Michael Broussard (aka Michael Subvert) began his performing career back in 2003, when he wrote, directed and starred in the hit Philadelphia Fringe Festival show, “Altar Boy: The Musical”.
Michael trained at the Walnut Street Theatre with Jose Aviles and Heather Krause and at Philly Improv Theater with Kristen Schier and Amie Roe.
Notable screen roles include Richard in the Philly-themed anthology feature “Hoagie”, a crazed stalker in the horror short “Dixie”, Ed in the international web series “The Groom”, the Nerdy School Photographer in the MTV hit music video “Bang Pop” by the band Free Energy, and as Benny Filbert in “A Turn of the Blinds” (starring alongside Brian Anthony Wilson aka Det. Vernon Holley of HBO’s “The Wire”).
Onstage Michael has played an obnoxious hospital administrator in the play “Insurance” at the Freedom Theater, a “cheaters”-type TV Host in “Domestic Relations” at the Adrienne, and of course the protagonist Mikey in the abovementioned “Altar Boy”.
In addition to his work as an actor, Michael also fronts a 50s-style rock n’ roll, blues, swing and country band, Crazy Man Crazy, and he hosts and produces “The Five Minute Follies”, an onstage tribute to the golden age of variety.
