Michael McDonald is not a singer. That’s the other guy. He is also not a professional fighter. That’s the other other guy. He’s also not an abusive unemployed alcoholic. That’s some of the rest of the Michael McDonalds out there.

You’ve found the one who is best known for his ten years playing freaks on Mad TV. Michael got his start writing and performing for free at the famed Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles. His first paid writing and acting jobs came from Concorde Pictures, Roger Corman’s infamous low-budget movie studio.

Starting as an extra, McDonald landed dozens of roles in terrible movies. He eventually moved behind the camera to write and direct more terrible movies. Roger Corman still owes Michael money. Since those early poverty stricken years, Michael has divided his career into as many tiny hard-to-reassemble pieces as possible.

    I’d love to win these tickets for my wife’s b-day which is on 6/15, because it’s just a couple days away and I haven’t figured out anything cool to give her. We are both fans of Michael and MadTV.

  27. Kyle June 13, 2013 at 2:11 pm #

    My wife just had double jaw surgery 2 weeks ago. She is in need of a good laugh, and something to distract her from the recovery. She is well enough to laugh, just has her jaw wired shut. We both are huge fans of Michael McDonald.
    Thank you for considering us!

  40. Darrin June 13, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    He was my favorite Mad TV actor!

  41. Emily June 13, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

    Yes please!

  42. Brian June 13, 2013 at 4:40 pm #

    I would prefer to watch the abusive alcoholic fight the professional singer but I would settle for this guy.

  43. Victoria Gantz June 13, 2013 at 4:41 pm #

    Michael McDonald was our favorite actor on Mad TV. He had polish and panache, which means he often carried the show. I would love to see him live on-stage, and hope he’ll end up on another regular variety/comedy show soon…

  44. Chris P June 13, 2013 at 4:41 pm #

    This would be an awesome surprise date night!

  45. ann June 13, 2013 at 4:59 pm #

    Happy Father’s Day, Dad!!!

  46. Donna June 13, 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    This would be a great present for my son and daughter-in-law. Would help make up for my moving so close – into their basement.

  47. Hilary Andriesian June 13, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    I want to enjoy a Stewart Stew. I love this guy. He’s got that look…like Will Ferrell…I just look at him and start laughing. Mad for Stewart…and the rest of Mike McDonald’s farmhouse of characters.

  48. [email protected] June 13, 2013 at 5:22 pm #

    hellz yeah! been too long since i got me some comedy (other than cracking myself up, which doesn’t take much, for better [when alone] or worse [around me peeps]). help me reciprocate their patience by taking one of ’em friday, please:)

  49. Steve Ferrero June 13, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

    This gets the family off the hook for Father’s Day. I’d love to go!

  50. Leonard June 13, 2013 at 7:02 pm #

    My favorite Mike McDonald!

  51. don June 13, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

    I would love these tickets because::: I am Stewart. I appear normal to all around me, but I want to scream,,, noooo, stop it,, on the bus, when stinky man wants to know my sign, in the bathroom, when I’m at the Urinal and billy bob wants to chat, at coffee people when all I want is a damn green tea frap, no whip cream ( and they want to convince me that their whip cream is animal and enviromantally friendly) I say Noooo, Stop it.

    my mother was in all ways wrong and right, stewies mom.

    I think, therefore I am, I think.

  52. Bob LeBla June 13, 2013 at 8:56 pm #

    Knock, knock.. Who’s there? Michael Mcdonald. Michael Mcdonald who? Gimme dem tickets! *Please* :) I know that was a terrible joke, but it was the best I could do with 45 seconds of thought. He is Stewart from Mad TV and HE is good at joke telling.
