Mike McGee

http://www.mikemcgee.net/

"Mighty" Mike McGee is a well-traveled funny hobo-poet from San Jose, California. He has been a force in Bay Area spoken word since 1999. His reach expanded internationally after winning the 2003 National Poetry Slam Grand Championship. McGee soon after embarked on an international poetry and comedy tour, which has taken him to venues and festivals all over Europe, Canada and the U.S. He has since become a favorite performer to many schools around the U.S. and was one of the first Americans to perform at the University of Paris (La Sorbonne) and Glastonbury, the largest music festival in the world. McGee travels roughly 100,000 miles a year to make people laugh, think and cry with his brand of "stand-up poetry."

McGee is a co-founder of the live spoken word groups Tons of Fun University (TOFU), The Whirlwind Company and Electric Whale/Junkyard Ghost Revivals.

Mike has a mighty appetite, an uncanny relationship with ladybugs, several tattoos and siblings, and a passable Scottish accent. He breathes somewhere between Silicon Valley, California and Vancouver, B.C. as often as possible. Mike thoroughly enjoys weather, beverages, the number 3, and the scent of mock orange blossoms in the spring. Welcome back. Live love. Feel free.
