Mike Yard is the man with the stand up comedy plan at Broadway Comedy Club on Thursday nights. He started out as a spectator going to comedy clubs and open mic nights, before he was inspired to hit the stage himself.
Yard is one of the hottest comedians in the country. He was named one of comedy's most thought provoking comedians at the Black Comedy Awards and is a proud winner of Comedy Central's "Get Up, Stand Up" Comedy Competition. Yard also lends his writing talents to the animated pilot "The Big Head People" for Spike TV.
Venues that have been home to Yard's comedy performances include The Improv, Caroline's, The Comedy Store, Rascal's, Stand Up NY, The Laugh House or The Mohegan Sun. Yard has that star quality to bring any personality to life. He talks in impressive dialects from the Caribbean, Africa, India, England, and many other lands. Audiences have seen the magic when Yard gets up on stage. He speaks about current issues, family memories, and other topics that touch the funny bone with genuine flair.
His experiences have extended past the stage into the silver screen. Yard has appeared in "The Apollo Comedy Hour," "Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam (All Star Edition)," BET's "Comicview," and "Bad Boys of Comedy."
Yard can be seen performing at Broadway Comedy Club in New York City. For more details on the best comedy club in New York City, check out Broadway Comedy Club online!
