In the comedic tradition of Nichols and May, Burns and Allan, and Bonnie and Clyde, The Mike and Mari Show offers a satirical look at how political upheaval, societal tensions and tech befuddle and displace the common person. Like two canaries in a virtual coal mine, Mike and Mari sound off when the air gets too thin to breathe.
The Mike and Mari Show unites pointed sketch comedy with music from the dynamic house band The Tiger Club led by the magnetic Baxter Robertson.
