Completely Objective Biography by M. McDonald

Michael McDonald is not a singer. That’s the other guy. He is also not a professional fighter. That’s the other other guy. He’s also not an abusive unemployed alcoholic. That’s some of the rest of the Michael McDonalds out there. You’ve found the one who is best known for his ten years playing freaks on Mad TV. Michael got his start writing and performing for free at the famed Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles. His first paid writing and acting jobs came from Concorde Pictures, Roger Corman's infamous low-budget movie studio. Starting as an extra, McDonald landed dozens of roles in terrible movies. He eventually moved behind the camera to write and direct more terrible movies. Roger Corman still owes Michael money. Since those early poverty stricken years, Michael has divided his career into as many tiny hard-to-reassemble pieces as possible:

ACTING
Michael has usually worked in television, landing guest spots on SEINFELD, ELLEN, JUST SHOOT ME, and NEWS RADIO before landing on MAD TV in 1998. During his ten-year run, McDonald created several weird characters - most notably man-child Stuart Larkin, Marvin Tikkvah Rusty Miller, and The Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man. He was also forced to attempt many impressions, including Dr. Phil, Al Gore and most of the murders & politicians of that era. In 2007, McDonald left MAD TV because the wigs were really getting to him. He went on to guest star on more television shows, including SCRUBS, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, and PUSHING DAISIES. As of this writing by a completely impartial third party who has no connection to Michael what so ever, I – I mean Michael - currently has recurring roles on HOUSE OF LIES and WEB THERAPY. Both of these are on SHOWTIME, which means they are better than network shows, but they don’t pay very well. Michael’s first film role in years is as a bad guy in THE HEAT, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Watch for it in the summer of 2013.
