Humorist Mike Redmond is a Hoosier through and through. That’s not a bad thing. A native of Peru, Indiana, he spent his childhood in Indianapolis and, after a brief period in Washington, DC, on the LaGrange County farm he calls home – even though he lives in a city. Go figure!
Mike is the author of Six of One, Half-Dozen of Another (Guild Press, 2002), and the forthcoming The Night The Wheels Fell Off (Emmis Books). He also has book deals for Daddy-O and Work and Other Annoyances, and he has an untitled cookbook in the works.
He formerly was the humor columnist for The Indianapolis Star, for which he wrote three times a week from 1995 to 2003. His column twice was recognized for excellence by the American Association of Sunday and Features Editors, and in 2001 was named Best General Column among large newspapers by the Hoosier State Press Association.
In addition to his freelance newspaper work, he has been a commentator on the CBS News program, “Up To The Minute” and on Indianapolis television station WTHR Channel 13. He also writes for Indianapolis Woman magazine, Indianapolis Monthly magazine and several suburban publications.
An accomplished musician and songwriter, Mike lives in historic downtown Indianapolis in a 107-year-old house with his wife, daughter, dog, three cats and a large collection of toy tractors.
He has spoken to groups and at events ranging from 5 to 1,500+ audience members. It’s no secret: Mike Redmond is a VERY funny man. Besides, he was first-runner-up in the Cub Scout Pack 132 Halloween Costume Contest in 1963. Actually, that remains his proudest achievement.
A Hoosier through and through – and that’s not a bad thing!Keynote topics
Mike works hard to apply his brand of humor to the occasion. For that reason, he has no “canned” presentation. Everything is crafted for each event from the ground up. Whether it is current events, motivational humor, humor in the workplace or any customer-requested issue/topic, he inspires audience interaction, and leaves ’em laughing.
