So far, he's won a few rounds of a local comedy competition at Tommy T's in Roseville, California. Lately he's been also frequenting one of my favorite downtown spots, Luna's Cafe, which has a comedy night every Wednesday, hosted by the incredibly handsome and witty Keith Lowell Jensen (and yes, he paid me to say that.)
When Michael isn't playing comic on stage, or smoking a cigar, he's probably writing. You can find him on a number of blogs, including his "official" website, MichaelOConnell.com. You can also read his late-night rantings on his "official" blog, Michael O'Blogger. By now it's probably pretty obvious: Mike's a proud Irish-American. There are other obvious things, too, like what a natural he is on stage, doing his comedy bit.
For the local yokels, I really hope you get a chance to see him in action.

For my out-of-towners, I took the liberty of posting a YOUtube video of a bit that was filmed from a recent show. Hope you like.
