Over the years I’ve looked for times and ways to bring laughter to shelters, prisons, halfway houses…places where hope is in short supply and laughter’s missing. This gave me a true glimpse of the real power of laughter. Most times I paid the way out of my own income. But when family, friends and fans found out about this they wanted to get involved and pay the way for me to take my gift to others. This blew me away.
As a comedian I’ve been bringing laughter to you for years. Proverbs 17:22 says “a merry heart doeth good like a “medicine”…since it’s medicine then let’s take it to the folks who need it the most.
Michael Jr 1722 is the name of our new nonprofit organization created to carry this medicine as we: make laughter commonplace in uncommon places. We are organized and have a plan to do this in multiple ways. And the good news is that you can play a part in getting it done…because when you give you share in the rewards…
Making it true “that everybody is a comedian”—because you will be bringing the laughter.
I thank you for this.
