With appearances on CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, the syndicated TV series Comedy.tv, two of his own prime time stand-up comedy specials, and regular performances in sold-out clubs and theaters, Michael Gelbart has established himself as a nonchalant, audience-friendly comedian who meshes hilarious ad-libs with inventive, irreverent material.

Canadian-born Michael started his comedy career while still in high school. After graduating from broadcasting school, he landed his own episode of the CBC series Comics—his first national exposure showcasing his talents as a performer and writer. A second TV special followed, as well as numerous jobs writing and performing for national awards shows. He later wrote and co-starred in The Weinstein Company DVD "A Very Cool Christmas," which airs annually on Lifetime. Michael currently writes for a number of shows airing on Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Teen Nick, and Nickelodeon including "The Latest Buzz," where he also plays a character based on himself.

He also has taken two separate ten vows of silence at Buddhist meditation retreats, which have served in re-establishing his commitment to creating and making people laugh.

Currently based in Los Angeles, Michael continues to perform all over North America, and has several screenplays and original series in development. Michael recently published his first novel, The Other Oprahs.

**Two NEW live listeners will have the opportunity to win one of two books Michael has graciously agreed to give away!
