Michael McCreary

Michael McCreary

Special Appearance

Michael McCreary may only be in his twenties, but he’s already well on his way to fulfilling his lifelong, albeit short, dream of becoming a stand-up comedian.  The young comic, a high school student in Orangeville, Ontario, was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of five. In an act of self-preservation, combined with the desire for constant attention and the inability to stop talking, stand-up comedy seemed inevitable.
