His friends are in great sorrow. Such a man will be missed by everyone. "This one hits hard. Anyone that knew Mike knows how funny and talented he was.
I got to learn the nuances of screenwriting, getting insight and pointers from him when we collaborated on our script. I don’t think people realized how much of a genius he was, and that goes beyond comedy, even after me wanting to wring his hard-headed ass!
We lost a true talent. Gonna miss you, brother. I hope you’re making people laugh and people off wherever you are. Love you. RIP Mike Batayeh."
