I think why Michael has been able to last for so long is because he was popular enough with the writers to be put in a lot of good sketches early on. I got better for him in season 9 when he became one of the writers and could now choose which sketches he wanted to be in, which other present and former castmembers didn't have the choice. He is now in charge of his own destiny on the show.

Here's an interview that Mike did recently:
http://www.nwherald.com/articles/200...9921110252.txt
He's doing stand-up now. I Really do hope it goes well for him.
I don't think he's coming back to MADtv anytime soon by the looks of it, but you can't really tell.

Wow, this is sad. I thought he would return for sure in some way. I also feel sad because this is Michael McDonald, possably the greatest MADtv cast member ever, now doing stand-up. It makes you think what were the 10 years for? When Will Ferrell left Saturday Night Live he was already a bonefied star, and getting movie roles. And Michael, who should be having the same treatment if not better is reduced to doing stand-up at places like Schaumburg wherever the h*** in Illinois. This makes me sad.

Well, it IS his choice, actually. If he's happy doing what's he's doing, then we should be happy for him too!

Anybody realise that at the endings of Season 13, around episodes 14~16, Michael began to look very solemn? Never noticed until now. It could had been a warning...

Here is part of a episode of Hanna Montaina that Michael was in. I only put parts 1 and 3 because those are the only ones that he is in and I skipped all the parts he wasn't in because I just can't stand this show. By what I understand Mylie has to have a filling replaced but she's scared of the dentist and never gets it done, which leads to Michael's scene in part 3 Eventhough I think Hanna Montaina is a horrible show, and I think Mylie Cyrus is overrated, Michael still has a great performance that even sometimes reminded me of him on MADtv.

Here's an interesting fact about Michael's tenure on MADtv. If you include guest appearances by former cast members, and his directing work in season 14, Bryan Callen, David Herman, Lisa Kushell, and Chris Hogan are the only cast members to have never worked at any capacity with Michael on MADtv. That's a surprising figure to me.

In a piece of news I missed, Michael directed the Scrubs episode Their Stories II at the end of last month. For those of you in the US, you can catch this episode on ABC.com.

Michael has gone the way of Mo Collins and appeared on Pushing Daises. He was just on the series finale, which has already aired outside of the US, soon to air in the US in coming weeks.

I've always thought Michael was a great interviewee. He seems to be fun, especially in this interview, which was great.

Here is Michael talking with Chelsea Handler for her show Chelsea Lately. It's from about a year ago. It's a non air, rough cut version. It's pretty funny, and Chelsea really takes the spot light here, but in a good way.

Could you provide the link to that facebook page? If he's preforming in Washington that might mean he's preforming in Vancouver later too.
