Che, whose early years were spent slinging graphic T-shirts on the streets of NYC, took flight as a comedic force on a limited run of Daily Show appearances. After five years as an SNL cast member, in 2017 Che was named co-head writer of the legendary sketch show. A bit more lively than his news desk persona, Che’s brand of stand-up is an accumulation of what he does best — searing observational humor served dry AF.
Michel Che will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 13 at the Royal Oak Music Theatre; 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets start at $25.
