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, Comedy Central, TV One, The Late,
Late Show, BET, Jim my Kimmel Live, SiTV, and The Byron Allen Show. 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 DVD THOU SHALF LAUGH, and to have
made his directorial debut with COMEDY: THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED available now.
Parking at the Omni is limited. We suggest you take the Metro to Woodley Park station. The hotel is just 1/2 block from the station.
Print out your ticket and show it at the door. Michaels performance will be in the Regency Ballroom of the Omni Shoreham Hotel.
