Michael Burger, former Griffin tennis player, parlayed a career as a class clown into a well-established career as a comedian, and television talk-show and game show host.
Burger was well-known at Los Al for his penchant for donning Elvis costumes or mimicking Steve Martin’s act. After graduating he developed his own act and was soon booked to work cruise lines where he honed his original material and his audience interaction skills. All this with and soon earning a shot as the host of the ABC morning show, “Mike and Maty,” which he was hosting during his class’ 20th reunion.
Over the last thirty years, Michael has hosted many network television shows and made frequent appearances in Las Vegas and other topline live venues.
