Having been named one of Rolling Stoneâ€™s â€œ50 Funniest People,â€ Buzzfeed's "50 Hottest Men in Comedy," and Varietyâ€™s â€œTop 10 Comics To Watch,â€ Che is quickly leaving his mark on the media landscape. A native of lower Manhattan, Cheâ€™s comedy uses humor to identify humanity in the most controversial actions. He applies street culture to world issues with a delivery that The New York Times describes as "a reflective, laid-back stage presence with jokes that draw as much from his city upbringingâ€¦as from blunt, insightful points that bring the abstract into focus.â€
Che is currently the co-anchor of Saturday Night Liveâ€™s iconic â€œWeekend Updateâ€ segment where he is also a co-head writer writer for the show. Prior to joining SNL, he was part of â€œThe Best F*ing News Team Ever!â€ as a correspondent on Comedy Centralâ€™s Emmy & Peabody Award-winning program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Che has performed stand-up on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers and on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman. In 2016, he released his first hour-long stand-up special entitled Michael Che Matters on Netflix. His first special aired in 2014 on Comedy Centralâ€™s The Half-Hour stand-up series.
Che has made numerous other television and film appearances including Chris Rockâ€™s Top Five, Comedy Central's hit series @midnight, and as a weekly cast member on Vh1â€™s Best Week Ever.
In August 2013, Che headlined a successful month-long run of standup shows entitled â€œCartoon Violenceâ€ at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with The Guardian raving, â€œhis effectiveness as a comic is instant.â€
Che has performed on the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity festival tour, at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Montreal Comedy Festival, Comedy Centralâ€™s South Beach Comedy Festival, The Moontower Comedy Festival, and Bonnaroo, where The Nashville Scene proclaimed â€œStraight up: Michael Che is going to be a star.â€ He was crowned the winner of the New Yorkâ€™s Funniest Stand-Up competition at the 2012 New York Comedy Festival, and both Time-Out NY and Comedy Central have listed him as one of their "Comics To Watch." He headlines comedy shows nationally and internationally.
