Michael McCusker is an improviser, actor and writer originally from Boston, MA.
At an early age and with an extensive background in live theater, he started his stand-up career at The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square. He was soon playing clubs all over New England including colleges and many a dive bar, where he wasn’t allowed to order drinks. Soon after, Michael got himself hooked on improvisation at Improv Asylum in the North End. Upon graduating from Bentley University, he moved westward to Los Angeles where he continued his improv education with iO West, Second City, UCB, and The Groundlings to name a few. He can be found performing regularly with iO Harold Team Cloudkicker along with Star Power, Comic Book Live! and Pride & Joy.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Michael’s appeared in numerous national commercials: Comcast, Pizza Hut, Bud Light, UPS, Taco Bell, Slim Jim, Fiat, Old Navy, MSN, Allstate, Fructis, Nokia, & Chase Bank.
Most recently, Michael has been cementing his own brand of comedy by writing and producing video sketch along with some fellow cohorts for Funny Or Die, YouTube, etc. He is currently working on a screenplay with his writing partner, Tommy Bechtold, and will be pitching an original, late night talk show to MTV within the month.
