Mike Revenaugh – Hat enthusiast, Dog aficionado and man about town.

Mike is a comedy writer living in New York City. Raised in the frozen wastelands of Utica, New York, Mike’s earliest lessons in character building took the form of shoveling snow and mowing lawns. While an undergrad, Mike majored in psychology, minored in English, and spent all his free time in the Theatre Department, singing in choirs and playing supporting roles in their productions. He started writing sketches while a member of the Musical Theater Club to provide time for complicated costume changes. That was his first taste of putting words in other peoples’ mouths, and he found he liked it. After college, Mike moved to New York City to further his misguided pursuits.

While here in NYC, he has studied sketch comedy at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater in NYC and has received an MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. He’s also gotten married to the love of his life and has a nice apartment for the first time in his life - two things he can’t recommend highly enough.

Mike is currently writing several pilot scripts including animated and live action comedies, as well as a feature length supernatural mystery. Mike works with NYU Tisch’s Future Theatre Artists Program, where he teaches dramatic writing to emerging artists who are high school students. Mike’s work has been featured in the ABC Discovers Talent Showcase.

Mike’s projects tend to revolve around loneliness and alienation in the modern era. Fantastical and magical elements are sometimes used to highlight the humanity of character’s situations, and just how universal isolation can be. Humans are built to collaborate and communicate, and too frequently that is dismissed in our pursuit of status and power. True connection is key to human existence, and all of our gadgets and gizmos provide a poor substitute for that.
