His comedy is refreshing and relatable in a way that makes him a comedic genius. Hailing from Baltimore, MD, Mike E. moved to California to pursue comedy to escape the rough streets of Baltimore. When remembering how he found a gun under his Mom’s pillow as a child, and thought,
“I CAN’T WAIT FOR MY TEETH TO FALL OUT.”
The comedy scene felt natural to him and he raked up credits on shows like The Late Show with David Letterman. Mike also landed a reoccurring role on NBC’s The Office, Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo on Netflix and an Emmy Nomination. Winfield also has multiple movies in post production, one with the rapper DMX called PIMP. And somehow in the midst of rising to the top, he had to grow up quick because he fell in love and married an older woman with a child. That was actually the problem, he wasn’t ready to be a husband, so he made many mistakes, which he adamantly denies. He has since learned and developed a bond with his stepson, whom he jokingly refers to as ‘StepMAN’ because they’re close in age. He takes his ups and downs in his life and marriage and turns them into jewels he releases on stage.
Mike often jokes about age differences and his wife treating him like a kid. For instance, in the grocery store she yells in front of everyone, “You better not throw anything extra in the cart.” His response? “Well that’s hard for me to do while I’m sitting in it!!”
