Comedy Plex Presents: Mike Maxwell

Mike Maxwell 

Mike Maxwell is a Chicago area comedian, writer, and actor. Mike has been a regular guest on WLS-890 and WGN-720 AM and was a featured writer for the Tribune’s RedEye newspaper. Although he performs nationally, Mike is a regular at the Zanies and the Chicago Improv. His comedy style is an upbeat level of sarcasm and emotion covering many personal moments the audience may have experienced as well.

Mike recorded his debut comedy album ‘Wait it out!’ at Zanies Rosemont in October of 2023. It is in post production with a 2024 release date to be scheduled. In 2021, Mike Maxwell performed in the World Series of Comedy advancing to the semi-finals of the House of Comedy satellite. Mike was one of three comedians selected to the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival. Third Coast Review caught his performance and noted ‘Maxwell is a guy you can’t help but like, and his relatability and charm are immediately obvious in his set.” 

Aside from touring to clubs across the US, Mike has headlined dozens of corporate shows and events for such notable companies as the NFL/Ford, Twitter, Allstate, Salesforce, Snapchat, and the Boy Scouts of America, among many more.

Outside of stand up comedy, Mike is a writer, producer and performer of several projects. He was a featured columnist for the site Football Absurdity. The debut of his mock new hire orientation ‘The Anti-Boss’ was at the Chicago Sketchfest, Laughfest, and Fringe Festival. The Chicago Reader called it ‘a nimble, delightfully dispiriting hour.’ Mike’s acting credits include regional commercials for Ford and J.U.L.I.E. as well as a non-speaking role with ESPN’s Eli’s Places.
