• Mike DeStefano to debut one-man show “Drugs, Disease and Death: A Comedy”

    They say that a difficult, tumultuous life is prime fuel for comedy. If that’s the case, then Mike DeStefano has more than enough to last a lifetime.

    Drawing on a rough past that includes drug addiction, the loss of his wife, and an HIV diagnosis, DeStefano will move from his successful venture on NBC’s Last Comic Standing to a new one man show called Drugs, Disease and Death: A Comedy.

    Though the subject matter is heavy (to say the very least), it may be perfect for DeStefano’s raw style.

    The show debuts on Feb. 7 at the Producer’s Club Theater in New York City, so you have three weeks to prepare yourself for some intense, emotional comedy. Buy your tickets here!
