Comedy Dynamics and Git-R-Done Records has recently signed Comedian Michael Joiner to an album label and distribution deal. Joiner will be taping his first album with the team of Git-R-Done & Comedy Dynamics this October 27th before a live audience at the Omaha Funny Bone Comedy Club. Larry The Cable Guy will host the 5pm and 7:30pm comedy shows. The finished album, entitled “SHUT-UP & LAUGH”, will be released for airplay on Spotify, SiriusXM, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music and more. Michael plans to perform 90% never before released material.
Joiner, known as “America’s Favorite Smart Aleck!”, has been performing his clean style of observational sarcasm for over 25 years. He was a contributing writer for the Tonight Show and won the Hollywood Improv’s “Funniest Comic in LA” in 2008. He moved his family to LA in the mid 2000’s to more seriously study acting and has since then starred in over a dozen feature films.
“Larry (The Cable Guy) reached out to me almost a year ago and told me he and his team had been watching me and were very impressed,” says Joiner. “I almost thought one of my impressionist friends was trying to ‘prank’ me.”
Since then he and Larry (whose real name is Dan Whitten) have hit it off pretty good and talk on the phone now and then. “It was great to see my comedy idol was such a regular down to earth guy… I’m hoping this leads to a chance to share some stage time with him,” says Joiner.
Joiner says he is also ecstatic to be working with Emmy-award winning “Comedy Dynamics.”
