More About Michael Jr.:
Imagine a line from Bugs Bunny to Bill Cosby and you'll have an idea of Michael's influences. Watch him onstage and you'll see a man at ease...with himself, his audience, and his message. Listen to his voice and you'll detect a comfortable, conversational style that hides a sly sense of mischief. Hear his words and you'll laugh at the universal themes that connect us all.
Michael Jr.'s entry into comedy was almost preordained. Years ago in a crowded Grand Rapids, Michigan movie theater, the projector malfunctioned. The film snapped, the house lights came on, and acting on a dare, young Michael jumped in front of the restless crowd and took center stage. When the theater manager tried to usher him out, the audience demanded he stay...and Michael Jr. discovered his gift.
Comedian George Wallace offered Michael his first break when he took him to the legendary Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, home of Jay Leno and The Tonight Show staff. The club s owner slipped Michael onstage...and a week later Michael was performing at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, where he became the first comedian to ever appear live via satellite on The Tonight Show. That performance catapulted Michael s career and has resulted in additional appearances on The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, The Late, Late Show, BET, Jimmy Kimmel Live, SiTV, The Byron Allen Show, and any more.
You 'l also find him at the most prestigious comedy clubs across the nation, including The Improv, The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, The Punchline, The Comic Strip, and Zany's. And if that's not enough, Michael s versatility takes him from major universities such as Notre Dame, the University of Massachusetts, and the University of Alabama, to church events ranging from the 60,000 member Willow Creek Church in Chicago to the 17,000 member West Angeles Church in L.A. And now, you can see him in Thou Shalt Laugh, a comedy DVD released by Warner Bros.

"Most comedians go on stage to get a laugh, but Michael Jr. goes on stage to bring an opportunity to laugh…TO EVERYONE! Watch how this genuinely funny man is moved by a chance glance, moved to share his comedy in a new way because of a homeless man. It not only makes you laugh, but it makes you cry and hopefully makes you think. The bottom line is: everyone desires a good laugh. How about you?"

"Serious Inspiration without being Serious. After seeing Michael Jr. live, I purchased the dvd. Comedians with a message miss the connection that Michael Jr. makes with his audiences. Instead of speaking to a crowd that is comfortable and can afford the price of a ticket, Michael brings his humor to people who desperately need the gift of laughter. The responses sampled in the video inspire me to connect with those who have not had the blessings I have had in my life. I recommend this dvd to anyone who has a strong heart center and wants to find a way to create a better world. Michael Jr. has his finger on the pulse on what the hurting need."

"Michael Jr. is a very talented comedian who is funny without being crude or rude and without cursing. It is hard to find a comedian who is genuinely funny and doesn't feel the need to include an "F" word every 5-10 seconds. I have had the pleasure of seeing Michael Jr. perform and if you get the chance to, I would highly recommend it."
