Biography

Raised in the frozen lands of Utica, New York, Mike’s earliest lessons in dramatic writing took the form of shoveling snow, which his father assured would help him “build character.” He started writing sketches while an undergrad in his school’s Musical Theater Club to cover for complicated costume changes. That was his first taste of putting words in other peoples’ mouths, and he found he liked it. After college, Mike moved to New York City to further his misguided pursuits.

While in NYC, he studied sketch comedy at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater in NYC, received an MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and was a member of The Armory’s sketch team Be Kind, Rewind.

Mike has taught dramatic writing to students in NYU Tisch Drama’s Future Theatre Artists Program. He is currently an undergraduate admissions reader for NYU Tisch’s Rita and Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing, as well as a writer for Konami Cross Media NY.

Testimonials

[Homeland Security] is a very well-done pilot. From the start the writer demonstrates an expert use of visuals and action to convey storytelling rather than relying on dialogue alone.
— Austin Film Festival, 2018
A wry swipe at modern relationships and furniture shopping with a classical Greek twist, Mike Revenaugh’s comic-horror Crete and Barrel quickly delivers the goods before throwing away the instructions and getting stuck into some fast paced comic-horror.
— Steve Miles, Script Revolution
As a laugh-out-loud comedy filled with quirky characters, witty dialogue, and energetically sharp delivery, this incredibly unique, and uniquely refreshing, story manages to not only invite you along for the ride, but to fall in love with the characters, and dare I say curling, along the way.
