Michael Fryar was born in Los Angeles and forcibly removed by his parents from the bright, sunny beaches of California to the dreary wasteland of Connecticut. Which lasted for a few years before the family moved to Virginia. Which lasted a few more years before the family left the state of reason and beauty and returned to the nowhere land of Connecticut.

Parents divorced, went their separate ways, which led Michael to travel with his mother to the swampy morass of Louisiana where they opened The Comic Book Emporium while his mother completed her Ph.D. Michael returned to Connecticut (because his learning curve is very shallow) to pursue a Bachelors in “Waste of Time” before moving to New Jersey to learn that there are places worse than Connecticut. He tried out Massachusetts with his father at his little sandwich shop on Cape Cod before returning to school for a Masters in Education. In Connecticut.

He taught for long enough to get an hours worth of high quality stand-up comedy material before becoming a consultant and attending Law School. he got married, had a kid, got divorced and was now trapped in the land of steady habits and steadier boredom because he was not going to leave the state with a young child.

He practiced law for long enough to get an hour and a half worth of high quality stand-up comedy material before his daughter was old enough and he could finally escape the state of emotional and artistic ruination that is the state of Connecticut. He fled with his new wife and children to the Maryland. Because his wife, the real breadwinner and enabler of the continuation of Michael’s childhood, was offered a job there. He is currently trying to find himself and be funny along the way.
