Top comedian comes to YFC Comedy Café

Michael Joiner is undoubtedly one of today’s most popular entertainers and comics. Whether it is nationwide sold-out comedy tours, films, hidden camera pranks or YouTube skits, the comedian demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience.

A true “comic’s comic,” Joiner, often referred to as “God’s Smart Aleck,” has been performing his own sarcastic style of observational stand-up comedy for over 25 years, becoming one of the best known and respected clean comics working today. His crowd interaction and unequaled ability to improvise with audience members has gained him respect among fans and Comedians alike.

Audiences around the country may recognize Michael from one of his many starring roles in films like Sony Pictures theatrical sleeper hit, “The Grace Card” or the more recent Comedy hit “Heaven Bound,” as well as his scene-stealing roles in movies such as “My Name is Paul,” “Rumors of wars,” “Love Covers All” and most recently “Kudzu Zombies.”  He’s written for dozens of stand-up comedians, as well as “The Tonight Show” and “Politically Incorrect.”   Joiner’s many TV appearances have included “Bananas” & Chonda Pierce’s “Stand up for Family’s” on the Dove Channel.   He was actor Bruce Willis’ full time photo-double for the hit TV show “Moonlighting” and he appeared on many TV shows including “21 Jump St.” and “30 Something.” He was the 1st place winner of the Hollywood Improv’s “Funniest Comic in LA,” and Nashville Christian Music Hall of Fame “Comedian of the Year” nominee 2013.

Now Joiner brings his top-rated show to Topeka for the 2018 Topeka Youth For Christ Comedy Café on Friday night, November 9th, starting at 6:30 p.m., at Fellowship Bible Church, 6800 SW 10th Ave.

The YFC Comedy Café is a perfect blend of food, fellowship, fun, and laughter, with a purpose that inspires people to make a difference with teens.  You can expect a quality event that includes a combination of the following elements:  Time for social interaction over delicious coffee and desserts, a creative program that highlights young people and tells the YFC story, and a hilarious professional comedy act from an internationally known comic.

The Comedy Cafe is a fundraising event that helps fund the ongoing ministries of Topeka Youth For Christ.  There will be a free will offering at the end of the program and an invitation to partner with YFC to touch the lives of teens in the greater Topeka area.

Admission is free, but tickets are required.  The Comedy Cafe is underwritten by individual table sponsors so seating is limited.  For tickets, call the YFC office at 785-232-8296 and leave a message with your contact information and a Comedy Cafe team member will call you back.

People who love to laugh and love helping teens with needs will love this event!  You don’t have to be religious to attend because YFC’s Comedy Cafe does a great job involving people from all walks of life.

YFC’s mission is to reach young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the Word of God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.

Every day at thousands of community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus. We are rural and urban and we are always about the message of Jesus.
