Michael Kosta is a stand-up comedian who currently hosts and co-executive produces The Comment Section for The Kardashian Network (formerly E!). The show, which is also produced by Joel McHale, deconstructs the daily goings-on of pop culture via social media. Previously, Michael was seen on Fox Sports 1’s, Crowd Goes Wild, on which he and Regis Philbin lead a panel of experts in a lighthearted look at the world of sports. Kosta started out as an athlete; he is quick to point out that he was once-ranked number 864 in the world in professional tennis and earned over $11,000 on tour. Don’t laugh, that’s $11,000 more than you made as a pro athlete.
Kosta gained attention as a comedian when he broke out of the HBO Comedy and Arts Festival in Aspen. He quickly relocated to Los Angeles where he began his television career; he made regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & Chelsea Lately before both those hosts drowned in their money and ended their shows. He has performed on Conan, @Midnight, Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and also starred in his own comedy special, Comedy Central Presents: Michael Kosta.
In 2015, Kosta released his first comedy album on Comedy Dynamics Records, Comedy For Attractive People. Please don’t listen to if you are ugly.
