About Felicia Michaels

Felicia Michaels is comedian, writer and filmmaker. Her comedy appeared on such networks as MTV, A&E, COMEDY CENTRAL, VH1 and SHOWTIME. Not to mention NBC, ABC and FOX. She soon found herself becoming a COMEDY GRAND CHAMPION on STAR SEARCH. Her first comedy CD, "Lewd Awakenings," landed Felicia on XM Satellite’s list of top 100 jokes. She was nominated twice as Funniest Female by the American Comedy Awards before clinching it.


An "Army Brat" who was used to moving about, Michaels built her early career by refusing to allow her gender to tame her material and never once flinching when it came to the rigorous travel and tv schedule that a stand-up comedy career demands.


Breaks from touring were supplemented with film and photography courses at NYU and The New School, which led to her writing and directorial debut with the Cine Eagle Award-winning short film "In the Weeds." Work soon followed on Mitch Hedberg's Sundance Film Festival selection "Los Enchiladas," as an actor and assistant director. Guest appearances followed on sitcoms, and her ongoing photo documentary project "Stand UP / Stripped DOWN" won first place at the PRIX DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE COMPETITION in Paris.


She quit comedy after her second child was born, only to return from that hiatus stronger and more determined then before. Touring followed quickly, along with a two-year run with the hit underground podcast "Beauty and Da Beast" with fellow comic Joey "Coco" Diaz. Their "raw-some" comedy chemistry earned them a Best Comedy Podcast nomination from the Podcast Awards in 2012, keeping company with the likes of fellow nominees WTF and the Nerdist. She recently was a regular on Nick Mom's "Parental Discretion."


Currently Michaels keeps herself busy touring, and putting the finishing touches on a new directorial project - all this while raising two young boys as a single mother.
