Mike has a wealth of experience on both the national and international comedy circuits, delivering his delightfully sharp observations and quick wit to audiences from South Shields to Singapore. Equally at home at regular comedy nights, after dinner speaking, and more recently kids comedy clubs.

Mike has performed to sold out shows at the Newcastle Comedy Festival and regularly performs [sets and compering] at The Stand, Hyena Comedy Cafe, and Jongleurs. As an after dinner speaker and entertainer, Mike provides a successful blend of material and audience interaction that can be tailored to the needs of most events or clients, and a delivery that will ensure the crowd remember the night for a long time.

On the after dinner circuit, Mike has worked with Kate Adie, Rory Underwood, Bruce Grobbelaar, Alan Kennedy, and Norman Whiteside, to name a few. He has also hosted a celebrity snooker match between national champions John Higgins and Graeme Dott.

Mike writes a popular weekly column in the Evening Chronicle (Newcastle) that he is currently adapting into a solo show. As a writer and performer Mike has worked on Spender, Byker Grove, and various Catherine Cookson dramas. In addition to providing the famous voiceover for Viz Comic’s Sid the Sexist DVD and in the flesh at Newcastle City Hall, Mike also had acting roles in Ken Loach’s award winning movies ‘I, Daniel Blake‘ (2016), and ‘Sorry We Missed You' (2019).

Mike performs for a number of professional clients, from comedy clubs to corporate bookers, through to TV and film agents.
Fresh, entertaining and engaging….. He unified a very broad range of clients into an audience with hilarious material and improvisation. I have already booked him for next year’s annual dinner


Institute Of Directors
Brilliant. Mike judged his delivery and material exactly right for the audience at this very important presentation. They all thoroughly enjoyed the show


M.D Newcastle Federation Breweries
It’s pretty much impossible for a comedian to please all 150 guests at a corporate event, especially when the organiser tells him not to swear or use any blue jokes! Nonetheless, Mike Milligan did a great job of this; I choked on my food several times as I laughed so much. He’s a very funny man and highly recommended


Finance Director & company secretary, Hills Electrical & Mechanical Group
Brilliant… this has been one of the best compere performances I’ve seen at this club since it opened four years ago and we have had most of the U.K circuit out here


Manager of 1 Nite Stand Club, Singapore
He had a marquee of 300 people eating out of his hand and p*ssing themselves laughing. We’d booked him for next years do before he left the venue


Shotley Bridge Cricket Club
Mike was excellent. He thoroughly entertained a mixed audience at our black tie AGM event for nearly an hour. The feedback from the guests was extremely positive

Richard Hinton

Chairman Welsh Faculty of Building
Absolutely brilliant evening with Mike. From the minute he started, Mike had the room in stitches and some crying with laughter. You are guaranteed a night to remember... even if you are one of the guests he targets!

Richmond (Yorks) Golf Club
Mike, thanks for doing a great job on Saturday night, must be tough coming on to a sober audience first up and getting the evening going but you did a fantastic job and Ive had great feedback from the people who were there.
