Mick Miller

Mick was born, Michael Lawton, in Liverpool, in 1950.

After several jobs, and a close big-time call in football, and a spell in Israel, working on a Kibbutz, Mick found comedy after working at Pontins as a sports speaker, by listening to the visiting comedians. For Pontins he was allowed to work on his comedy act and develop it further.

His act improved and he soon became in demand. His reputation was growing, so he decided to move back north and it worked. He was able to work larger, more prestigious venues and became a regular support act to the big name acts, as well as overseas.

In 1976, Mick applied to go on the popular TV talent show, New Faces. He was accepted and won his heat. As a direct result, he was signed up for a national tour supporting Chuck Berry. Other tours followed, and in 1977 he was offered his first summer season in Morecombe.

It was during this time that he was spotted and immediately offered Mick a regular spot on ’0The Comedians’ TV show. He appeared alongside such household names as Roy Walker, Stan Boardman and Jim Bowen. He loved every minute of it and is still close friends with many of the team.

After the success of that show, Mick was offered other TV work. He appeared on such shows as Blankety Blank and The Little And Large Show. He was also given his own half hour TV special by Granada TV called ‘Success.’

Eventually, Mick was asked to co present a series called ‘The Funny Side’ along with Mike Smith and Cheryl Baker.

Thanks to shows such as ‘Des O’Connor Tonight’ he has appeared on TV every year since ‘The Comedians’.

Coming up to the present, Mick has appeared on the cult sports quiz, ‘They Think It’s All Over’ and had a ‘half hour special’ on Sky One. This was filmed in front of a live audience at a famous London comedy club. He is also very proud to be a regular guest on the popular daytime TV show, ‘Today With Des And Mel.’

In 2004, Johnny Hamp reunited four of the original comedians for a nationwide theatre tour. Mick, along with Roy Walker, Frank Carson and Ken Goodwin, played to packed houses up and down the country.
