Comedian Michele Balan pokes fun at Mr. Media! (It’s so easy!)

Michele Balan was one of the four finalists on NBC’s 2006 “Last Comic Standing.”

Voted one of the “Top 10 Comics” by Backstage in 2004, Michele Balan is a brash, New York stand-up comedian who has performed on Comedy Central as well as in top comedy clubs, theatres, festivals and on cruises all over the country.

Often told she was naturally funny, the Brooklyn native left a high-paying executive position at a computer company to pursue comedy–even though comedy has never proved as lucrative–and she has been performing ever since.

She got her start as a “female female-impersonator,” doing lip sync impressions of Bette Midler. Now people tell her she is like a “female George Burns.” Michele’s career hast taken her from The Improv in Los Angeles to Caroline’s on Broadway in New York City, and from the Montreal “Just For Laughs Festival” to the “Dinah Shore Women’s Weekend.”

Michele recently recorded the critically acclaimed DVD entitled “LIVE, Just Barely” at the famed Joe’s Pub, home to the public theatre and performers like Joan Rivers, Eartha Kitt and Leslie Gore.
