Mike polk jr s letters to his student loan officer
Early life and education
Polk was born in Warren, Ohio. He attended Kent State University as an undergraduate and earned a degree in communications and psychology in 2002.
He sang his YouTube song "One Semester of Spanish - Love Song" for Kim Kardashian on Spanish television channel Telemundo. That video has received over 9.4 million views on YouTube. He thanked his viewers as "Spanish Mike" when the video hit 2 Million views.
Some of his other work includes "Ooh Girl!" - An Honest R&B Song"., "The Great Office War", "The Factory of Sadness" and two different versions of a "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video" all of which have about 20 million views combined on YouTube. The tourism spoof video actually prompted Cleveland's convention and tourism bureau to solicit other videos in a 'counterattack' to Polk's not-so-flattering work. Segments of the Cleveland tourism videos were also featured in the Michael Moore documentary film Capitalism: A Love Story.
In 2016, Polk became a writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, doing periodic columns about pop culture and humor.
Polk was named as one of Cleveland Magazine's Most Interesting People of 2010.
In 2013 readers of Scene Magazine voted him to be Cleveland's Best Local Comedian and Best Local Author for his book Damn Right I'm From Cleveland.
