Currently, Robles remains busier than ever criss-crossing the country touring both as a solo artist and with the QUE LOCOS COMEDY TOUR. Robles has just released his debut comedy CD entitled TOTALLY UNCENSORED, which is available through his website www.mikerobles.com.
Of Puerto Rican decent, Robles grew up in the Castle Hill section of The Bronx, the same area which Jennifer Lopez was raised. Robles spent five years working for TWA in customer relations listening to complaints from irate customers all day long. He thought about seeking therapy, but instead chose stand-up comedy. He decided to leave TWA for good when he received a call from an irate passenger who informed Mike "You guys lost my husband's casket." Instead of sending the body to Hartford, CT., it was shipped to Honolulu, Hawaii. The next day's headline read "Man arrives late for his own funeral."
Since that time, Robles has performed at all major comedy clubs and colleges across the country, and has opened for many Latino recording artists ranging from Marc Anthony to Tito Nieves. Robles has the distinction of being the first Hispanic stand-up comedian to perform at New York City's prestigious Public Theater.
Robles is no stranger to television; in the 1980s he hosted his own one-hour comedy/variety show Comedy Picante on a local Bronx television network. This was followed by cult-cable access show Comedy Rhumba, which aired on Manhattan cable television and was the recipient of two Cable Ace award nominations for "Best Local Programming for Comedy/Variety Show." The success of the television led to Mike hosting "Comedy Rhumba Live," a monthly SRO engagement at Caroline's Comedy Club in New York City. This enormous popularity resulted in Mike hosting duties for Galavision and the national "Que Locos" tour.
Mike has created a loyal following that continues to grow. He has received many distinguished awards for his achievements in the Hispanic community, and has been praised by local politicians and entertainers for being a role model to young Latinos. The NY Daily News summed it up best "Not since Freddie Prinze's reign has a Latino comic turned so many heads."
