Michael Jr. exposes the humorous side of being human and living life as a Christian. In “Pray with Your Neighbor,” Michael tells the story of his own experience as a new Christian, attending church for the first time. Unfamiliar with worship terminology, or communicating with God, he struggles and stumbles through a prayer. Not knowing what to say, Michael hilariously creates a montage by borrowing popular lines from a variety of sources that include television commercials and popular songs.
Michael learned early on he had a natural ability to make people laugh and began using his talent to bring a little sunshine to the lives of others. Whether sharing personal experiences, making general observations or analyzing biblical events, Michael Jr. finds humor by tapping into the less than perfect traits that bind us all to the human condition.
As a Christian and a stand-up comedian, Michael uses this comedic approach when sharing his thoughts and beliefs concerning spiritual matters with a broad spectrum of audiences. In an easy-going, down to earth manner, Michael regularly expresses his insights before live theater audiences, churches filled with parishioners and prison inmates. No stranger to television, Michael has had guest appearances on Comedy Central, The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
