“Michael’s stories, accumulated throughout his own unusual journey, reveal important truths you and I can absorb and apply to make our lives better, and to improve the lives of everyone around us. And of course, you’ll find yourself laughing out loud as you read.” --John Maxwell 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.
