Full to the brim with down to earth Northern charm, Mike takes a bemused glance at the world and then throws it a smile. The laughs come thick and fast with Wilkinson's dry humour and razor sharp wit.
Mike's been a professional comic for 7 years and in that time he has supported the likes of Peter Kay, Johnny Vegas and Ross Noble, as well as headlining clubs all over the country. Mike has a laid back style onstage, but can crush a heckler in seconds. Mike is also an accomplished pianist and guitarist!
