More Than Funny: An Exclusive Interview with Michael Jr.

Comedian Michael Jr. got his start at the legendary Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. Even though the club is home of Jay Leno and “The Tonight Show” staff, the club’s owner slipped the unknown comic onstage to perform. A week later Michael Jr. was performing at the “Just for Laughs” comedy festival in Montreal and became the first comedy to ever appear via satellite on “The Tonight Show.”

Michael tours the country performing and can be seen regularly on TV and in movies, most recently appearing in the Kendrick Brothers film War Room.

I recently chatted with Michael about his start in comedy, how he writes and performs his shows, and about his new film More Than Funny, showing in theaters for one night only on October 18th.
The comedy special, filmed before a live audience, is a mix between his stand up routine and the stories of three real life people that will motivate and inspire you.
