. Comedian.
Michael jokes about what it takes to be a Russian immigrant in America, how internet transforms people, and how ridiculous his dating life is.
Michael started his standup journey years ago by accident. He once got drunk at a bar in the Marina district and began yelling at a group of bros. He shouted: 'Standup, standup!' in his thick accent. Everyone else thought he was performing a comedy set and applauded. That instantly converted Michael into a standup comic. Since 2013 he’s been performing all over the US, Asia, and Europe. He regularly appears at comedy venues in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City.
After moving to San Francisco a decade ago Michael worked at a slew of Silicon Valley’s tech companies. Overtime he became a contributor to city's steady gentrification.
Michael wrode, directed, and produced following sketches.
