In addition to his successful and well-received live performances all over North America, Mike has appeared on numerous TV shows on HBO, Showtime, The Comedy Network, and CBC’s Just For Laughs.
He has also starred in three well received and critically acclaimed specials for the CBC in Canada and for Showtime in the US which include, On Target, My House My Rules! and Happy As I Can Be.
Mike has always lived his life as an open book never shying away from his own personal battles. He has been and continues to be a strong advocate in the fight against the stigma of Mental Health issues and drug addiction.
In 2011, MacDonald was diagnosed with Hepatitis C which progressed to the point where his liver and his kidneys shut down. He was put on the waiting list for a liver transplant and on March 17, 2013 he underwent a successful seven-hour liver transplant operation.
Since 2014, Mike has returned full-time to performing and has wowed audiences with his ‘Recovery Story’ which is not only brutally honest but gut-wrenchingly funny and insightful. His journey resonates with a wide audience; particularly 12-Step Recovery Groups, Treatment Centers, Hospitals and Mental Health organizations.
