MIKE GAFFNEY grew up in a tough New Jersey neighborhood where he quickly learned that he needed to get tough or get funny... He’s not that tough but Mike Gaffney is very funny. Mike's style of comedy is very conversational, discussing day to day life, not only as a single dad, but as a friend, son, uncle and all around good guy. Wherever he performs, Mike wins audience's love and respect with his personal take on life and fatherhood. He is always found to be very relate-able and likable and his high energy and quick wit will always keep audiences engaged and entertained.
Mike took to the stage at 32 which is a little older than most. He spent a few years grinding it out before taking the next step and in 2009, he decided that his love for comedy was too strong, so he hit the stage full speed ahead. He is a comedy club favorite up and down the east coast as well as NYC. You can hear Mike on his weekly podcast All in Our Heads.

Russell said it was a great set and he has a fresh take on raising them. Roseanne said he was getting pissed off and she was relating and she loved it.” - Todd Betzold (quotes from Last Comic Standing)
