About the show

A love letter to his late father, the owner of "Sid King's Crazy Horse Bar", Mike King reminisces about his life in dentistry, stand-up comedy, and growing up as the son of the infamous Sid King, "The Sultan of Striptease". More…

Mike's story is truly a heart-warming, comic tribute to his father. Mike has built his pediatric dental practice in an unusual manner as he incorporates comedy into his dental office in order to relax the children. Kid’s jokes and magic tricks are all part of his treatment. As a standup comedian, Mike has appeared on Comedy Central, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Evening at the Improv, and opened many times for Ray Romano. He also created the award winning web-series “My Friends Think I’m Funny," and recently completed his first children’s book, “Flossopher and The Brushing Trees.”
