Video: All-star Comedian Michael Jr.’s Big Change of Heart

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/23/14

The popular comic talks about the most powerful moment in his career.

Popular comedian, Michael Jr., stars in this "I Like Giving" video about using laughter as a way to connect with other people. While he’s had many breaks over the course of his career, Jr. considers the big one to be a change of heart he had one night before getting on stage. He realized he didn’t simply want to get laughs from the audience, but to give them something. He goes on to share a moving story about bringing his comedy to Dolphin House, a place for abused kids, where he experienced another powerful moment of his career. Michael Jr. reminds us that anybody can deliver his own powerful punchline.
