Michael is the "splitting image" of Robin Williams in both appearance and in personality and has won a host of look-alike contests. Robin Williams is the most widely recognized entertainer in the world. Robin is the winner of the 1998 Oscar as Best Supporting Actor from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences. His many movies include; Good Will Hunting (Oscar), Flubber, Jumanji, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire, Fisher King, Pópeye, Dead Poets Society, Peter Pan in Hook, Bird Cage, Mork & Mindy, and countless other films and television staring roles.
Michael uses his uncanny likeness to Robin Williams to present a clean, fun, comedic presentation. Michael is very popular on the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown. In the past year he has worked six months as the star comedian in the new show at the newly opened Orleans Hotel and Casino and for six months as star comedian in the show at the Flamingo Hilton/Laughlin. In order to pursue his acting career, he is currently an independent artist working locally, nationally and internationally on an individual corporate and show basis. He is available for corporate, individual show, film, television, movie, and personal appearances.
Although Michael can perform as the comedian Robin Williams, he is also an accomplished entertainer in his own right and sings a repertoire of over 2,000 songs from rock and roll and country, through standards and light opera. He has written and copyrighted over 50 Country Music Style Songs. With the addition of dancers and a live band (or sound tracks) Michael presents an entire Las Vegas quality live show. He owns his own sound and lighting system and can even provide the necessary staging for a complete production from set up to tear down.
Over the past ten years Michael has performed his very successful and popular Drug and Alcohol Awareness Program before more than 500,000 young people in more than 450 schools as well as to many corporations, institutions and prisons nationwide.
