While Michelle Buteau has successfully established herself in the entertainment industry as a performer and a host, it is pretty obvious that being a comedian is her calling. Owing to the admiration she has been increasingly gathering from her endeavours in showbiz, one would find it hard to disagree with Michelle when she gets all boastful, bragging about how she brings “a cheeky swagger, unique perspective and big personality to stage and screen.”
True, most of Michelle Buteau’s fame came from her being a co-host of VHI’s weekday entertainment show (Big Morning Buzz Live) with the popular recording and television star, Nick Lachey. But then, that’s not all that has been fuelling her popularity. The comedian has been active in a handful of other VHI’s productions.
It is probable that the most known of them is the Best Week Ever comedy series which earned her a nomination for the New Now Next Award. You will also find Michelle in Key and Peele – the sketch comedy tv series Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele created for Comedy Central and in Broad City, a comedy television series of Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson. Also, she is known for 2014’s Enlisted and 2017’s The Tick. Many people couldn’t stop listening to Shut Up, her debut comedy album. These and other gigs have been responsible for Buteau’s soaring fame in the entertainment industry.
Earning more respect each day as a comedian, writer and actress, Michelle Buteau once specified that her career choices weren’t inspired by the need of being seen. According to her, she is part of the entertainment industry because that’s her purpose. If she is not writing, performing or creating something, she feels as though she isn’t breathing fine and dehydrated.
Buteau would agree that doing comedy for television is cool. Nonetheless, she prefers the online comedy scene. The reason for this isn’t far-fetched, there are too many rules and regulations for television. Michelle likes the fact of her being able to do whatever she wants in the digital space.
