Michael Joiner is undoubtedly one of today’s most popular entertainers and comics. Whether it is nationwide sold-out tours, films, hidden camera pranks or Youtube skits, Joiner demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience. Michael comes from a humble background, born in the mean streets of crime-ridden Gary, IN…, the only son of a teen age unwed mother, Michael at one time lived in a two bedroom rundown apartment along with his mom, grandparents, two uncles and an aunt. Eventually Michael’s mom met a man who became his step dad. However he could never seem to hold down a job for very long, and therefore the family moved more than half a dozen times in two years. Until he gave his life to God, Michael experienced many things, including;
- At age seven Michael peeked out his bedroom door to see a man had pulled a gun on both parents.
- At age ten Michael arrived home from a church camp to find that his house had been burned to the ground.
- At age 13 Michael had been chased several times by the leader of a Hells angels type motorcyle club bent on killing Michael for dating his ex girlfriend.
- By the time Michael was 21, he had a gun pulled on him several times.
- At age 28 he had a car full of young punks pull up as he was getting into his vehicle on a dark street late at night..every one of them had crow bars and baseball bats. They were going to beat him for (erroneously) thinking Michael was dating one of the mens girlfriends. As they approached Michael.A man came out of his house with a gun and chased made them leave. Soon after the leader of the group was in an accident and suffered irreparable brain damage. He never chased Michael again.
- In his late twenties and thirties, Michael had turned to drugs, drinking, and partying to try to fill the void that what in his heart.
- In 1988, while in Hollywood, CA. Michael gave his life to God. Since then his life has never been the same.
- All of this and more is included in Michael’s powerful and inspiring story of how God saved him from a drug addicted party animal life to become a loving husband and dad to three boys, as well as one of one of the most “in demand” Christian Comedian and actors in history.
