Funny How Life Works

Funny How Life Works
By Michael Jr.

Funny How Life Works is a behind-the-scenes look at the life and career of comedian Michael Jr. Infused with the same laugh-out-loud humor and practical wisdom that define his stand-up acts, Michael shares a collection of stories meant to inspire readers to embrace their purpose–their “punchline.”

Michael Jr. proposes that life is more similar to comedy than we know. Rather than assuming that our days are random and obstacles are unfortunate, Michael Jr. encourages readers to strategically embrace each life event as part of a setup, leading to their punchline.

This unique look at life is demonstrated by stories from Michael’s own personal and professional life. From unruly hecklers to an unexpected Tonight Show audition, Funny How Life Works is filled with humor and seasoned with wisdom. It is more than a memoir–it’s a source of inspiration.

About the Author

Known as one of today’s most gifted communicators, Michael Jr brings laughter and encouragement to audiences all over the world. Using comedy and dynamic storytelling, he inspires audiences to discover and activate their purpose. This unique skill set has landed him on stages like The Tonight Show on NBC, Tedx Talks, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. His mission to make laughter commonplace in uncommon places means that he also seeks opportunities to share his gifts with those in homeless shelters and prisons. You can find him in Sony Pictures’ feature film War Room, as well as starring roles in Selfie Dad, Laughing On Purpose and More Than Funny.

In each chapter, Michael Jr shares a bit of his past experience. It’s clear that his heart really went into writing this book. The lessons he’s learned along the way he shares with the reader. This book is inspirational and makes you think that not all bad that happens in your life is the end all. It could be we’re learning something through the struggle. And when we make it out, the reward is that much sweeter. Of course, he also sprinkles in his usual humor, which is fun. I wasn’t surprised. I’ve never had the opportunity to see him live in person, only online. But I’ve seen his stand up routines and I knew I had to be part of this. He’s not only funny, but his stand up becomes so much more. I had the honor to be part of Michael Jr’s book launch. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. My honest opinions within this review are my own. If you want to be inspired to do better for yourself as well as others, grab a copy.
