Austin-based comedian and voice-over actor Mike MacRae began performing stand-up in 1999 and soon developed his own trademark style of blending impressions and voices into stand-up. He has performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, “The Late Show with David Letterman”, NESN’s “Comedy All-Stars”, and was a full cast member on the TBS sketch show “Frank TV”. Mike has been a part of the Master’s Showcase at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and has also performed at the SXSW, Moontower, and Limestone Comedy Festivals. As a regular on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom Show” he has toured theaters across the country as part of their All-Stars Tour.
Mac Blake comes from the bearded streets of Austin, Texas. Blake is a past winner of the Funniest Person in Austin contest and has performed at the New Faces of Comedy Showcase at Just for Laughs Montreal, the Moontower Comedy Festival, and Funny or Die's Oddball Fest. Splitsider named him one of “The Top Up-and-Coming Comics Outside of NY and LA”. He hosts the monthly stand-up showcase Six Shooter and is a regular performer with movie-mockers Master Pancake Theater. He has a family that's so beautiful it hurts your eyes to look at them, so please don't ask to see pictures.

He has hosted multiple shows of his own in Austin including Ground Floor at Hotel Vegas and Beamed Inn at Spiderhouse Ballroom.
