‘A-Train’ presents ‘Michael Jr’ for a family night of comedy in JAX

For one night only, the entire family can enjoy an evening of clean, humorous comedy.  Michael Jr. offers an amazing family-friendly show.  He has appeared on The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, Oprah, The Late Late Show, and at Christian venues such as: Catalyst Conference, Gateway Church and the Willow Creek Leadership Summit.  Michael Jr. will share his unadulterated wit at the Florida Theatre.

Michael’s entry into comedy was almost preordained.  Years ago, in a crowded Grand Rapids, Michigan movie theater; the projector malfunctioned.  The film snapped, the house lights came on, and acting on a dare, young Michael jumped in front of the restless crowd and took center stage.  When the theater manager tried to usher him out, the audience demanded he stay… and Michael Jr. discovered his gift.  He’s a man comfortable on any stage with material clean enough to work in churches, funny enough to work in clubs.

Jacksonville’s own, Comedian A-Train is your feature comic for the night.  He has entertained hundreds of thousands across the country since also starting his career on a dare.  His homegrown brand of comedy offers something for everyone.  As an emcee and corporate host/facilitator, his client list is extensive.  Cigna Global, United Way, WhiteWave and The City of Jacksonville are among a few of his satisfied clientele.  He is the first and only comedian in the city’s 38-year history to host the Jacksonville Jazz Festival in Jacksonville, Florida, the second largest jazz festival in the country and voted in the Top 20 Best.  He also just signed on as a partner bringing his exciting and entertaining comedy series to The Ritz Theatre and Museum.  He has performed with some of the biggest names in comedy. He’s a hit at churches, colleges, concerts and festivals.  His always clean, hilarious, and energetic set makes A-Train a perfect fit for every audience.

Danny Johnson, hosts this great night of laughs.  Often called a cross between Jackie Gleason and Jerry Seinfeld; he has entertained audiences at comedy clubs, corporate events, and churches nationwide.  Danny is an award winning comedian, author, actor, and voice-over artist who has performed for Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, was a Florida’s Funniest Comedian semi-finalist, and winner of a Carnival Cruise Line Comedy Challenge.  His relatable, entertaining, standup has also garnered him opportunities to share the stage with many of the greats.  Get the family, your neighbors and your church groups ready to have some fun.
Another Jacksonville native and funny guy,
