Michael Lington Is A Stand-Up Guy

Saxophonist Michael Lington is taking classes at a Los Angeles comedy club.

Now we’ve learned that Michael is honing his skills even more through an improv class at the famous Groundlings Theater on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood.

Michael says that he’s been taking weekly classes and that he just graduated from the round of sessions. He says he’s having a lot of fun and that the classes have helped not only his stage presence but also his social skills. He’s already signed up for classes during the next semester.

Groundlings, a sketch comedy group, has graduated such notable talent as Will Farrell, Lisa Kudrow, Jon Lovitz and Cheri Otari.

Lington's most recent CD, Stay With Me, includes the current hit single “Two Of A Kind.”
