Comic/Storyteller/Magician/Clown/Artist/Fool MICHAEL TRAUTMAN is bringing a trifecta of top-notch entertainment to MSA!
Michael Trautman started out in life as a fairly normal kind of person. After growing up in Springfield, Illinois, he studied Political Science with the intention of becoming a lawyer. After college, Michael decided the legal profession was not going to be as much fun as he felt one should have with their career, so he started looking for something fun and fulfilling. This led him to his first Mime class. Shortly after he was invited to become a founding member of Mimewock, a Kansas City based school & performing company. Since then, he has been having fun performing throughout the world, and has achieved a very high level of fulfillment from providing comic relief to those in need.
