ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When I was in Kindergarten, I arrived at school one morning to find my classmates standing outside and the school doors still locked. The teachers were chatting in the lounge and forgot to open the building. I decided if they could open school whenever they felt like it, then we would enter when we were good and ready. In a rousing speech, I convinced the entire class to sit in the middle of the playground and refuse to come inside. The principal called my parents to report that I had "led a rebellion". It was my first unofficial performance.

In sixth grade I wrote, directed and starred in a karate sketch for school talent show. I thought it would be really cool if I entered the scene with smoke rising all around me so, before my entrance, I lit a smoke bomb. Much to everyone's surprise- including my own-- the room quickly filled with toxic smoke, triggered the fire alarms and the entire was school was evacuated. At my parents request, I took a break from the arts until they were no longer legally responsible for me.

As such, it was as a Freshman at the University of Notre Dame that I first tried stand-up comedy. I tackled groundbreaking topics like airplanes and cafeteria food, people laughed and I was hooked. I started performing around campus- emceeing the annual Football Pep Rally and just jumping on stage at a dance to tell jokes.

Upon graduation, however, I knew I had to get serious about life. (Actually, my dad said so.) I moved to New York City and got a job at an advertising agency... it did not go well. The company expected me to be there at 9am, regardless of how late I was out the night before, and my neck was getting irritated from shaving every day. I quickly announced my retirement and entered the world of entertainment.

Fresh, exciting...he's so inviting to me!
Delightfully entertaining and fresh. Not the same old stolen jokes you hear so many other comedians use. Michael is on fire! I laughed so hard milk came out of my nose...no really, it did.

A must-have!
I love this cd! It's hysterical and so true of the differences between men and women. I bought the cd a couple of weeks ago and my roommate and I have listened to it so often that we have it completely memorized--and good thing because now I sound hillarious when I quote him around my friends! This is definitely a must-have for intelligent comedy fans.

A very funny guy
This is a very good independent comedy CD by an excellent young stand-up comic who is both original in his take on mundane things and already adept at the segue and the recall and not somebody you want to heckle. Somerville also proves you can work clean and be very funny.
