In this episode, I had the honor of sitting down with the man behind Open Mike's inside of Florida Discount Music. Anyone who lives in Melbourne knows Open Mike's for its live music, live comedy, delicious food, freshly made coffee, and amazing staff. To me, Open Mike's is a godsend. It's my favorite place to do comedy and most other central Florida comics agree, this place just plain rocks.
Mike and I talked about the birth of Open Mike's, how F.D.M. went from music store to one of the coolest hang out spots in central Florida, Mike's band Konglom, what it's like to run a business, buying F.D.M. back in 2003 with his wife Lisa, and MORE!
