Castle Performed Comedy Improv in Chicago

The Chicago native always dreamed of becoming an actor. According to Mike Castle’s mother, his love for the entertainment industry sparked when he performed in his fourth-grade production of The Wizard of Oz.

Castle went to acting workshops and improv groups. When he was a teen, he performed comedy at Second City, iO, and UCB. But he hid his aspirations and side gigs from his friends.

“In Beverly, I felt that there were a lot of expectations to be cool or tough, and I didn’t have those qualities,” said Castle. “It was kind of this dual identity almost, where I would do this secret thing where I do improv unbeknownst to my peers. And then when I was like 15 or 16, some of my high school friends found out, and they thought it was cool. And then that was a surprising turn for me to have this thing that I was doing as a secret suddenly be cool to these South Side guys.”

After honing his talents in comedy, improv, and writing, Castle transitioned to working on-camera. He made appearances in TV shows and worked in short films. And then Castle got his first major role in TBS’ Clipped alongside Ashley Tisdale and his future wife, Lauren Lapkus.

Though the series was cancelled after one season, Castle had gotten noticed. He went on to make appearances in Grace & Frankie, American Dad, and #Vanlife.

Mike Castle now gets to work alongside another OITNB alum, Alan Aisenberg, in Brews Brothers, a Netflix comedy about two brothers running the family brewery business. Castle has a few more projects in the works, but he’s hoping that Brews Brothers gets enough love to be renewed for a season 2.
