Moontower Comedy Festival: Mike Lawrence

Chris got a chance to hang out with comedian Mike Lawrence during the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas. Ideally, they should have spent the time talking about Mike’s really funny album, “Sadamantium” , his current tour or his own podcast, Nerd of Mouth. Instead we just geeked out about comics and comic movies for an hour. Much fun. Check it out…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
