Michael McDonald is great on MadTV (too bad he retired) but stand up... not as great. Actually he was okay. We have been to many comedy shows and Michael McDonald wouldn't be someone we'd spend our money again. But hey, if you go... you can judge...continued
Michael McDonald was born and raised in Fullerton, Orange County, California. He graduated from USC with a degree in Business and became a loan officer at a bank in Los Angeles. A friend took him to see a sketch comedy/improv show at L.A.‘s famous Groundlings Theater, and everything changed for him. McDonald quit his job as a banker, enrolled in the Groundlings’ program, and became a member of the troupe from 1992 to 1997. His first professional writing and acting jobs came from Concorde Pictures, Roger Corman’s infamous low-budget movie studio.
Starting as an extra, McDonald landed small roles in many B-movies of the early 1990s, and he gradually earned bigger roles as well as eventually writing and directing some films. He has had a cameo in every Austin Powers movie. After numerous small roles in various television sitcoms in the mid-1990s, McDonald obtained a starring role on FOX’s MADtv in 1998. He was the series’ longest-running cast member. He performed several recurring characters, including Stuart Larkin, Rusty Miller, Marvin Tikvah, Sean Gidcomb, Bible Dude, and Mofaz the Depressed Persian Tow Truck Driver.
