Michael E. Sanders


Born Michael Edwin Neil Sanders on July 20, 1969 in Smyrna, Georgia he is named after Michael Collins. Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, the first three astronauts to land on the moon. Michael, as his mother prefers him to be called, had a passion for three things as a young child: pro wrestling, stand-up comedy, and auctioneering. After serving four years in the United States Army, in 1998, Mike was headed to The Punchline Comedy Club in Atlanta, GA to pursue a career in stand up comedy. A year later, Mike made his debut on World Championship Wrestling (WCW) where he was affectionately known as "Above Average" Mike Sanders. He went on to become a one time cruiser-weight champion, WCW commissioner and leader of The Natural Born Thrillers. After his pro wrestling days, he pursued his love of being a stand-up comedian headlining comedy clubs throughout the US. Michael's passion to entertain did not stop there. He was given the opportunity to audition for Army Wives taking his first step into the acting arena. Not only did he impress casting to the point of offering him a role bigger than the one he auditioned for he captured the eye of several casting directors which lead to roles on Single Ladies and Drop Dead Diva with a guest star appearances on Necessary Roughness. His fast talking skills and experience gave Michael all he needed to go back to his roots and passion and step right into his role of the Auctioneer in Devil's Knot. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his children, Kenneth and Alexis, traveling and working out and yes he still enjoys southern auctioneering as his hobby.
