Mitch Factor is a Seminole and Menominee Indian who was born the youngest of ten and raised in Oklahoma by a very loving and strong family. 

 

     Mitch had the gift of humor at an early age and was able to make any situation humorous when given the chance.  Mitch began his stand-up comedy journey at "Bricktown's Comedy Warehouse" and "Jokers Comedy Club" in Oklahoma City.  With three comedy tours under his belt, Mitch reminds us that it is okay to laugh at the harsh realities of life. His comedy covers subjects such as family, work, children, Native American way of life and simply being human. His comedy also includes original characters such as "Joseph From Up Nort" who sings an original blues song titled "Fry Bread Momma, Why Did You Sit On my Dog and Kill Him? and "Garage Sale Babe".  Mitch performs comedy simply because he loves to see people laugh together.

 

     In 1992 he was a stunt double for Wes Studi in the 20th Century Fox film, "Last of the Mohicans".  This opened the door for a television miniseries, TNT's "Broken Chain".
