Considered “one of the brightest young minds in Christian Comedy,” Mike Goodwin has a heart to bring strength and healing through joy to the Body of Christ. That’s why he’s dedicated his comedic gift and wit to a style and delivery that is as clean as his bowtie…
Mike was born again at a New Year’s Eve service in 1998. Ironically, a New Year’s Eve service was also the birthplace of Comedian Mike Goodwin. Mike opened for Comedian Akintunde that night in 2002 and he has been leaving his mark ever since.
A Camden, South Carolina native, Mike is the oldest of three children. Mike entered the United States Army after graduating from Camden High School in 1993. After four years of service, Mike exited active duty to enroll into Lander University in Greenwood, SC. At Lander, Mike was very involved on campus, and the seeds of comedy were planted. Mike hosted a myriad of events, and he also served as a student ambassador of the college. Mike was also initiated into the Gamma Nu chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and he is a charter member of the Omicron Nu chapter.
Mike graduated from Lander University with a BS in Political Science in 2001. He also graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Master of Education in 2003. Mike also served in the US Army Reserves as a commissioned officer.
Mike incorporates his life experience into his roles as a comedian, writer and motivational speaker. Mike and his beautiful wife Rozalynn, and their daughter and son live in Columbia, South Carolina, where he also serves as a leader at Right Direction Church International.
…Good laughs are guaranteed and you’ll be laughing about his wit long after the show. He’s serious about God and seriously funny.
Oh yeah – For the record: he’s not a Muslim. He just likes bowties.
