Michael Davis didn't know it at the time, but he was going to become one of the very first stars in a genre that is now known as "New Vaudeville." When Michael graduated from high school, he went on to college, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey clown college that is. Sustaining himself on popcorn and cotton candy, he learned the art of clowning. After two years of traveling with the circus, he went on to master his craft as the king of the San Francisco street performers. The merchants in the area complained whenever Michael performed. Sales in their stores came to a stop as he mesmerized the audience. Once discovered on the street, he was thrust into the big time -- a Broadway musical called Broadway Follies, such a flop it closed as soon as it opened. Yet before he had time to pick up his props, Michael was snatched up by savvy producers to perform in the hit show Sugar Babies with Mickey Rooney and Anne Miller, winning a Theater World Award on the way.
An "overnight" sensation, television shows clamored for him as a guests with five show stopping acts on Saturday Night Live, multiple killer performances on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, his own Cinemax special "The Life of the Party" -- the list goes on and on. A favorite of presidents, he has performed for four of them as well as heads of state, including the Queen of England and Gorbachov.
He is one of the most popular performers in the corporate market (over 40 shows for IBM). With an act that not only brings tears of laughter but is appropriate for all ages and tastes, Michael Davis has a truly universal appeal.
The New York Times raves, "Mr. Davis is an inspired deadpan comedian. I was as close as I have ever been to rolling in the aisle with laughter. Nothing could top him." The Los Angeles Times supports, "An inventive performer that would bring the house down no matter where he worked … he drew a kind of laughter so gut-deep that it was disabling."
