Mike van Acker has been a fixture of the Australian Comedy Circuit since his Stand Up debut in 1992. In that time he has toured internationally, appeared on TV and Radio, won awards and commenced a business operation within the comedy industry. This unique blend of experience and ability has positioned Mike perfectly for what has become his specialty; Master Of Ceremonies/Facilitator at corporate events.
With a list of past clients as diverse as Australian Institute of Hotel Engineers, The Sunflower Growers Assoc.’ and the Australian Taxation Office, Mike has vast experience and expertise in facilitating events, conferences and awards nights. His business background allows him the ability to maintain the appropriate ‘tone’ for an event, whilst his comedy experience allows him to inject some humour or ‘lightness’ when required. For these reasons Mike enjoys repeat business from the vast majority of his clients.
