Comedy Dynamics has announced they will release Michael Joiner’s new stand up comedy special, Shut Up & Laugh, through the Comedy Dynamics network. The album will be released on April 17, 2020 through SiriusXM, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal and more.
In his first CD, Shut Up & Laugh, comedian Michael Joiner proves that comedians don’t have to be dirty to keep their audience in stitches. Without sacrificing his politically incorrect style, Michael connects to the crowd with jokes about age, religion, and being a hillbilly. Combining personal stories with observational humor, Michael demonstrates that a clean comedian can still be rough around the edges.
For the past 25 years, Michael Joiner has been starring in comedies and selling out stand-up comedy shows. Winner of Hollywood Improv’s “Funniest Comic in LA” in 2008 and a 2010 Christian Music Hall of Fame “Comedian of the Year” nominee, Michael continues to stay relevant and connect with audiences around America. A contributing writer for Jay Leno and David Letterman, Michael continually demonstrates his unique ability to stay clean while pushing the boundaries of comedy.
The Chicago Tribune called Michael’s set “Clean cutting edge sarcasm… Ray Romano meets Don Rickles”.
Newly signed to Larry the Cable Guy’s record label, Git-R-Done Records, Michael will return to tour in fall of 2020.
“Like all of the artists that come from the Git-R-Done label, Michael delivers smart, witty comedy that everyone can enjoy,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
