Since getting his start as an intern on the Howard Stern Show — where his days usually consisted of nothing more strenuous than cleaning the King of All Media's daily baked potato lunch — Mitch Fatel's comedy career hasn't been what you’d call an overnight success. Post-Stern (he famously recommended his friend, "Stuttering" John Melendez, for his old position), he's taken the slow-burn approach to building a fan base, eschewing his old Stern connections in favor of road-dawging it at comedy clubs across the greater 48. His style is dryly laconic — think Stephen Wright plus Mitch Hedburg — but he can go blue with the best of them. Unlike many Stern-spun stand-ups, however, there's also a more sensitive side to Fatel that makes even the sauciest stuff ultimately palatable.
