KANSAS CITY, MO – JUNE 7, 2021 – Nominated “Funniest Comedian” for Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and 1st place winner of The Hollywood Improv’s “Funniest Comic in LA”, Comedian Michael Joiner has been making audiences laugh for more than two decades.
In his 25 years as a Comedian, Joiner has headlined some of the biggest “A” comedy clubs in the nation, such as LA”s “The Ice House” and Kansas City’s “Improv” Comedy Club.
A few years ago, one of the biggest names in stand-up comedy, “Larry The Cable Guy” took notice of Michael and signed him to his record label.
“It was a dream come true,” say’s Joiner.
Joiner’s first comedy album on his new label is called “Shut Up and Laugh” and was distributed recently by the world’s biggest comedy record label, Emmy award winning “Comedy Dynamics.”
“These are the same guys that distribute Dave Chapelle, Jim Gaffigan and so many other big names. I couldn’t believe they added me to their roster, ” says Joiner.
But they did. And Joiner’s comedy album and recognition has since grown in leaps and bounds.
Joiner was one of the first to perform on the now extremely popular “Dry Bar” Comedy Special out of Utah whos’ combined views have reached the billions since 2018.
Michael’s high-energy, laugh-a-minute, sarcastic style is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. With a combination of one liners, smart aleck observations about people, including himself, and lightning-fast improv’s and audience interaction, Michael Joiner puts on a show you will not soon forget.
Joiner, who studied film acting in Los Angeles under the direction of some of LA’s most notorious “A-list” acting coaches, has also been in high demand as a dramatic actor ever since his break-out starring role in Sony Picture’s “The Grace Card” (www.thegracecardmovie.com).
That film warranted Joiner the distinction of being the only actor in history to receive rave reviews in both the Hollywood Reporter and Variety for a faith-based film.
Thanks in large part to Joiner’s performance, “The Grace Card” went on to make over twenty-five times what it cost to produce.
“When the covid crap hit” he says, dryly “My comedy shows as well as acting opportunities all but disappeared.
Since the country has started opening back up, however, he is finding himself more and more on the road doing what he loves.
We just finished shooting a movie in North Carolina”, says Joiner, “and my agent is once again getting calls for comedy shows.”
Saturday, June 19th, 2021, Joiner will be bringing his sarcastic style of clean comedy to
The Lake of the Ozarks, MO. For a “One Night Only” Comedy show at the Regalia Hotel and conference center.
Showtime begins at 8pm with opening act John Loss.
