Michael tried standup comedy on a dare while a student at the University of Notre Dame. He was soon emceeing Fighting Irish pep rallies and growing 70's style sideburns to do extra work in "Rudy". Upon graduation, he moved to New York City and took a job in advertising but, when his neck became irritated from shaving every day, he retired to pursue comedy full time. His first job was dancing in a pink bear suit at Bar Mitvahs and he was hooked.
Since then Somerville has carved a unique niche in entertainment. He is the writer/host of FLN’s “Wingman”, authors Glamour Magazine’s renowned dating column “Jake: A Man’s Opinion” and is a nationally touring standup comedian. He’s appeared on Comedy Central, NBC’s The Apprentice, VH1 (40 Greatest Pranks, Craziest Concert Moments, 100 Most Wanted Bodies), Bravo’s 100 Funniest Movies and hosted Starz’s Stand Up or Shut Up, Nick at Night’s Road Crew and Encore’s “What Guys Want”. Michael’s debut CD, “Welcome to Somerville” plays in regular rotation on satellite radio and his web series “Love, Somerville” has received over one million views worldwide. He’s been quoted in numerous publications from Time Magazine to Maxim and was named one of “10 Hottest NYC Comics to Watch” by Improper Magazine.
In his free time, Michael likes sleeping late and fettuccini, and loathes the sound of honking horns. While generally convivial, he is most fun after coffee.
Leo Flowers: After receiving his M.A. in Counseling/Psychology, Leo immediately put it use on stage. Show after show, he hilariously dissects personal and social relationships. A Chicago native , Leo quickly worked his way into major comedy clubs and colleges across the country. His delivery has been described as "smooth and deliberate," making observations bordering on "genius and insanity." No two shows are ever alike, as he’s always attacking the issues of the day and revealing personal anecdotes. Infusing stand-up w/storytelling, Leo captivates audiences of all demographics. Recently, Leo has appeared on "Comics Unleashed w/Byron Allen"; winner of the Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Competition; runner-up in the "San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition;" a Finalist in the 2009 Stand-up for Diversity Competition; Laugh Factory regular; toured on "Shaved and Depraved Comedy Tour"; co-hosted MTV’s "Sports Blender;" and cut his acting chops in the webisode "Sorority Forever." He has also opened for such stars as Bill Burr, Mo’Nique and Mitch Fatel. So be sure to catch this rising star at a comedy club or movie theatre near you.
