About Mike Freed
ABOUT MIKE FREED
Comedian, Attorney, Runner
Mike is a clean observational comic who counts as his influences Demetri Martin, Steven Wright, Mitch Hedberg and Jerry Seinfeld. He performs regularly at the Comedy Zone in Jacksonville, Florida and at other clubs and venues nationally. Mike is a Jacksonville transplant from Washington D.C. He is a father of five who became a comedian after rising to a level of success as both an attorney and an ultra-marathoner – mostly running to raise money for charity. In other words, Mike has a short attention span. His material is largely self-deprecating and draws on the trials and tribulations of being a little bald guy in a big person world and his role as a father, husband, lawyer and a runner. Mike’s material is fresh, regularly updated, sometimes intellectual and sometimes stupid, but always clever. His comedy sets are fast-paced, provocative and engaging. So, they are nothing like this biography.
Does doing comedy help with your legal practice?
Good question. Absolutely, there is nothing that courts appreciate more than sarcasm.
How does your family feel about your comedy?
They are hopeful that I will get all my talking and sarcasm out at the comedy clubs, rendering me a receptive listener upon my arrival home.
How would you describe your style of comedy?
Self-deprecating, like my life.
