Michael Finney is magician and
stand-up comedian rolled into one.
|Michael Finney with
Richard De La Font
Sometimes he spends more than 40 weeks on the road. That is okay,
because now he is enjoying a successful career on the comedy club circuit, corporate
dates, national television appearances and plenty of time on the golf course life
truly is a bowl of cherries for this funny man.
Often mistaken for a professional wrestler, Michael enjoys
the extra attention. With a flat top haircut gone awry, his appearance is as unique as his comedy.
He is a recipient of the Silver Lions Head Award
from Siegfried & Roy for his comedy magic. In 1988 he was a
"Star Search" finalist which opened doors for appearances as the opening act for
such headliners as Dionne Warwick, Frankie Beverly & Maze,
The Marshall Tucker Band
and Gary Wright.
His television credits include Fox-TV's "Comic Strip Live,"
A&E's "Evening at the Improv," "Showtime Comedy Club Network,"
"Sunday Funnies," "Comedy Express," "Comedy On the Road"
"Comedy Central" and "Entertainment Tonight."
Michael has appeared with Jay
Leno, Garry Shandling, Elayne Boosler, Bob Saget and many others.

performance at the Baltimore Marriott Hotel. The entire Baltimore Region of Miles, Inc.,
sales representatives and managers thoroughly enjoyed the program. Everyone commented how

-- Lynne Murphy, Regional Sales Manager
- Sherwood Country Club:
"I wanted to take the time to thank you for
taking time out of your busy schedule to entertain us during our annual Member-Guest
Your style, wit and magic were perfect for
our event. As you know, we have a very high profile membership, many of which are
involved in the Hollywood scene. They tend to be very critical and can make it tough to
perform. You passed the test with flying colors. The comments from our members and their
guests were numerous and everyone was positive.
In summation, you were a huge hit!
I hope someday you can come back again and perform for us. Please feel free to use
Sherwood and myself as a reference. Who knows, maybe we could get you back here for Greg
Norman's Shark Shootout. Thanks again!" -- Paul
Celano, Director of Golf
