Michele Balan

MICHELE BALAN is a classy woman with attitude, but sometimes the class has to move over for the attitude! She was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and title holder of Last Woman Comic Standing. Michele was voted one of the Top 10 Comics by The San Francisco Bay Times and Backstage Magazine also placed her in their national Top 10 winners.

Michele headlines around the country at leading comedy clubs, corporate events, JCCs, country clubs, on cruises, and festivals such as Montreal’s Just for Laughs. She is appropriate for all audiences...well, maybe not children's parties! She is a recurring performer on The Joy Behar Show, and has numerous appearances on HBO, Showtime, Comedy Central, Byron Allen's Comics Unleashed, and E!. Along with her standup, Michele writes for many well-known comedians and is a contributor to a variety of magazines.

Often told she was naturally funny, this Brooklyn native left a high-paying executive position at a computer company to pursue comedy and has been performing ever since. Her fans are forever grateful. The New York Post calls her “dynamite,” and The Friars Club raves, “Michele Balan is on a roll—there is no stopping her!”
