Star 99.1 presents ‘The More Than Funny Tour’ with Michael Jr., Friday, April 27, 7:30 p.m., at Zarephath Ministry Center, 2 Ministry Center Drive, Zarephath, NJ.
Michael Jr.’s entry into comedy was almost preordained. Years ago in a crowded Grand Rapids, Michigan movie theater, the projector malfunctioned. The film snapped, the house lights came on and acting on a dare, young Michael jumped in front of the restless crowd and took center stage. When the theater manager tried to usher him out, the audience demanded that he stay… and Michael Jr. discovered his gift. As a Christian, Michael Jr. recognizes he’s been given this platform “not to get, but to give.” Michael Jr. often uses his performances to remind his audience that the gift God has given them is for the benefit of others and not only themselves.
