Mike Fasolo (born January 28, 1969 in Tuxedo, New York) is an American writer. He was born and raised in the small town of Tuxedo, New York. Mike graduated from the comparatively small Tuxedo High School and went on to attend Ramapo College of New Jersey where he earned his BA in Literature. While writing as always been a passion, his first break came when he was hired as a journalist at a local paper, THE PHOTO NEWS, where his maiden story landed on the front page.
In 1994, Mike joined the staff of Wizard Magazine as the head of the Research Department, where he was in charge of gathering information and illustrations on anything and everything that was spotlighted in the issues. After a few months at Wizard, Mike was lured over into the Editorial Department of Wizard's sister magazine, InQuest. There he was put in charge of the news section where he reported the latest and greatest on card games, board games, collectibles, and similar games. But card games weren't as enjoyable as comic books, so after a brief six months, Wizard Magazine claimed him back as a copy editor and staff writer.
And it was at Wizard that Mike became friends with Matt Senreich, one of the creators of Robot Chicken. In 2004, Cartoon Network picked up Robot Chicken and Senreich asked Mike to relocate to California to be a writer on the show. Mike accepted and has been there ever since. He is about to begin writing on his fifth season of the number one rated, Emmy Award winning, Adult Swim show.
Besides writing for Robot Chicken, Mike also has many of his own projects in the works including feature films, television series, cartoons, comics, and game shows. He is currently represented by the Gersh Agency and is a writer for MAD.
