Michelle Buteau’s effervesence and bouncy, sunny appearance is betrayed by her devilish wit, and we love her for it.
Michelle recently made her late night stand up debut on George Lopez’s Lopez Tonight, as well performing numerous sketches on the show as the ‘Barrio Mom’, ‘Neutrogena Vega’, and touring with George and his “Viva La Risa” tour, has made her a Lopez family favorite. She has also performed at countless prestigious comedy festivals, such as Seattle’s Bumbershoot, Aspen’s HBO, and the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, but she’s most recognized for her performances on Seasons 5 and 6 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. And, after her appearances on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and Paramount Comedy Network’s The World Stands Up show, she has proved to be a network favorite, and HGTV’s 25 Worst Mistakes series can’t get enough of this hot talent.
Michelle has also shared more then her opinion on VH1′s Best Week Ever and Black to the Future, MTV’s Walk of Shame & Hatin’, and E!’s 50 Most Outrageous Celebrity Moments.
Michelle was born in New Jersey and raised by Caribbean parents, but despite it, Michelle’s English is surprisingly, very good. She has a truly international following, with regular appearances in London, Dublin, and Amsterdam. When she isn’t touring the country performing at colleges and clubs, she hosts her weekly web series Things you should know with Michelle Buteau at www.thingsyoushouldknowwithmichellebuteau.blogspot.com
Catch her on stage when you can and see comedy’s mistress blend her Jamaican-Haitian sassiness and girl-next door quality into a show that is anything but routine. “Buteaupia” is her premiere comedy album available on www.filmbaby.com.
