A southern gentleman with a curious mind, love for people, and heart for God, Mike “The Bowtie” Goodwin is in a class all his own. His signature bowtie is a nod to his expectation-defying brand of comedy that leaves a variety of audiences laughing hysterically and completely inspired. Mike was raised in a dysfunctional family. As a child, he learned how to use laughter to pierce through tension, cope with difficult situations, and ease pain. Offering strength and healing through joy is his life’s purpose and comedy is the vehicle that helps him realize that goal. Mike is also a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Reserves, a former higher education teacher, and writer.
Mike and his wife, Rozalynn, along with their two children make their home in Columbia, SC.
