Taking the mick/mike/michael are variants of "Taking the mickey" which is Cockney Rhyming Slang. In full it is "Taking the Mickey Bliss" rhyming with... taking the piss meaning to poke fun at someone either humorously or aggressively. Sometimes reworded to "extracting the michael"
Are you taking the mick/mickey? (extracting the michael)
