“Fresh,” “Insightful,” and “Hilarious” are just a few words used to describe Comedian Mike Goodwin. He has dedicated his gift to bringing clean comedy back to families, communities and the workplace.
A Camden, South Carolina native, Mike entered the United States Army after graduating from Camden High School and served as an active duty and reserve soldier for 14 years. After his active duty service, Mike enrolled at Lander University in Greenwood, South Carolina. While attending Lander, Mike was initiated into the Gamma Nu Chapter of kappa Alpha Psi and later assisted in chartering the Omicron Nu Chapter.
The seeds of comedy were also planted at Lander where Mike hosted a myriad of events and served as a student ambassador for the college. Mike’s comedic gift did not begin to flourish though until he dedicated his life to Christ at a New Year’s service in 1998. Ironically, a New Year’s service some years later was the birthplace of Comedian Mike Goodwin.
Mike graduated from Lander University with Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and later graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Master of Education. As a student affairs professional, he has presented at a number of professional conferences. A strong advocate for service, Mike has volunteered with a number of civic, fraternal, professional, and non-profit organizations, and mentors many secondary school and college students.
Mike incorporates his life experience into his roles as a comedian, writer and motivational speaker. What keeps COMEDIAN Mike Goodwin GROUNDED is his love for his family and his devotion to his spiritual family at Right Direction Christian Center in Columbia, South Carolina where he serves as an Elder.
Some comedians are born funny, while others work hard at being funny; but then there are those who are anointed to be funny. Mike is flowing in the anointing. Mike currently lives in Columbia, South Carolina with his wife Rozalynn and their lovely daughter.

What Others are Saying…
Mike Goodwin was as funny as a Fruit of Islam member trying to sell “Final Calls” at a church revival. Mike had great stage presence and a strong command of his material. Great set! He gave everyone a wonderful time to laugh!
Kukhautusha Croom, Writer and Producer BET’s “A Time to Laugh”
Mike has a unique look and a unique act. He’s a class on his own. A classic act. Very funny and clean. What I saw of his act was very impressive. The other 500 people at the show can tell you the same thing.

Mike Goodwin is original, clean and funny. What you’re not going to do, is sit through his show without laughing. That’s what you’re not going to do.
