With nearly three decades on stage, Mike Rivera has established himself as a premier comedy attraction and consistent crowd-pleaser from coast to coast. Class is in session when this longtime teacher takes the stage, with his trademark “teachable moments” keeping the audience laughing night after night. The quick-witted comedian tears through a fast-paced set that highlights his likable stage persona and clever writing style. It’s no wonder that ABC’s The View named him “America’s Most Hilarious Teacher” in a nationally-televised comedy competition.
Whether he’s delivering a lesson to engaged students or taking them on a trip overseas, Rivera connects with his students the way a comedian connects with his audience– because he is a comedian, and he considers his kids to be the most important audience he faces.
“Comedy is about finding common ground and reaching the audience in a personal and meaningful way,” Rivera said. “Teaching is no different, except the rewards continue long after the laughter stops.”
