Michael Jr. – TRANSCRIPT

Thanks, man. I’m excited about being here.

We’re going to have some fun. My name is Michael Jr. I’m going to do some jokes. Yet, at the same time, I’d like to explain to you how life well, how comedy works. So let’s stop right here.

I actually like the city of Reno a lot. I was here once. I was here once; I was keynote speaking for a corporation and something really kind of strange happened when I was here.

Normally, I’m the type of person I like to be on a stage alone. I don’t need any help or anybody. So this CEO of this large company introduces me, and he has the microphone, and normally, we have two different mics, and he leaves, and then, I’m there.

That’s the plan. Dude stays there. I’m standing right next to him with no mic. And then he looks at the audience, and I’m standing there, and he says First, let me explain this. I’m the type of comedian, like, I’m observational; I pay attention to things like college students. Take someone who goes to a nice school like the University of Southern California.

Ask them what school they go to, you get a nice quick answer, “What school you go to?” — “USC” New York University – you get a nice quick answer, – “What school you go to?” – “NYU”. Ask somebody who goes to community college. You get a much longer response, don’t you? “What school you go to?” “Well, see, right now, what I’m doing, I’m going to get a couple credits, right? Then my financial aid is supposed to come through. Then I’m going to transfer, man. They say school kills creativity anyway. Man, I feel vulnerable. Is Brené Brown around? Man, I feel very vulnerable right now.”
