A Top 5 finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Michael Palascak’s likability allows him to relate to his audiences in a real way, setting up huge laughs from his sharp, personal material. With a Comedy Central Half Hour special, over a million views on YouTube, and a new stand-up special on the Dry Bar app, The Chicago Reader wrote about Michael, “In a lot of ways, he represents the ideal antidote to the sort of unbridled cynicism that pervades much of contemporary stand-up.” Michael’s optimism continues in the new National Lampoon series The Bright Side, where he takes a positive stance on a negative topic streaming on YouTube.
