Wexford, Ireland: May,1798. The United Irishmen rebelled against British rule. It was the most successful and destructive of all the uprisings throughout Ireland. What does this have to do with Wexford native, Mick Thomas? Well, absolutely nothing.

A decade ago, former European Kick-boxing champion, Mick Thomas, moved to New York and after a couple years of living in the US he started to pursue his life-long dream of stand-up comedy. Mick Thomas quickly became a favorite at comedy clubs all over Long Island, New York City, and the tri-state area. In addition to stand-up, Mick has written sitcoms and sketches, has his own podcast, "The Mick Thomas Show," and can be seen in "Excuse Me For Living" with Jerry Stiller and Christopher Lloyd.

Mick trained with The Upright Citizens Brigade for two years and headlined at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival in Asheville, North Carolina in 2013. Mick was the featured comic for the Celtic Thunder Cruise, and he tours Ireland annually, headlining clubs throughout his native country.

Mick regularly performs at Governor's Comedy Club, The Comic Strip, Mohegan Sun, Brokerage Comedy Club, The Stress Factory, Revels Casino in Atlantic City, McGuire's Comedy Club and Uncle Vinnie's Comedy Club. He has opened for comedy greats Colin Quinn, Louis Anderson, Jim Breuer, Dom Irrera, Greg Giraldo, Gary Gulman, and WWE legend Mick Foley. Mick's hour special, "Live at McGuire's" recorded in 2013, is hilarious and smart.

As Mick's idol Kermit the Frog said, "I've got a dream too, it's about singing and dancing and making people happy. That's the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with," and Mick is happy to be successful in pursuing his dream, and making audiences laugh with him, wherever he goes.
