Mr. Microphone is coming to Hulu. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu has picked up The Return of Mr. Microphone for steaming.
The series is based on a bit from Comedy Dynamics’ stand-up series Coming to the Stage.
The Return of Mr. Microphone centers on “a 7’2″ microphone and stand-up comic, who’s been performing for 20 years but only has five minutes of material. Despite all of that, he’s determined to make it big.” Comedians Todd Bridges, Tom Segura, and Catherine Hicks appear on the series.
From Comedy Dynamics president Brian Volk-Weiss:
Like a few great shows, Mr. Microphone actually began as a doodle and snowballed into a television series. It’s an honor to follow in The Simpsons‘ footsteps.”
