In the first grade Michael Kosta’s teacher asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. “I want to be funny”, Michael answered. A perplexed teacher responded, “But Michael, that’s not a profession” Utilizing an already sharp wit and cunning intelligence Michael replied; “You’re fat.”

Years later, it’s that same level of maturity that brings Michael to the forefront of the entertainment industry. Having previously established himself as one of the world’s best players on the professional tennis tour, Michael has taken his competitive nature to the comedic stage for an act that has been described as, “The work of a man with a million dollar smile and a pocket full of BS.”

Michael may enjoy writing about himself in the third person, but it’s his “playful narcissism” that makes him a comedy stand out. Michael describes himself as being “very tall, very handsome and very funny.” To date, Michael is certain he has never read a bio where the author, who also happens to be the comedian, quoted himself about himself. “That’s just genius” said Michael, while admiring himself in the mirror.

Michael recently taped his television debut on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham in March 2007 and also performed five shows at the prestigious HBO/US Comedy Festival in Aspen, Colorado. Michael was also recently a guest on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show where his jokes were heard by over seven million listeners.

Catch this rising star before he achieves comedic superstardom, proving to himself and his fat first grade teacher that, in fact, being funny is a profession.
