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

I remember this show only I remember it under the title "Open Mike with Mike Bullard", and it was terrible! I had no idea it lasted several years and I don't see how it lasted one full episode let alone one full season or even the several seasons it apparently was on TV for! Mike Bullard was the worst Canadian talk show host ever, even worse than Popcultured, although there is now one who is even worse, Frank D'Angelo from the Being Frank Show with Frank D'Angelo that is nothing more than a guy who is buying his own advertising time (Frank D'Angelo owns Cheeta Energy Drinks) to have his own talk show.
Anyway Mike Bullard was a terrible host, the jokes were never funny and he was just mean to people half the time, the audience just looked uncomfortable and would force laughter to be nice. All the sketches and jokes they did were just groan worthy bad.
