Michael Kosta

Stand Up Comedy

Michael Kosta is a stand-up comedian who was recently host and co-executive producer of "The Comment Section" for The Kardashian Network (formerly E!). Previously, he was seen on Fox Sports 1’s "Crowd Goes Wild," on which he and Regis Philbin led 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 No. 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. He also was a regular on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and "Chelsea Lately." Kosta has had a half-hour special on Comedy Central, and can currently be seen on Comedy Central’s Snapchat series "Worst Birthday," which is based on his successful podcast. He also is the star and creator of the webseries "Sports. Kosta. Basement.," which is currently in production as a series for Verizon’s Go90 network.
