Michael McDonald is probably best known for his 10-year stint on "MADtv" performing gut-busting sketch comedy. For years, McDonald was the go-to guy for impersonations on the show, parroting a host of characters and celebrities from Dr. Phil and Chris Martin to Saddam Hussein. MADtv-watchers will remember Sean Gidcomb, Bible Dude, and the Depressed Persian Tow Truck Driver — all products of McDonald's wonky humor. More recently, he has been heavily involved with directing and writing for "Cougar Town," and has directed a handful of episodes of "Mike and Molly." When not acting, directing, or writing, McDonald cracks jokes in person on national comedy tours.
Michael McDonald performs Thursday, May 7, through Saturday, May 9, at the Comedy Club, 2235 Empire Boulevard. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday; and 7:30 and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. $15-$25. thecomedyclub.us.
