Hey, what's happenin'? Mike Schmidt here, hoping you'll click that "Subscribe" button and join me every week for "The 40 Year Old Boy", a brutally funny stream-of-consciousness monologue about my life. It's been called, "the funniest answering message you'll ever receive", and I agree ... unless, of course, Paul F. Tompkins has ever called you. That guy is hilarious.

Customer Reviews

Great guy, tough show

Mike was a cutting-edge comedian looking for a big break. He’s a great guy and cares about his fans. His show meant a lot to me when I really needed something. He has great technical ability. But things fell apart for him, and now he’s a sad Uber driver. Great great talent but a hard show to listen to these days.


I have been listening for about a year now and I must say the show about you and Karen was the best down to earth show you have done

Time moves on but Schmidtty stands still instead of Stand Up

Update: Looks like my prediction of his Patreon $ doing absolutely nothing to further his "stand up comedy" "career" has proven true. Lucky fans have helped him buy a new Mac laptop and the iPhoneX and fund his personal trainer. It's also enabled him to hide indoors, quit working, and completely lose all pretense of doing ANYTHING comedy related.
Atta Baby!

Baby Schmidttly needs to get over himself & stop insulting the very idea of comedy by claiming to be a stand up comedian. He’s not even funny in his own podcast.
How can he even call himself a stand up comedian? Is he constantly, or ever, trying to get stage time? Doing open mics? Writing & working on material? Does he even go watch real comedians? It doesn’t sound like it from his podcast.
Schmidt used to talk about having crummy jobs that would at least give him the flexibility to DO STAND UP. And yet, he didn’t.
And now, he’s not even working. He’s not even funny.
But he has a Patreon page!
Somehow having fans financially support Schmidt is going to be the magic ticket that gets him up & out? Nope. Fans already bankrolled one tour for him—and then he crawled back into a hole and did nothing. For years. Except ask for more $$ from fans.
If Schmidt wants to “get paid to talk” without doing the work of comedy: then stand on a corner with a donation bucket. I can’t imagine why anyone who has to work for their $$ would donate to this show only to listen to how he fritters it away & throw tantrums like an ungrateful toddler. Nothing is good enough for Schmidt, yet he does nothing for himself.
Sycophantic fans will do as they do, but it has nothing to do with Schmidt’s merit and everything to do with their own enabling weakness.
He’s just an unfunny boring baby with microphone.
