Dr. Mike has your prescription for laughs.
Born and raised in the coal regions of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Mike Repik graduated high school and then watched one too many armed forces recruitment spots on TV.
His lifelong passion for short haircuts, harsh discipline, and free travel to exotic places landed him in the Marine Corps. He concluded his hitch in during the first Persian Gulf War.
After discovering that people who gave shots had more fun than people who got shot, Mike put himself through four years of college, four years of medical school and four years of residency. Still, he tried to maintain a personal life and once left in a the middle of an autopsy to attend Ozzfest—still wearing his scrubs. Unfortunately, the sleep-deprived medical resident fell asleep during the show.
After twelve years of bad cafeteria food, he became Dr. Mike, medical doctor!
One day, while healing the sick, curing the long suffering and chronically complaining, and telling the moderately injured to fill out the proper forms and wait their turn, Dr. Mike realized that patients strapped to gurneys make the best captive audiences and that the only true way to heal someone is to make them laugh. For laughter that comes from the heart and not dispensed by a nitrous oxide mask, heals the soul, if not the internal bleeding.
Dr. Mike helps patients reach their ideal weight at a fleet of weight loss clinics and performs regularly at comedy clubs, nursing homes, conventions, holiday parties, computer rooms, veteran’s hospitals—and any place that will have him. Strange but true: he once saved an audience member’s life with a Snickers bar! When not practicing medicine or saving lives in comedy clubs, Dr. Mike is addicted to Internet chess.
He never judges a person by the size of his or her insurance policy.
