Mike is a self-declared fraud and this amazing comedy genius is known for his Mr. Plinkett voice in the ‘Plinkett Reviews’. Alongside Jay Bauman, his sidekick, Stoklasa has been serving as one of the best comedic duos on ‘Half in the Bag’. Mike was motivated to do his first ever review on Star Grek Generations after watching the film for the second time in 2008. Since then, he is having a rollercoaster ride which only seems to go up. Many might think of a puffy-eyed guy when they hear Mike’s name but he has had to live with a lifelong allergy; it is nothing threatening but just makes his eyes swell up.
According to Stoklasa, he felt the need to review the movie because it “completely messed up the transition to the big screen from what was a really great TV show”. This inspired him to share his views with other Star Trek fans. By the looks of it. Stoklasa is doing just what he loves to do. He definitely had a gift with reviewing movies and the videos command millions of views. For some years now, Mike like the Fine Brothers has been one of, if not the most popular YouTubers.

According to some rumors, Mike Stoklasa is dating Jessi Nakles. You might remember her from the 2011 movie The Great Space Jam. However, both of these artists have not commented on the rumors. There has been no proof that suggests they are still together or that have even broken up. So by the looks of it, in absence of evidence about his romantic life, Stoklasa definitely appears to be single. He has been focusing himself on his movie reviews and has kept his personal life quiet.
Mike Stoklasa: Character Development of Mr. Plinkett
Reader’s discretion is advised! (It’s all fictional, or so we have been told.)
It must be extremely frustrating for Mike when his character is more famous than him. He, however, has been able to bring life to his fictitious character and many who have heard the character Harry S. Plinkett’s voice might find his character development quite interesting. Mr. Plinkett is a feeble old serial killer who kidnaps hookers; Yes you read it right! Mike created this fictional character because he found his own voice boring.

Mr. Plinkett, according to Stoklasa, is a 106-year-old psychotic who came to America on Titanic’s first cruise in the year 1912. Predictably, his father lost his life and his mother managed to escape the sinking. This hooker-kidnapper (if that’s the right term) met his soulmate and got married to her. Now he is a father with two kids- a son and a daughter. His creator Mike says that Harry has a special love for his family and seems to care for their well-being.
Later, Mr. Plinkett met Bambi, a waitress at the Taj Mahal Casino. The two ended up getting married, but Harry discovered that Bambi was taking money out of his wallet. The old serial killer took his wife’s life by slitting her wrist in the bathtub. He even made payments to a prostitute to write a fake suicide note for Bambi. Morale- Even if you are married to a kidnapper, you should under no circumstance take his money!
