Florida’s Funniest Comedians: Mike Rivera and Michael Murillo
November 26 @ 7:30 pm
Ready for a night of non-stop laughter? Join Florida’s funniest comedians, Mike Rivera and Michael Murillo, as they bring the funny from across the Sunshine State with their hilarious show, FLORIDA’S FUNNIEST COMEDIANS, live at the Delray Beach Playhouse!
MIKE RIVERA- With nearly three decades on stage, Mike Rivera has established himself as a premier comedy attraction and consistent crowd-pleaser from coast to coast. Class is in session when this longtime teacher takes the stage, with his trademark “teachable moments” keeping the audience laughing night after night. The quick-witted comedian tears through a fast-paced set that highlights his likable stage persona and clever writing style. It’s no wonder that ABC’s The View named him “America’s Most Hilarious Teacher” in a nationally-televised comedy competition.
Whether he’s delivering a lesson to engaged students or taking them on a trip overseas, Rivera connects with his students the way a comedian connects with his audience– because he is a comedian, and he considers his kids to be the most important audience he faces. “Comedy is about finding common ground and reaching the audience in a personal and meaningful way,” Rivera said. “Teaching is no different, except the rewards continue long after the laughter stops.”
MICHAEL MURILLO- As an award-winning journalist, Michael Murillo used his writing skills to inform readers throughout his native Tampa Bay. As a stand-up comedian, he uses those same writing skills to entertain audiences around the country with a unique outlook on religion, relationships, and other topics you probably shouldn’t discuss in polite company. Mike has had the privilege of performing at top comedy clubs and opening for talented comedians such as Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, Judy Gold and Greg Fitzsimmons. With a mostly-clean yet controversial demeanor, his optimistic, self-deprecating humor continues to entertain all types of audiences.
