Manassas, VA – Comedy Tonight on Monday, February 28th at the NRB 2011 Convention in Nashville, TN will feature well-known comedian Michael Jr.

Once in a generation, a comedian comes along who speaks to everyone. Today, that comedian is known simply as Michael Jr.  He has performed in many venues including The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, The Late, Late Show, BET, Jimmy Kimmel Live, SiTV, and The Byron Allen Show. You’ll 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. His 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.

Michael Jr.’s comedy tour focuses on ministering to hurting souls across America – from the homeless on Skid Row in Los Angeles, to abused children in Colorado and imprisoned youth in California, to those suffering with HIV in Fort Worth, Texas.

It is this versatility that has enabled Michael to author a children’s book, The Parts We Play, to be featured in his successful comedy DVD, Thou Shalt Laugh. He also made his directorial debut with Comedy, The Road Less Traveled, released to churches in September 2010.
