"I'm pumped about bringing the funny to this Courageous Dads project. Dads are courageous and should be honored and also need to laugh and be seen laughing," states Michael. "I love being called hilarious, but not nearly as much as I love being called dad."

The Courageous Dads simulcast will broadcast from Nashville, where it was filmed earlier at LifeWay Studios.  For more information on how you can be part of this once in a lifetime event visit www.CourageousDads.com

About Michael Jr.: 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 with Jay Leno, Comedy Central, TV One, The Late, Late Show, BET, Jimmy Kimmel Live, SiTV, and Comedy TV.  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, Thou Shalt Laugh DVD series and to have made his directorial debut with his award winning documentary Comedy: The Road Less Traveled. His current multi-city tour Stand-Up and Give is an extension of the purpose of Comedy: The Road Less Traveled. Michael's stand-up comedy special, Laughing On Purpose.
