DC Theatre Scene “Thumbs Up” Review

…it is Minneapolis-based Venske’s acting that anchors the piece solidly…Venske attacks with enthusiasm…left the audience in stitches…Venske is at his best, unafraid to bust a move or pull out a silly dialect. His intensity is impressive…he doesn’t disappoint…enjoyable experience from beginning to end…

-Julia Katz, DC Theatre Scene

DC Metro Theater Arts “Thumbs Up” Review

…a one-man show deftly performed by Michael Venske…there’s so much good stuff you’ll hear…you’ll also experience some brilliant acting…this is Michael’s first one-man show, but you’d be surprised considering how well he performs and how well its delivered…

-Grace Kim, DC Metro Theatre Arts

Live Event Hosting: Securian Financial Group

Securian Financial Group tapped me for their all-company meeting to appear as “Rick Clark” the host of Securian Bandstand. In addition to 2,400 Securian employees at St. Paul’s River Centre the event was also streamed around the world for employees unable to attend.


A moment of silence, please.

Feedback: On-Camera Client

“Michael did a superb job, very professional. We were impressed that he could memorize such a dull and corporate content filled script. With his skills and hard work we were ahead of schedule throughout the shoot. Not to mention his performance was in front of the clients (they loved him too)”
