Some of the outfits he has directed and/or acted for include Clubbed Thumb, Soho Rep, New Georges, The Flea, Annex Theatre, Seattle Rep, New City Theatre and The Playhouse (Londonderry, N. Ireland). His films have screened widely at festivals, including Tribeca and Seattle, and garnered top honors online. Mike performs with the bands Buffalo Nickels and The Waltz Project. Film/TV credits include LAST WEEK TONIGHT, THE GOOD SHEPHERD, GEORGIA, DAY ZERO, and LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O’BRIEN. He has written for Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, Discovery Channel and NPR. It’s an honor to share a tent with John and the Piper team.  www.MikeShapiro.com
