Michael Palascak

Michael Palascak (Pal-a-sack) grew up in the small town of Wabash, Indiana and began his comedy career in Chicago.  His stand-up is clean, original, and funny.  On this past season of Last Comic Standing, Roseanne Barr called Michael, "a wonderful comic" and said that his "delivery was fantastic."  Keenan Ivory Wayans described Michael's comedy as "very sly, young, kind of dude-ish humor."  Norm Macdonald loved that Michael seemed authentic onstage to who he was offstage.  In his set, Michael makes fun of both the important and unimportant things-- his parents, his way-too-honest girlfriend,  Spirit Airlines, and T-Mobile.

He began his network television career with performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno within six months of each other.  His résumé has since grown to include two appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, a half-hour special on the inaugural season of Comedy Central’s The Half Hour, and advancing to the Top 5 of NBC's Last Comic Standing.   In addition, Rooftop Comedy released Michael’s debut comedy album Job Opening to the digital and audio world.  Michael would like to thank his family, friends, and Sam Howard for all their love, support, and for reading all the way to the end of his bio even though they already know him.
