Best Karaoke MC - 2001
On Friday nights at 11 p.m., MAGIC MIKE starts working the crowd at the Backyard. He circulates through this sorta-swanky Williamsburg restaurant and bar, boisterously chatting up and charming customers. Most of his new friends give in and request a song, if only to please their good-natured host. Besides, it's free. To get things going, Mike belts out a Tom Jones or Ricky Martin tune. He has MC'd karaoke since his late teens, and currently works with Star Tracks, hosting karaoke around the city. Star Tracks, 718-899-0053.
