This week, Ira spoke with Mike E. Winfield.
Mike E. Winfield, headlining at the Laugh Factory in the Tropicana Las Vegas through January 24, has not slowed down since his debut on “The Late Show With David Letterman,” followed by a reoccurring role on NBC’s “The Office.”
The Baltimore native got his comedy start in California’s state capital, starting off at an open mic night at Sacramento State University, where he graduated with a B.A. in English. He caught the comedy bug. Why Sacramento? According to Winfield, “If they want you, they’ll find you.”
Winfield was a semifinalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and has won various comedy competitions across the country. He has appeared on Showtime’s “Comics Without Borders,” Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” and “The Arsenio Hall Show.”
He has remained true to his school, continuing his habit of writing daily (learned from his English classes) and has become a one-comedian content provider.
