Mike Mildon is a young writer/director/actor burning with ideas, ideals and talent. His passion and commitment to his comedic craft, whether it be on stage, on film, or in his basement performing in front of his parents – shines in every project he does. Dating back to his high school days, where Mike was dead set on a life in business, little did he know a drama class and a camcorder would help him discover a completely different path and passion in the arts.
Since then, he has gone on to write and direct with some of the world’s top brands, such as McDonalds, Grey Goose, Pfizer, and many more. In 2013, he met funnier lads then him, Jackson Rowe and Jon Rende, and their sketch troupe, Trophy Husbands, was formed. After pouring blood, sweat, tears, and their own money into those self-produced comedy shorts, he has turned his life of comedy into a living, by co-writing/co-creating/executive producing his first TV series, For Heaven’s Sake – with his best friend, roommate, and fellow Trophy Husband, Jackson Rowe. Mike has come along way. From forgetting his lines in Drama class and being a stage hand for the school play to sitting in the offices of Paramount, pitching them his next big idea.
