About Me

My name is Michael Scott Schirtzer.

I am a slam poet and┬ástandup┬ácomic. I’ve worked on political campaigns. I was once referred to as a “scholar-activist” and I like the way that sounds.

I was born in Manhattan, NY in 1989 and moved to the west coast at the tender age of one. I was raised in Los Angeles, California.

I hold the accomplished film credits of having played Jock #1 in a Warner Brother’s film “Funky Monkey” and an extra in both the Paris Hilton classic “Bottom’s Up” and what would eventually become a prophetic bio pic, Jamie Kennedy’s “Malibu’s Most Wanted.”

Moshe Kasher once described me as “Bill Hicksian…” and also said “I would fuck you right now.”

I currently host a monthly standup comedy show at the Malibu Playhouse. I sometimes write jokes for The Jimmy Dore Show on KPFK and The Young Turks Youtube network, and Joe Goes on Youtube.
