In a career spanning over 2 1/2 decades, Michael has brought his hilarious insights on life, marriage, parenthood and the evolution of humanity to ''A'' list comedy clubs, casinos, country clubs, & backwoods bar rooms from coast to coast and border to border. (There was even a backyard bachelorette party) Michael''s radiant energy and personable stage presence earned him an invitation to showcase for Network execs in LA, who urged him to leave Minnesota to further his career. "you''re the funniest thing out of the Midwest, now get out of the Midwest." - Rick Messina, Messina Baker Entertainment Corp. But if Prince could stay in Minnesota, so could he. So it''s dad by day, comic by night.

Thorne hails from a burrow of Minneapolis quaintly referred to by its
inhabitants as "Nordeast". He grew up there before it was the hip,
artsy community after which a beer was named. A product of an un-chlorinated
gene pool consisting of factory workers and English teachers, he considers
himself "cultured white trash". "My GED is framed in

youngest of 5 siblings, (some blood, some step) he was often overlooked or left
to his own faculties to find his way. " Out of great pain, comes great
art. Van Gogh and Jackson Pollock were tortured souls whose struggles
manifested themselves in breathtaking oil paintings. Billie Holiday was an abused
little girl whose voice rang with joy and anguish. Richard Prior grew up in a
brothel watching his mother turn tricks and he made our stomachs ache with
laughter about it with his brilliant turn of a phrase. Some mild neglect and
Michael Thorne has a mediocre comedy career. Man, if my parents would''ve locked
me in a closet and kicked my ass once in a while, I might be

realized Had a party, that everyone was staring at him for his next word after
riffing with friends. " you''ve got to do something with that."
Someone said. "What?" He said. "You''re really funny!" So
instead of pursuing the radio broadcasting career he had just finished school
for, Michael put together 3 minutes of the goofy cartoon impressions and little
brother stories they had laughed at and brought them to an open stage at The
Comedy Gallery in Uptown Minneapolis. That has lead to a career of one crazy
story after another over the last 2+ decades, sharing the stage with such comic
legends as the late Bill Hicks, Steven Wright and the late Mitch Hedberg. After
a brief stop in the corporate World, to qualify for a home, Michael now enjoys
the balance of being a home dad, sobriety, and being a comedian.
