Mike and Alex have performed at clubs and showcases across the country, but it’s the Nerdcore Showcases where they feel most at home.Nerdcore Comedy celebrates your nerd heritage with all things comic books, RPGs, video games and most importantly that nerd sensibility we share in everyday life.
He’s Hispanic and can’t speak Spanish or whistle, so instead talks about Spiderman and online gaming. Michael’s a South Texas native that grew up in San Antonio, where years of comic books and video games made him a man who was bad at push ups. After realizing he wasn’t cut out for retail or customer service he pursued stand up comedy so that his wife and cats could get a break from him. He sucked at first but doesn’t anymore and has since become a staple of the Texas comedy scene. His comedy career has lead him to great opportunities working with amazing comics he looked up to like Jo Koy, Robert Kelly and Norm MacDonald. He’s also appeared on Tru TV thanks to an incident at A-Kons Cosplay Contest a few years ago. He regularly performs at clubs and colleges across the country and is an organizer of the Nerdcore Comedy Show, which showcases at media conventions and private events across the country. He started the annual A-Kon Nerdcore comedy show to show that nerd comedy is more than memes and recycled internet jokes. He is currently working on his Suarosaur Youtube Channel.
