Wrestlemania 31! That's right Mike Betancourt was in Wrestlemania 31. He was one of Rusev's soliders and Bray Wyatt's scarecrows. Wait there's more! Mike Betancourt is also seen in a feature film called Mamaboy (Starring Gary Busey and Stephen Tobolowsky). Brace yourself! Not only has Mike been in local commercials, but he is also a writer and a stand up comedian. He is great with voices and engages the audience making them a part of his act, which makes everyone have a great time at his shows.
Mike gives 110% on stage, sweating his butt off to entertain, leaving the audience in pain from laughing so hard. Booking Mike as your comedian will be something you'll never regret.
I've known Mike for a couple of years now but feels like decades. He is a true blue honest funny and sincere man but besides that he is extremely talented. I have confidence in every audition I send him on that not only is he likely to book but most certainly comes prepared, has the highest of professionalism and really makes my casting company look strong. I highly recommend him for any of your on camera or stage needs!

mikes a pro. and a likeable guy all around!!! easy 5stars
I've known Mike Betancourt for a few years now. I've worked with him on film projects, seen his stand up four times and spent time with him and his family. Whrn you meet Mike you immediately feel how intense he is. His standup can get crazy and it changes with the audience. Mike is thoughtful and observant and it gives his comedy a deeper level so that you can laugh and think. He's a genuine gentleman, a funny guy and has the best work ethic I've ever seen. If you get the chance to see him perform stand up or work with him on a project you will be glad you did.
I had the privilege of seeing Mike Betancourt's act at Laughs Unlimited in Old Sacramento. After a couple warm up comics performed, Mike came out. Immediately I was taken in by his presence. It felt like a headlining act had come into the stage. He had a suit jacket and a tie on, which gave him a professional appearance. Although he took the jacket off after a bit because of the physical comedy nature of his show. When he got to his "She Rex" bit he was in full physical comedy mode. Once you start laughing at his act, you simply cannot stop. It is fast paced enough to keep your full attention but not so much that you miss the jokes. A very funny show that I will see again someday.
A truly remarkable comic that delivers his material very well.
I've booked Mike Betancourt repeatedly, and I will continue to do so.
His performances are always strong, energetic, smart and FUNNY. The man will leave no stone unturned to entertain.
He also happens to be a real professional: punctual, thoughtful, experienced and a real student of the game. Excellent communication before, during and after my events, and always wants the best experience for all involved.
I would never hesitate to work with Mike Betancourt.
I've been lucky enough to see Mike a few times and each time has has had me in tears. He completely sells his jokes and his unique twists on life as a dad/husband/comedian keep you wanting more. He is always the highlight of every show. HIGHLY recommended!
I was fortunate enough to to see Mike as Sarge on the zombie train. He was hilarious. Sharp, quick witted, and brought life to what could easily have been a one note military stereotype. Every joke landed and I was almost rolling in the aisles as he interacted with guests and zombies. An absolutely fantastic performance that I would love to see again.
I was lucky enough to witness Mikes hilarity at my first Homegrown Comedy trip at Inferno in Citrus Heights. He stole the show. I have never laughed so hard. He even "picked on" the table i was sitting at. If you haven't seen him, I suggest you get your butt wherever he may be at and enjoy the magic. He's awesome!
I had the honor of seeing Mike up in Sacramento, he was participating in an event that supported my organiztion (forveteranssake.org). All the comedians that night were Veterans. Mike hit the stage running with humor that floored me. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Most of the jokes were centered on military humor that night and I am still laughing. I about lost it with the Marine gag reflex joke. Working with Veterans everyday I get the chance to use that one when I talk to Marines. I would recomend that if you see Mike Betancourt appearing at a comedy club you will be very pleased. ( If your not, you probably suffer from that gag reflex). My service dog was even laughing. Thumbs up for this man I'll go out of my way to see him again.

What to Expect
I have a unique way of taking my many voices and sound effects to the extreme which means I am loud. You've been warned. I also engage with the audience while I bring them into my act as I talk about being a family man with girls who are friends with girls that know other girls. Yes I am in the hen house which is why I have to unleash. Any father that is also in the hen house can relate 100%. My act is simple. Wake Up! Cell phones off! Pay attention to the moment! And most importantly..... HAVE FUN!
Intense. Energetic. Animated. Just a few words describing comedian Mike Betancourt. mike has traveled near and far searching for what is actually funny. and the funniest thing he found was 100% honesty.
Mike is not afraid to share his stories. He has a colossal personality that instantly connects with the audience. With his incredible way of changing voices and creating characters the crowd latches on to his every word. Mike’s charm makes his twisted and controversial topics entertaining. He makes his way to the stage as if he is ready for battle.
