over 9 years ago

Mike Drucker is a stand-up comedian and staff writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, not necessarily in that order. Before landing his "dream job" at Late Night, Mike was a contributing writer for The Onion and Saturday Night Live as well as a localization writer for Nintendo... whatever the fuck that is. He's appeared in comedy festivals around the world including the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival where he was featured in the fancy "New Faces" showcase. Now he joins J.R. to share many fantastic comedy writing insights and thoughts and methods and feelings and tricks and even a few treats. It's the bird's eye view of what it's like to be Mike Drucker that you've been looking for all your life! Mike currently lives in Brooklyn with more than 200 video games and a woman who is real.
