More than funny | Michael Jr. | TEDxUniversityofNevada

Translator: Dan Meyer
Reviewer: Denise RQ 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. (Laughter) (Applause) 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… (Applause) 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. (Laughter) I’m standing right next to him
with no mic. (Laughter) 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? (Laughter) “What school you go to?” “Well, see, right now, what I’m doing,
I’m gonna get a couple credits, right? Then my financial aid
is supposed to come through. Then I’m gonna transfer, man. They say school kills creativity anyway. Man, I feel vulnerable.
Is Brené Brown around? Man, I feel very vulnerable right now.” (Laughter) Let me tell you a little more about me. I love being a dad. And I have five kids, yeah. And I travel a lot so I can see them all. (Laughter) Ha, ha! I’m just playing.
I don’t see them, I don’t see them. (Laughter) No, I do. I have five kids.
They’re all with me. I live in Dallas now. My kids are awesome. The thing about having a big family is you always have
to figure out ways to save money. We wanted to get
our family pictures taken, and that stuff was expensive. So what we did to save money was
we all got in the front seat of the car, looked both ways, and ran a red light. That’s what we did.
That’s what we did. (Laughter) Two weeks later,
the picture came in the mail. (Laughter) But my son blinked so we had to do it again,
we had to do it again. This stuff is crazy. (Laughter) I was doing that joke in prison recently. I wasn’t in prison,
like, “Hey, I’m funny. Get off me!” It wasn’t like that. (Laughter) Whenever we’re doing a big live event
– like we’re doing one tonight in Reno – whenever we do a large ticketed event,
a concert, in a city, we always look for a homeless shelter,
a prison, an abused children’s facility to go to during the day to do comedy. So I’m so I’m doing a prison this time… (Applause) It’s a TEDx talk,
I don’t got that much time. You don’t got to clap, it’s OK. (Laughter) So we’re doing this prison,
and I do the joke about the red light, and 75% of the prisoners laughed; the rest of them… nothing. Then I realized what was going on. Some of them had been locked up so long, the dude next to them
had to explain the joke. He was like, “See, nowadays,
when you run a red light, they send a picture
with the ticket in the mail.” Then he looked at the dude next to him, “A red light is what they use for traffic
when you go down the road.” (Laughter) And then he said,
“A road is what they use…” (Laughter) Wow! Where am I at right now, man? So I’d like to explain to you
how comedy works. This is how comedy works;
really all comedy. Any time you laugh, this formula
is taking place in one way or another, but specifically, with regards
to stand-up, this is how it works as well. First, there’s a setup,
and then, there’s a punchline. Let me explain. The setup is when a comedian
will use his talents and resources to seize any opportunity to ensure that you, the audience,
are moving in the same direction. The punchline occurs
when he changes that direction in a way you’re not expecting. When you catch on to this change,
you’ve received the punchline. The results are revelation, fulfillment,
and joy expressed through laughter. (Laughter) Let me give you an example. A few summers ago, I took my family
on vacation to Mexico. The first two days were rough because the people there
kept calling me a “Negro.” The third day, I realized
they were saying “amigo,” and it was all cool; that was cool, so… (Laughter) Did you see what just happened
right there? (Laughter) So when I was a child, I used
to struggle with my reading. I used to really have a hard time reading. I don’t know, I just struggled with it. I read now just fine; like the signs over the door
that say ‘exite, ‘ I can read that stuff. (Laughter) But when I was a kid,
I used to struggle with my reading. I couldn’t sound a word out
phonetically, it just didn’t work. So now, looking back at it, I realize
I developed seven different ways to look at a word
to determine what the word was. And I just started noticing this
really in junior high. So I would look at the font size,
the color, the positioning, what’s in front of it, what’s behind it,
how people responded to it. I got really good at
looking at words differently to the point in high school,
people didn’t know I wasn’t really reading I was just working it out
really, really fast. Now as an adult, I read just fine, but I still have this ability to look
at words, and people, and situations seven different ways almost immediately. In fact, it’s the primary place
where I pull my comedy from. So that very thing from my past
that looked like it was a setback, looked like it was some sort of handicap, turns out I’m actually able to use it
for what I’m called to do now. So just like you, you’ve probably
had some sort of setbacks, but if you, in a way, would embrace it, you’ll probably find there’s
more opportunities out there. Now I find comedy all over the place. At the airport today: little white kid walked up to me,
asked for an autograph. I was like, “Hey buddy, what’s your name?”
He said, “I’m Tanner.” I looked at him, I said, “No, you’re not.” (Laughter) His mom was cracking up. He was like, “I am Tanner!” (Laughter) “No. Trust me. You’re not.” (Laughter) Or I’ll notice stuff; I saw this dude
with a muscle shirt on. You ever see a dude
with a muscle shirt, like a white tank, but he ain’t got no muscles? (Laughter) What is that? A wife threatener? (Laughter) Depending on
where you’re from in the country, you’ll understand that joke better. (Laughter) And his friend had on a shirt that said, “If you don’t speak English,
leave the country.” Hmm… but it was written
in English. So… (Laughter) So I walked up to him,
and I said, “You’re dumb!” (Laughter) But I said it in Spanish though
so he wouldn’t know… (Laughter) So I’m able to find comedy
in a bunch of different places as a result of embracing what seemed
like it was a handicap from my past. I notice even what people say sometimes. Have you ever heard the phrase, “Boy, I wish I could’ve been
a fly on the wall”? Every time I hear that,
I walk up to the person, and I say, “And then what?” (Laughter) No, no, no, no. You want to be a fly on the wall so you could hear the information
that was in the room. Well, I’ve done the research. Hmm… Flies don’t have ears. (Laughter) Yeah. You would be just as ignorant
as you currently are (Laughter) but you would be a fly. (Laughter) Nobody even listens to a fly. (Laughter) I mean, let’s say you’re
a fly that could read lips. What are you going to do
with the information? (Laughter) And you’ve got two days to live. (Laughter) You’re making bad choices. (Laughter) Or people will say stuff to me like, “Michael Jr., where you from originally?” I’m like, “Originally? Huh.
Well, I was conceived in Michigan.” (Laughter) “Before that, I was in my dad.” (Laughter) Yeah. (Laughter) “And then, there was
a swim competition,” right? (Laughter) “And I won, which is crazy” (Laughter) “because currently, I don’t swim at all.” (Laughter) I used to be pretty good
though, apparently. (Laughter) I am not politically correct. I’m just going to tell: I know
I do comedy, but it’s just too much work. I’m just telling you. You have to watch the news
and know the language. If you put the right stuff in your heart,
the right stuff will come out. So I never tried,
I never try to be politically correct. Some people work hard. I’m at a coffee shop; a white guy
in front of me orders a coffee. The lady in front of him
is like, “How do you want it?” He looked back at me and was like,
“Um, African-American please.” (Laughter) I was like, “Cool.
Let me get the Caucasian Mocha. Let me get that if I could… just get the Caucasian Mocha, I guess. I’m trying to learn, I’m trying to learn.” (Laughter) Coaches would say some stuff too. Ever hear your coach say something like, “The stuff I’m teaching here,
it’s not just about this game, You could apply it to life.” Here’s the thing, people:
that’s not true. I thought it was true. Straight out of high school, one of my first jobs was…
I used to park cars. One of the cars was really nice
so I took it for a little spin. The company found out,
and my boss lost the account. He was yelling at me and screaming I didn’t know what to say or do. I thought back
to my high school football coach. I looked at my boss, and I was like,
“You know what, man? You win some, you lose some, man.” (Laughter) “You can’t let this one loss
get you down.” (Laughter) “The important thing is
I went out there, and I had fun.” (Laughter) (Applause) Then I got fired, man.
I got fired right away. (Laughter) Actually, I do play some basketball. I didn’t want to perpetuate
stereotypes, but it’s true. (Laughter) But in basketball,
you’re supposed to run and jump. I don’t really feel like
doing both all the time. So some friends recently
took me ball hunting. Some people call it golf or whatever. (Laughter) I shot a 121. That’s what I shot, a 121; and then we had lunch. And it was like, “Hey. We’re gonna do
the other nine holes now.” (Laughter) I said, “I’m not going back
out there, I’m not going.” Because they lied to get me to go. They’re like, “The greens are awesome.” I was like, “Cool,”
I showed up with some cornbread. I was like, “All right …” (Laughter) I don’t know how to say
cornbread in German. I’m sorry. I just did that just for Germany. I’ve never really been there before. I do think working out is important. I was at the gym the other month. I was going to do some cardio, right? But they moved it upstairs. I ain’t going up there, man, please. (Laughter) And I get recognized at the gym.
I got recognized. I’m working out,
this lady was like: (Gasping). I said, “How you doing?” She said, “You don’t understand
Michael Jr.! You’re my favorite comedian. Every time I see you,
I laugh my butt off.” I was like, “Uh… Keep laughing!” Keep laughing.” (Laughter) So there’s a club in Los Angeles. When I moved to Los Angeles,
and I was brand new in comedy, there’s a club there that it’s
like the best club in the country. It’s called the “Comedy and Magic Club.”
It’s in Hermosa Beach. This club is extremely hard
for a comedian to get into. The way I got into this club is a guy named George Wallace
saw me when I lived in New York. He knew I was funny and clean so when I moved to Los Angeles,
he took me to the Comedy and Magic Club. Now he couldn’t get me on stage,
it’s way too prestigious of a club. They have to know who you are. So he got me into the green room. I’m in the green room
and suddenly, brand new in town, and I find myself in a green room
with some soldiers in comedy. There’s George Wallace,
Garry Shandling, Jay Leno. I’m brand new in town. And at the time, a football player
got hit in the eye with a flag, and he lost his vision in one eye, and he was suing the league
for 400 million dollars. Now, all of these guys are helping
Leno on that joke subject for the monologue
for “The Tonight Show” on NBC. I ain’t saying nothing. I’m just happy to be in the room
sharing french fries with these dudes. But your gift will make room for you. So then, they got quiet,
and they all looked at me, and I’m thinking, “Oh, snap! This is an opportunity.” I said, “Let’s see if I got this right. He got hit in the eye with a flag,
he lost his vision in one eye, and he’s suing the league
for 400 million dollars. He’s not gonna see half of it.” (Laughter) Like, for real. (Laughter) So here’s the thing: how did I get that joke that fast
under that much pressure? The truth is it wasn’t
as much pressure as you might think because I’d been practicing
since I was a child in the form of a kid
who was having a hard time reading. I was practicing just like
you’ve been practicing; you just didn’t know you were practicing. I’m here to let you know
you’ve been practicing. And for a lot of you, guys,
it’s game time. It’s game time. So now, I’m in the club;
and I’m performing there. This is probably
like seven, eight years ago. I’m headlining at the club, and right before I got on stage, I had a change in mindset about comedy. Most of the time
when a comedian gets onstage, he wants to get laughs from people. And I felt a shift take place: Instead of going up there
to get laughs from people, I felt like I was supposed
to give them an opportunity to laugh. I did a little prayer,
and I clearly felt like I was supposed to give
an opportunity to laugh. This changed everything. Because now I’m not looking to take; I’m simply looking for
an opportunity to give. This is why we go to homeless shelters
and these places. In fact, that very night
when I leave the stage, I’m outside, people want autographs, we’re hanging out taking pictures, and I look across the street,
and I saw a homeless guy. I had never seen a homeless guy
outside this club before ever. But that doesn’t mean
he wasn’t there before. That just means before,
my mindset was to get laughs from people, so why would I even notice him? But now I changed my mindset,
and I see this homeless guy, and I have the thought, “What about him? How could I give him
an opportunity to laugh?” And that’s when we started doing
homeless shelters and prisons and making laughter commonplace
in non-common places. So now, as a result of doing that, we went to this one place,
we went to Montrose, Colorado. It’s an abuse facility for children
who were being abused by their parents. And I’m hearing all these stories, and this grandmother told us
about her grandson who was so afraid of his mom
who’s on drugs and been abusing him. One of the things she’s been doing
is she was pulling out his toenails. So I hear this story, and they bring all these kids inside. And Spiderman is sitting right up. This little boy is so afraid of his mom, everywhere he goes,
he wears a Spiderman costume. He’s sitting right up front at the show. If my mindset was still
to get laughs from people, there’s no way I would’ve been able
to do the show. But my mindset changed; so now, I have to do the show. So I get up on stage, and people start laughing
slowly but surely. Twenty minutes in it,
I hear a voice come from right here, and the voice says, “My name is Ronan.” And this little boy pulls off his mask, introduces himself to me. And I can’t even tell you
what it meant to me. He started talking to me
for like nine minutes, like I wasn’t doing
a comedy show at the time. (Laughter) But it was all because I made this shift. I made this change, and I say it simply. Instead of trying to get, I’m going to see if there’s
an opportunity to give. If you can make this adjustment, it will change your life for the good. If you’re a mechanic, you may think
you get paid to fix vehicles. But if you can make this shift, you will recognize you help people
reach their desired destination. That will put your alarm clock
out of business. My senses are there’s a lot of people out there
still hitting the snooze button. Before I bounce – bounce means to vacate the premises – (Laughter) I’d like to explain to you how life works, at least from a comedian’s perspective. First, there’s a setup, and then there’s a punchline. Your setup is your talents,
your resources, and your opportunities. And most of the time, we use our setup to ensure that the people around us
are moving in a direction that serves us. Which means the punchline occurs when you change that direction
in a way they’re not expecting. You actually use your setup
for other people. The results are the same, yet multiply:
revelation, fulfillment, and joy. But it’s not just for the one
receiving your punch line; it is absolutely for you
as you deliver the punch line. In fact, if I ask the question
to everyone here, everyone watching, if I ask you this question, “How many people here
know what your setup is?” Every one of you would be able to tell me. Because your setup is the fact
that you have a house, a car, you’ve been married, you went to school. Your setup is about what you’ve received. But what if I asked the question,
“What is your punchline?” Because your punchline is about
what you’re called to deliver. And if you only know your setup
and not your punchline, you’ll make the mistake
of trying to add more setup. “If I could just get another degree,” “if I could just get married,” “if I could just lose weight,” but what you really need
is to know your punchline. Because to know your setup
and not your punchline is an uncomfortable place to live. Let me give you an example. How many people are still thinking about
the story of me and the CEO on stage? The reason all you guys are
still thinking about that story is because all you have is the setup; you don’t have the punchline. Yet, we’ve moved on and allowed ourselves to be entertained like there wasn’t something missing. So we’ll go to a comedy show,
or a football game, or a concert even though there’s something missing. And that’s just the story
I told you ten minutes ago. What about your story? You’ve been living it your entire life,
and if all you know is the setup, and not the punchline, you’re living in an uncomfortable place. And please be clear. Just like when I had
a hard time reading as a child, your setbacks are part of your setup so you can deliver the punchline
you’re called to deliver. Much like a slingshot,
the further you’ve been set back, the further you’re going to reach. But what are you going to aim for? Everyone has a setup, and everyone has a punchline. You need to find your punchline and deliver it. I’m Michael Jr. I love you. (Applause) Thank you guys. Aw, you guys are awesome. Standing ovation! Thank you so much. Thank you, thank you! (Applause) Get up, dude! You too! I’m just playing. Thank you. (Applause)

    Brilliant, thank you.

  48. Peter B says:

    I needed this speach

  49. Reason1717 says:

    He sounds sincere and heart felt and I responded to this. However, there was a subtle undertone of Religion, ("Calling" he termed it). Not that religion is wrong, only that "faith" has little to do with reality. And if your off on reality you go a stray at some point. Again I he came across as a well meaning fellow. But when a man things "we have a purpose", he does not understand that each person chooses his/hers meaning. We as people pick what has meaning and how much meaning things have. We humans are meaning makers. Not a calling or a God or Gods giving us "a plan."
    Other than that I like this man and his message. No malice here by the way.

  50. Andrei Silviu Canghizer says:

    I got up in front of the PC also ! Great JOB @Michael Jr.

  51. Silverhand290 says:

    If I was there, at exactly 15 minutes I would have had to stand up and say (and I am really loud, I don"t need a microphone even during a riot) "You sir, are a fine example of a human being" even though I know all my friends would have been thinking "Oh no, he"s doing it again. Now everyone is looking over here" and I wouldn"t have given a sh*t as usual. Some things just need saying. Apparently many do not agree.

  59. FIDIRONU says:

    Far too many "Ums".
    Didn't move around the stage to engage different parts of the audience.
    I'm surprised that he's a professional comedian. His stage presence is pretty awful.

    Weird. Once he got off the comedy and into the serious stuff, all those silly grunts disappeared!
