Mike Carrozza is a silly boy. Known for his high energy performance style, Carrozza has gotten to work with some of his favourite comedians and yours (Tig Notaro, Todd Glass, Kyle Kinane, etc). Born in Montreal, but based in Toronto, Carrozza has become an international headliner. His cherubic charm and absurdist leanings make him an act you don’t want to miss. Come giggle. I love you.
