This week at the Comic Strip: Mike Burton!

Not only is comedian Mike Burton a favorite at the World Famous Comic Strip Live!, but he was also the first ever member of our soon-to-be-revived “Headshot Alley” feature here on Eighty Second & 2nd.

In honor of Mike visiting our club this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, I feel that his feature deserves to be revived. Enjoy!


When you visit New York’s famed Comic Strip Live!, one of the first things that you will notice is our vast collection of headshots collected from our alumni throughout the years. In this new feature, we will profile some of the hilarious comics that you can find on our famous walls.


Today we feature: Mike p. Burton


Since starting his stand-up comedy career in 1996, Mike p. Burton’s entertaining, intelligent and electric act has found its on way on stage at comedy clubs all across Manhattan and is an in-demand college attraction. A North Carolina native, Burton spent his youth listening to the stand-up comedy of Steven Wright, George Carlin & Eddie Murphy and after years of working odd jobs in the theater business decided to give his dream of stand-up comedy a shot. Since then he has quickly climbed the comedy ladder opening for internationally known talents Dave Chappelle, Emo Phillips & Jim Breuer. His high-energy, yet personable style makes him one of the best liked comics

Outside of comedy, Mike enjoys spending time with his family.

To see Mike’s hilarious comedy live and in person, check out his upcoming appearances on his calender.
