Michael Gelbart is truly someone to watch. He has a nonchalant, audience-friendly approach, meshing ad-libs with material that is completely unique. His debut novel The Other Oprahs is rapidly gaining momentum and has been called "hilariously inspiring." Michael started his comedy career in high school and continued through college. After graduating from broadcasting school, he landed his own episode of the CBC series Comics, his first national exposure showcasing his abilities as a performer and writer. A second TV special followed, as well as offers to write and perform. He was head writer of the Gemini Awards, wrote and co-starred in The Weinstein Company DVD A Very Cool Christmas, which airs annually on Lifetime, and is currently writing and performing on a number of shows for Disney, Cartoon Network and Teen Nick.
