Mike Hover is a stand up comedian based out of Chicago Illinois, who has performed all over the United States and parts of Europe. Mike has performed at clubs, casinos, and festivals, including the Milwaukee Comedy Festival and Gilda's Laughfest. His acting credits include the SyFy Channel and the CW.


Still funny, just pre-recorded and socially distant. Mike has used this quarantine to produced projects that have delighted and earned awards. Such as a stop motion animation featuring his stand up material and a music video (both receiving awards at this year's digital Genrethon).

In the fall of 2020, Mike took part in digital version of The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival and headlined at the Milwuakee Comedy Festival. 


Mike recorded his first comedy album "HOVERDRIVE" at The Underground Collaborative (Milwaukee, WI) in 2019 and debuted at No. 2 on the iTunes Comedy Chart in February 2020. In this debut album, Mike covers everything from relationships to Dungeons and Dragons. Something for everyone.

Mike was just nomiated "Comedian of the Year" for the Chicago Musica Awards.  

In June 2020, Mike released an EP "Bender", featuring new jokes about becoming a new dad.


Both "Hoverdrive" and "Bender" are available on all streaming and music services!
