Mike Rita

Born and raised in Toronto.
Based in Wasaga Beach.

I am so lucky to have been given what a lot of people will look at as a small opportunity in life and made the most of it. And now I get to travel the world and people pay to hear me speak. A small boy from a small neighbourhood in a big city. UnbelievableMike Rita.

Mike Rita turned his experiences of growing up in a Portuguese working-class immigrant family and in a low-income neighbourhood in West downtown Toronto into the inspiration for his prolific career as a comedian. Besides the quirks and mannerisms of his ethnic background, his parents’ hard work ethic helped him break past the low expectations often placed on working-class Portuguese-Canadian boys and became a successful comedian in Toronto and across the Portuguese diaspora.
