Mike Bubbins is a Welsh comedian, actor, writer and podcaster.

Mike is a accomplished stand up comedian and performed at theatres and festivals across the UK. 2023 saw him embark on his first full stand up tour taking his show Throwback on the road to wide acclaim.

On television Mike has created, co-written and will star in the sitcom Mammoth which is on BBC TWO/iPlayer. He’s also starred in BBC Wales’ hit comedy series Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers, BBC 1’s Warren, BBC 2’s Josh, Dave’s Ultimate Worrier and Eat Your Heart Out, and BBC NI’s Soft Border Patrol.  He’s a regular on Would I Lie To You and won his week on House of Games.

He is an accomplished radio writer and performer. As well as being a regular guest host and presenter on various BBC Radio Wales programmes, he’s also appeared in productions as diverse as Kafka’s Metamorphosis, To Hull and Back, and Under The Stars, on BBC Radio 4, Radio 5’s Blood on the Tracks and Fighting Talk and has written, and starred in BBC Wales’ Mike Bubbins:Daytripper and Two Men One Job.

In Podcast land, Mike is one of the hosts of hugely successful Socially Distant Sports Bar podcast which recently sold out the Cardiff International Arena and a full UK tour. He also appears in the frankly awful The Demon Seed podcast alongside John ‘Eggsy’ Rutledge. Don’t listen to it. He is the anti-hero star of cult hit, and UK Podcast Comedy Award winning The Beef and Dairy Network, improvising the role of deranged slaughterhouse owner/religious leader Eli Roberts.

Lastly, and while he may be blowing his own trumpet, Mike’s pretty sure he’s the only comedy performer, writer & actor in the world who as well as being an ex-professional rugby player, coach and PE teacher has also been a finalist in the European Elvis Tribute Act Championship. Honestly.
