Mike Rizzo is a Brooklyn native who started making movies with his friends at the age of 12. Rizzo has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and has been in the post production industry for 17+ years. He has a wonderful bouffant of hair, can’t wait to meet Kurt Russell, and often gets called Dave Grohl in the street. (Happens a lot!)

Early on Rizzo and his brother created the comedy series Bay Rizz, where Rizzo portrayed ‘the Mayor of Bay Ridge’ getting praise from the NY Daily News as ‘the Borats of Brooklyn’.  He began taking on editing clients, in the film and music video space, strengthening his love for comedy editing and storytelling.

Now a commercial editor at Mackcut, some of his clients include Little Caesars, Priceline, Snickers, Netflix, PBS, Klondike Bar, Reese’s, Dunkin Donuts, Bud Light, Mountain Dew and more.

Most notably he earned recognition on editing the teasers and web film for the Bud Light “Up For Whatever” Super Bowl campaign in 2014. He has worked with well known directors like Jeff Tremaine (Jackass, Bad Grandpa), Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Saturday Night Live), Dan Powell (Inside Amy Schumer, The Break with Michelle Wolf), and all the top agencies.

In 2020 he edited a feature Give or Take, starring Norbert Leo Butz, Cheri Oteri & Joanne Tucker, which is distributed through Breaking Glass Pictures.

In 2024 Rizzo cut the Super Bowl campaign for Opendoor, which pushed the boundaries for creativity showing the first ever selling of a home live during halftime.

Rizzo is also one half of the musical comedy duo Bobo Touch, with his lifelong friend Brian Bonz. Their award-winning web series Bobo Touch Helpline has been officially selected in over 20 festivals worldwide and they’re always creating strange oddball content.
