June 7, 2017 (Manila) – With all the unpleasant news on TV and social media, one longs for a good laugh and veteran comedian Mike Unson is happy to perform his relatable brand of observational comedy in his upcoming show “Mayhem in the First Degree” on June 16, 8pm at the 5th level, Century City Mall, Kalayaan Ave., Makati City.
Unson, a 2016 Aliw Award Nominee for Best Stand-Up Comedian, headlines the comedy show with his arsenal of wholesome jokes reflecting his views on urban life, childhood memories, relationships and interactions with everyday people as he dishes out his original material on annoying encounters with cab and jeepney drivers; street vendors; mall security guards; (un)talented bands; his childhood nanny; and dealing with middle child syndrome, being in the friend zone, breakups and many more true to life situations that we all experience at times.
In his 14-year career, he is known for building up comic rhythm with impeccably timed punchlines, adding substance and imparting unconventional thought-provoking insights while leaving the audience in stitches and wanting for more.
