Michael Jr
Exceptionally gifted at combining story with thought-provoking life principles, Michael Jr. exhibits what it means to be a comedic thought leader. Using comedy and dynamic storytelling, he brings laughter and encouragement to audiences all over the world as 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. You can find him in Sony Pictures’ feature film War Room, as well as starring roles in Selfie Dad, More Than Fun, and his comedy special “Laughing On Purpose”

Brad Stine
Stine’s style has been described by Newsweek as “conservative ” with a “rat-a-tat delivery” and by The New Yorker as “frantic, conservative, and ADHD with echoes of Robin Williams, Sam Kinison, Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and Alan Keyes.” However, unlike these and a lot of other
comedians, Stine does not use profanity or sexual humor because of his conservative Christian faith. He has been described as “a clean Dennis Leary.” Stine has appeared in a handful of movies, including the films: Welcome to Paradise, Sarah’s Choice, Homeless for the Holidays, Christmas with a
Capital C and Persecuted.

John Branyan
When John Branyan stepped onto a tiny stage in the early 90’s, he thought his interest in comedy was just a phase; he thought he would get the whole thing out of his system.
But, more than 25 years later, he still loves making people laugh with his style of speaking that won’t leave a filthy residue. “People didn’t invent laughter,” John says. “It was given to us by someone who knew we’d enjoy it.” And he never gets tired of sharing that gift with others. “Every show, my goal is to hurt people. Seriously. I want people’s jaws to ache. I want their sides to cramp up. I want them to
experience dizziness from oxygen deprivation. When they are in pain, I’ve done my job.”
