Veronica: This comedian does it all, he’s an actor, he’s funny and he’s in the hottest lip sync band around. Mike: Sweet. Veronica: Hi I’m Veronica at watchmojo.com and today we’re talking with the very popular Mike Paterson. Mike: The answer is yes. I am growing a millet. Veronica: How do you come up with your sets? Mike: Usually it happens to me which is actually insane considering what I talked about like a joke about Freddie Krueger and meeting the actor that played Freddie Krueger and then he was boring to death. Mike you have to go to pass, wine and cheese, the prolongs. The prolongs with cheese, and my what the fuck is Freddie Krueger talking about. The whole joke is I keep on falling his leg, oh I’m still boring oh god and I’m oh don’t fall asleep because Freddie Krueger will get you. So I go to politics care I kick him in the balls and I was like don’t touch time Krueger, of course that didn’t happen I was still asleep and the make up chair, he was like chocolate chrisoms, coffee chrisoms. Veronica: You already discussed how you envisioned your wedding day and I think it involves UFC announcer in the final count down? Mike: It’s not UFC, because I don’t like UFC. Because it’s too real, I like professional wrestling which is more like you stump like I can punch a camera now. But you have to get the baah. I want some lasers at my wedding, I’m so worried. I want pyrotechnic fire explosions going on when I celebrate my nuptials. The joke comes from somebody just said what’s going to happen when she walks down the aisle and I was like half dead. I want to walk down on the aisle because when you walk down you’re going to be like yeah here we go. Coming down the aisle in the pink and blue tuxedo, iron Mike Paterson. Veronica: Do you have tips for women who want to be as lucky as your girl friend and dated a comedian? Mike: One thing that would help if you have money, you have a job, and you can pay for stuff and the comedian will eventually move in to your house and eat your food all the time. I do tour a lot with good looking comedians and they’re always surrounded by women at the end of the show, they’re just wow what are you doing, where are we going? For me I’m surrounded by like bald men, guys with a mustache. My girlfriend is not worried about me cheating on her. she’s worried about me getting into like an all night go carting fiasco with alcohol involved. Why does your boyfriend drink so much? Veronica: Now besides being just a funny man and which women will always like, you add another level of sex appeal by being in a lip sync band. Mike: I am in a lip sync band, it’s called Never Surrender which is it’s on the television channel at You Tube. I’ve play keyboards and I’m the backup lead vocalist. I actually went to theaters school so I have some dance technique and we did all our own choreography because nobody wants a part of that, I don’t think. Veronica: Well thanks, it was great having you. Mike: Hey it was so great to be here.
