Mike Morse is a man of infinite jest. Most comedians would be content to perform a first-class stand-up routine. But laugh-maker Morse doesn't stop there. He interjects song parodies, wacky props and a Mick Jagger imitation that could leave the Queen of England amused. Multi-talented Morse builds bit upon bit, applause break after applause break and closes with a hilarious, can't-miss, musical hand puppet show.
