Mike Fasolo (born January 28, 1969 in Tuxedo, New York) is an American writer best known for his work on the television show Robot Chicken.

Fasolo was born and raised in the small town of Tuxedo, New York. He graduated from Tuxedo High School and went on to attend Ramapo College of New Jersey where he earned his BA in Literature. While writing as always been a passion, his first break came when he was hired as a journalist at a local paper, the Photo News, where his maiden story landed on the front page.

In 1994 Fasolo joined the staff of Wizard Magazine as the head of the Research Department, where he was in charge of gathering information and illustrations on anything and everything that was spotlighted in the issues. After a few months at Wizard, Mike was offered a job in the Editorial Department of Wizard's sister magazine, InQuest. There he was put in charge of the news section where he reported on card games, board games, collectibles, and similar games. He found these less interesting than comics, so moved back to Wizard six months later, as a copy editor and staff writer.

At Wizard, Fasolo became friends with Matt Senreich, one of the creators of Robot Chicken. In 2004 Cartoon Network picked up Robot Chicken and Senreich asked Fasolo to move to California to be a writer on the show. Fasolo accepted and has been there ever since. He is about to begin writing on his fifth season of the number one rated, Emmy Award winning, Adult Swim show.

Besides writing for Robot Chicken, Fasolo is also working on projects including feature films, television series, cartoons, comics, and game shows. He is currently represented by the Gersh Agency.

Fasolo is an Emmy Award Winning Writer, Voice Actor and Creative Director on the Adult Swim Television Program, Robot Chicken. He also won an Annie Award for writing on Robot Chicken in 2008.
