Make sure you get dinner tickets. With Dinner tickets you get to go 1.5 hours earlier and you get front row seats. If buying on Goldstar, you have to email Goldstar to have them make dinner reservations for you. It is free and worth it. The food is average priced, you get huge portions, and it tastes great.

This is the 2nd time I have seen Michael and it was just as if not more enjoyable than the first time. He is a great comedian with a dark sense of humor. I plan to see him the next time he comes to this venue.

Michael McDonald is originally from Orange County, California. He is an alumnus of the famed Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles.

His first professional writing and acting jobs came from Concorde Pictures, Roger Corman’s infamous low-budget movie studio. Starting as an extra, McDonald quickly landed dozens of film roles, eventually moving behind the camera to write and direct for the studio.

In the 1990’s, McDonald worked steadily in television, landing guest spots on Seinfeld, Ellen, _Just Shoot Me _and News Radio. In 1998, he obtained a starring role on MADtv, where he enjoyed an unprecedented 10-year run. While there, McDonald created several popular characters – most notably man-child Stuart Larkin, Marvin Tikkvah, Rusty Miller, and Mofaz, The Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man.

In 2007, McDonald left MADtv to work both behind and in front of the camera on a variety of television shows. Credits include Scrubs, Desperate Housewives, Pushing Daisies, Reaper, Kath & Kim, Head Case, _Hannah Montana _and Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.  He is currently splitting his time as a writer/producer/director on ABC’s _Cougar Town _and touring the country as a stand up comedian. His first hour-long stand up comedy special, titled _Michael McDonald: Model. Citizen _aired on Showtime in the fall of 2010.
