Mike Bullard, best known for his live act as MC at Mark Breslin's famed YukYuk's Comedy Club hosted this late night television show for five years, starting on the Comedy Network and then moving to CTV before jumping producers and networks for a final season on Global. Broadcast live before a studio audience in downtown Toronto's legendary Masonic Temple, Open Mike with Mike Bullard featured panel guests and one musical or comedy act. It featured both national and international stars but kept its focus on the interaction between Bullard and the audience. Written by

This is not a slam against Mike Bullard. Off this show, the guy's hilarious. He MC'd a fundraiser in Guelph a couple of years ago and had everybody in stitches. People still talk about it, and he was very generous to donate his time to the event. But this show has to go. It's just so bad it's beyond words. He's not a bad interviewer, but the audience usually gives him nothing to work with and his monologues rely upon audience participation. The problem is, is that they're usually so bad nobody would ever want to participate and interact with them. And it's a shame, because in other fori Mr. Bullard is a pretty good comedian.
