With a background in journalism and comedy, Mike Durrett was the About.com Guide to Web Humor from 1998-2009.

Mike starred in the 1995 Golden Twinkies Awards' "Best Comedy" film (World Premiere: Grauman's Chinese Theatre!) and scripts, directs, and mugs in home movie comedies. He fittingly joined About.com on April Fool's Day 1998.
