Michael Jr.’s “More Than Funny” special will play in cinemas via Fathom Events

Michael Jr.’s newest comedy special will be released nationwide in movie theaters as a one-night-only event.

Tickets for the Oct. 18 screenings of “Michael Jr.’s MORE THAN FUNNY” can be purchased online at Fathom Events and participating theater box offices.

“I’m so excited about this comedy special—when we were filming people in the audience were crying from laughter one minute and laughing while crying the next,” said the comedian in a prepared statement. “I think audiences will be surprised at what this event will stir up in them.”

“Fathom is excited to bring Michael Jr.’s wholesome comedy to movie theaters nationwide,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “His versatile, family-friendly act upholds our commitment to offering unique content that joins communities and families together.”

The performance boasts three stories plus interviews, and feature an exclusive introduction and post credit production with never-before-seen comedic segments and hilarious improv moments.

You’re likely to see Michael Jr. in a corporate or church setting as much if not more than you would a comedy club. He also performs in homeless shelters and prisons to share his inspirational stories and message. Here’s a clip from his previous special, Laughing on Purpose, performed in a megachurch.
