About Michael Jr.: Comedian George Wallace offered Michael Jr. 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 with Jay Leno, Comedy Central, TV One, The Late, Late Show, BET, Jimmy Kimmel Live, SiTV, and Comedy TV.  His clean comedy has earned him national crossover appeal giving him a platform on both church and comedy club stages. It is this versatility that has enabled Michael to author a children’s book, The Parts We Play, to be featured in the wildly successful comedy, Thou Shalt Laugh DVD series and to have made his directorial debut with his award winning documentary Comedy: The Road Less Traveled. His current multi-city tour Stand-Up and Give is an extension of the purpose of Comedy: The Road Less Traveled. Michael's stand-up comedy special, Laughin g On Purpose, is now available on DVD at and in retail stores.
