The "Bowtie" Comedian & Leadership Speaker

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Mike Goodwin Biography

Mike Goodwin is a refreshingly funny comedian, speaker, and leader. His signature bowtie is a nod to his expectation-defying brand of comedy that leaves a variety of audiences – from corporate events to swanky galas – laughing hysterically and completely inspired, without a foul or vulgar word spoken.

A native of Camden, South Carolina, Goodwin was raised in a family that had its share of dysfunction. He learned at an early age how to use laughter to pierce through tension and in some cases, ease the pain. As a result, he developed an affinity for comedy and used it as a way to cope with difficult situations he faced as a child.

After graduating from high school, Goodwin enlisted in the United States Army, where he served for a total of 12 years – four in active duty, and the balance as an ROTC cadet and commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Reserves. While attending college at Lander University in Greenwood, SC, he became active on campus and honed his leadership skills by serving as a campus ambassador, hosting events, and joining his fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi.

Goodwin holds a master's degree in Education from the University of South Carolina and a Diversity and Inclusion Certificate from Cornell University and worked in secondary and higher education before deciding to pursue stand-up comedy full time. Drawing upon his varied life experiences and career, he's able to relate to audiences from all walks of life. His vibrant personality, wit, and professionalism make for a unique combination that keeps him booked on stages stateside and abroad, throughout the year.

Whether it's a comedy act for a church event or a keynote address at a conference, Goodwin uses his ability to merge leadership and laughter, to help meet his goal of leaving places and people better than he found them. He's appeared on Lifetime, BET, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), Daystar, USA, The Word Network, Dry Bar Comedy, and Circle TV. Goodwin has shared stages with Dr. David Jeremiah, Tim Hawkins, John Crist, and Michael Jr., and participated in the USO Europe Comedy Tour. When not on stage, you can find him sharpening his skills as a writer for digital media outlets and platforms.

A southern gentleman with a curious mind, love for people, and heart for God, Mike Goodwin is in a class all his own. Offering strength and healing through joy is his life's purpose and comedy is the vehicle that helps him realize that goal. He resides in Columbia, SC with his beautiful wife Rozalynn and their two children.

Speaking Topics
  • LEADERSHIP AND LAUGHTER

    Over the past ten years performing comedy in corporate, church and club venues, I have attained powerful and hilarious insights I want to share with you. This wisdom will empower you to recognize leadership lessons in unsuspected places, equip you with strategies to combat stress and anxiety, and provide tactics to improve workplace productivity. Let's discover how the combination of "Leadership and Laughter" can catapult your organization to the next level!

  • ADDRESSING THE BIG BLACK ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

    I've walked into rooms with hundreds of total strangers and within 15 minutes, I am their long-lost friend (my wife wanted me to use "BFF" here). How is this possible? Comedians have the uncanny ability to say what everyone is thinking and even discuss controversial topics with ease. Over the past decade, my stand-up audiences have remained receptive and open-minded to my refreshingly funny yet thought-provoking brand of comedy. In this workshop, I will share the tips and techniques I have learned and empower you to have more comfortable critical conversations.?

  • MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME....NOT REALLY

    Most diversity presentations leave the majority group feeling enlightened or guilty, while the minority group is left feeling empty or vindicated.

    Why do some members of your team immediately feel right at home and seen, while others feel like guests in someone else's home and invisible? Would all the members of your team feel comfortable joining you in a foxhole? Research shows that engagement is a key factor that promotes high performance in organizations.

  • PIVOTING TO ADVOCACY

    You are enlightened, but now what? We all have some type of privilege, but are we using it to advocate for others without that privilege? Get skills and techniques to cultivate inclusivity.
