Michael Johns began his comedy career long before he realized he could actually be paid for it. Always the class clown, Michael’s antics (read: poor behavior) kept his instructors on their toes and kept him in the principal’s office.
Growing up in the Midwest, Michael had many opportunities to pick up new material. From his typically dysfunctional family to his pickup driving, hillbilly friends — the act practically wrote itself.
After leaving high school, Michael joined the U.S. Army, where he served in several units including the 101st Airborne at Fort Campbell, Ky., and The United Nations Command Honor Guard in Seoul, Korea.
While Michael was performing as a stand-up comedian, he volunteered for a hypnosis show and woke up two hours later with his pants around his ankles and abusing a chair. From that point on, he added his comedic skills to hypnosis to entertain audiences. Michael has performed his comedic hypnosis shows nationally and internationally at places such as Sturgis, cruise ships, casinos, colleges and Las Vegas showrooms.
In 2004, started his comedy hypnosis show at Bourbon Street Hotel & Casino, which was the start of a successful run in Las Vegas that has included shows at the Empire Ballroom, House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort, the Stardust Hotel & Casino, the Tropicana Hotel & Casino and Planet Hollywood Resort.
Michael travels the world as a motivational speaker and entertainer for corporate events, colleges and more. He has a soft spot in his heart for dogs, and spends much of his free time rescuing animals from kill shelters through Bound Angels and Pet Connect Us, including his lovable pal Bongo, a Jack Russell terrier.
Michael has also performed for Princess and Norwegian Cruise Lines and has appeared on NBC and Fox Television.
