STAND UP COMIC
Stand up is my first love. Doing it (when it's going well) is truly amazing.
It's all the fun of being fascist dictator without the effort of a gulag.
“Gags written with elegant efficiency and delivered with a punchy style... waltzes around the potentially contentious with a self-effacing charm…”
Steve Bennett, Chortle
"Engaging irreverence... interesting, often graphic, occasionally surreal"
"...snapshots of Hicks or Louis CK shine through, but undercut by that Commonwealth wit and dryness."
View From The Gods
"Sparkling payoffs" ★★★★
“Does not shy away from any topic...has the crowd in stitches” ★★★★
"I was suddenly lost in Sheer’s world, in the tumbling energy of his avalanche rants…To be a participant in the world of his Godless and deceptively insightful imagination is a pleasure and an excitement"
On The Fringe
Canadian comic Mike Sheer’s focus on the moment means he blurs the line between compere and act – happy to give in to
sudden crowd-sparked inspiration amongst crisp and gag-heavy routines.
He’s performed at festivals, theatres, clubs, and pubs across twelve countries and counting.
Canadian comic Mike Sheer's comedy jumps from light to dark, smart to stupid, low-brow to high.
Audiences are on their toes while laughing off their butts.
With an engaging and affable stage presence, his focus on the moment means he blurs the line between compere and act – happy to give in to sudden crowd-sparked inspiration amongst crisp and gag-heavy routines.
He’s performed in twelve countries and counting. This includes opening, headlining and compering at theatres, clubs and pubs, as well as solo hours and compilations at festivals such as Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, and Melbourne Comedy Festival.
Screen appearances as a stand-up include MuchMusic (Canada)'s Video On Trial, BBC One's Are You Having a Laugh? - Comedy and Christianity, and Shorts.tv's Shorts International. But his magnum opus is as the kid who gets high and blows his head off in stoner classic Harold & Kumar Get The Munchies – a scene that's since become a cult favourite.
