BandComedySpoken Word


Being the son of a Latina Model and a Jewish Banker, Michael Magid always knew his cultural background would lead to a career in entertainment or many years of emotional therapy. After quickly realizing that his sole purpose in college was to remain academically eligible for the soccer team; Michael left the hallowed halls of academia and moved to Los Angeles where he currently resides. Michael is a graduate of the Second City Conservatory and is a co-founder of the sketch comedy group “Recycled Babies” (www.recycledbabies.com) He currently can be seen performing stand-up comedy throughout the Greater United States of America , and structuring run on sentences and sentence fragments. Oh he’s also done some stuff on TV and in films, but let’s be honest in this day and age, who hasn’t. Did I mention that he writes too? Oh, well he does. Is that less than 100 words?
