Michael Spicer was born in Barking, Essex. Despite this setback at an early age, Michael persevered.
When he was 19, he sent a sketch to Spitting Image. They used it but changed the punchline and so didn’t pay him. He now treats latex puppets with deep suspicion.
He’s done short films. They were good. He learnt a lot. He won an award in New York for one of them. Unfortunately, he was on a plane back to the UK as Alec Baldwin was waiting for him to collect his award. That kind of sums Michael up. They sent the award by post. It’s a bit of a shit glass thing but he likes it anyway.
Michael has also co-written and performed a play at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This was ages ago. The poisonous piss of Perrier was still flowing down the Royal Mile back then. However, it was during this show that Michael realised he had a gift for comedy – because The Scotsman newspaper said so.
I have also…sorry, Michael has also starred in a few things as a comedy actor. He has appeared in MI High – which is a children’s show on the BBC about spies in a school or something, bit improbable – and a recent Nectar card commercial, proving that if the money’s right, he’ll willingly drop-kick his moral compass into the path of a heavy hauler.
This is the stage of the bio where I’m supposed to write vague details about Michael’s ‘future projects’ as if he’s Tom Cruise or something. He’s working on a sitcom, he’s had talks with a production company about a film script, he’s cloned an eagle, he’s taken up archery, etc. However, the truth is he now faffs about, producing his own stuff online and developing the tiniest of tiny cult followings on Twitter.
And these things give him enormous pleasure.
