5 questions with Lexington comic Mike Fields

Mike Fields is a Lexington, Ky., based comic, who was born and raised in West Virginia. Although Mike may be new to comedy, he has hit the ground running.

He is a two-time featured performer at The West Virginia Comedy festival and Cincinnati’s Brew HAHA Comedy Festival. He has also opened for America’s Got Talent’s Ryan Niemiller and Last Comic Standing’s Dale Jones.

Mike has been performing at comedy clubs, festivals and shows all over the United States. He is fast becoming one of the area’s favorites, and he’s definitely a comic you won’t want to miss.

He will be one of the comics representing Lexington in the Louisville vs. Lexington Comedy Battle on May 6 at the Aloft Louisville Downtown.

Tickets for the show are $8 each or $25 for a table that seats up to four and are available here.

Lexington comedian Mike Fields will be at Aloft Louisville Downtown May 6

Louisville Laughs: How did you get into comedy?

Mike Fields: I’ve enjoyed standup since I was a child; and I made trying standup my New Year’s resolution in 2018. I fell in love with it, and it’s been a big part of my life ever since. 

2. What is the strangest place you have performed?

The strangest show I’ve done and hope I’ll ever do was in Bellafontaine, Ohio, in a bar, where the stage was next to 17-foot taxidermied giraffe. The owner had also made a cane out of the giraffe’s manhood and loved showing it off.

3. What has been your comedy highlight so far?

The biggest highlight so far is a tie; either performing at Cincinnati’s Brew Ha Ha Comedy Festival or my first club feature booking with Dale Jones at The Caravan Comedy Club. Both were great experiences!

4. You also produce shows at Pivot Brewing in Lexington. What’s the best and worst part of working with fellow comedians?

Producing shows is stressful, but the best and worst part is the same, bookings. You get to meet some great people, network and hopefully make friends in a town you’ve not done comedy in. But, it also shows you how not to act.

A lot of comics really sell them selves in strange, very brash ways. But it’s a small price to pay to book a show with comedians I respect and admire. 

5. What’s something about performing standup that people don’t understand?

I don’t think people realize how much work goes in to being good at standup comedy. You put yourself through a lot, traveling, trying to figure how to make your act work and doing terrible shows just so you can get a few minutes on stage. Writing jokes is difficult, especially when you try to appeal to the widest audience possible. But it’s definitely worth all the effort.

5 1/2: Do the Lexington comics have a chance against the Louisville comics?

I’m hoping for a great show. I hope we can win, but I’m just looking forward to performing with some of my good friends from both cities. 

You can find Mike on Twitter at @MpF_KY, on Instagram at @mike_isnt_funny and on Facebook at Mike Fields.

5 questions with Cincinnati comedian Zach Wycuff

Zach Wycuff is a 27-year-old comedian from Cincinnati, who has also worked as a zoo security guard, probation officer and youth minister.

He is one of the funniest and nicest comics in Cincinnati, often making fun of his church-centered upbringing.

He will be performing at the Thursday Comedy Showcase at the Aloft Louisville Downtown on Thursday, April 22. Tickets are free but are required to ensure proper spacing and are available here.

Louisville Laughs: How did you get started in comedy?

Zach: I got started in college after a mentor of mine here in Cincinnati told me about how he used to do improv. I always loved comedy growing up and didn’t realize that it existed in places that weren’t New York or L.A.

I thought there was some sort of Harry Potter school of Jokecraft and Clownery, and until that point, I had been waiting for Seinfeld to show up at my door and say “Yer a comedian, Zachy!”

What is the Cincinnati comedy scene like these days?

 The Cincinnati comedy scene is full of so much talent that it’s equal parts inspiring and annoying. Like I would think doing comedy in a mid-sized city like Cincy that I would be some sort of big fish in a little pond but no; there’s a lot of pretty big fish in this mid-sized pond.  Everyone is good and always forcing me to up my game.

I try to make space for the newer folks because the same grace was extended to me as I was coming up and want to do the same for others. Although for some particularly talented youngsters I haven’t entirely ruled out pulling a Nancy Kerrigan.

Much of your comedy pokes gentle fun at your Christian faith and upbringing. Is it difficult to find just the right tone?

Great question! “Gentle poking” sounds like something my youth pastor would teach me to be against. Definitely it is.

I make fun of the thing because I love it and am very much in it. I like Jesus but don’t necessarily love all the BS people try to attach to His name.

So it’s hard to sometimes say what I mean in a way that works for my mom and also doesn’t sound like I just came from youth group. But the fun part is figuring it out!

You have been a probation officer and a youth minister. How are those jobs alike?

I’ve found most of the jobs I’ve had have been like being a wet blanket. I’m a heat-seeking missile for fun; I find it and blow it up.

I also think I really just want the best for people and want to do my best to gently guide them in a way that feels honoring and loving, but sometimes that can feel like dad coming downstairs to the sleepover and telling everyone to turn off the Nintendo and go to sleep.

Have you ever performed at a show in a bar or some other venue and thought to myself, “This is not my crowd?”

Despite my background, I feel very at home in a bar or wherever. The worst time I had with a “this isn’t my crowd” moment was when I was hired to perform for a function celebrating volunteers at a local library. What they didn’t tell me is that the gig would be for primarily 65-80 year olds in a brightly-lit room before noon.

If you were making a formula for a bad comedy show, this would be it.

Thankfully their vision wasn’t good enough to see my pit-sweat through my shirt. It was the longest 20 minutes of my life. The worst was when I would make fun of myself and then they would laugh, because I knew they could hear me and it wasn’t a hearing-aid issue.

I talked to a lady in the front row about jazz for 5 minutes and she got the biggest laughs of the set. I should’ve guessed they wouldn’t like me. Librarians main job is telling people to be quiet. I wish they had told me to do that.

You can follow Zach at @wach_zycuff on Instagram and Twitter. He will tell you jokes that are super funny if you’re not a librarian! Thanks friends!
