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 think I owe Rosie an apology. THIS is the worst talk show ever made! Seriously folks, it doesn't get much worse than this. The only thing more mind boggiling than the fact that this show actually exists is how it manages to stay on the air. (Its STILL on as I write this!)
Mike Bullard is not funny. There is no other way to for me to say this. He is just not funny. His monologue connsits of him taking cheap shots at his audience, then smiling like a squirrel with a shotgun pointed at him and chuckling while the auidence sits in silence and then gives him the token mercy laugh. His guests are mostly no-names. Even the guests I've heard of are still nothing to write home about (Burt Reynolds? Ben Stein? Please, spare me!)
In short, this show stinks! The only worse than the show is the fact that there are actually people who support this garbage. Anytime I hear about people saying that "Open Mike" is great Canadian television, I want to shoot myself!
Rating: Negative 100 stars!!!!
