Mike Tornabene met his partner called Gian Hunjan in their second grade of high school. Both of them were big fans of Nike footwear which somehow connected them, and they got along very good.
Gian and him worked in a restaurant while they were on their last year of high school and before the restaurant was closing, they always performed for the kitchen staff and entertained them.
They were preforming their comedy sketches and their colleagues liked it very much, which made them think about how good of a partners they are. They started training their acts to get better and acted together as often as they could.
Even after they went their own ways after high school (Gian was going to Temple University, and Mike went to New York University) they were always in touch.
In that period they were writing their first comedy screenplays, using video chat to talk to each other. They had a very strong bond that stayed the same even after their separation.
They already had their screenplay and a pilot comedy project when they finished their college education.
The duo decided to make a Facebook page called “Mike and Gian Comedy” in 2009. At first it wasn’t really popular, but after some time it got recognized in the public and they got a lot of subscribers.
The first sketch they ever uploaded on their YouTube channel was called “The Intern”. Gian had a role of the intern in this video.
In 2010, both Mike and Gian graduated and started taking any jobs they got so they could get the money they needed to move to the city. They wanted to move so they could sell their screenplays more efficiently. They wanted to try and get succesful in comedy.
Mike got a degree in Film and TV on the New York University Tisch School of Arts which is an extremely difficult study.
Gian on the other hand, graduated in finance, although he knew he wanted to do comedy. His knowledge regarding money help the duo after they blew up.
Mike was also studying for a personal trainer exam.
At the end of the year they moved to the Upper East Side. Mike and Gian worked whole day and did comedy all night. It was really hard for them but they trully believed in the project they were doing.
They got an idea and created a character they called Dom Mazetti. They wanted him to be a dumb Italian in one of their cooking sketches.
They improved the character and at the end he was supposed to talk about important topics in a satirical way. First time Dom appeared in a bomb scare video that got a lot of attention.
They started making a lot of videos featuring Dom and after a while decided it was best to use Dom as their main character.
One of the most popular Dom’s videos were the ones where he talks about college life.
Gian and Mike’s most famous channel is “BroScienceLife”.
Right now, Mike is dating a beautiful girl Leah Marie Deming. They are soon to be married. Her field of expertise is graphic design and she also manages social marketing at Trainor Associates.

They often put photos of them together on their social media accounts. Although he has a really full schedule, he always find time for Leah.
Mike is training since he was only 14. He made his schedule himself, and trains by it for a long time. He is in incredible shape.

In 2016, Mike published his book named “The Swoly Bible: The Broscience Way of Life”. It was under the name of Dom Mazzetti. He wanted to become a first illiterate best selling author so he asked his fans to buy this book so he could make his goal. The book is about fitness and is really satirical.
