National Youth Event, July 10-13, 2012, Purdue University
MICHAEL ONLY – FAITH, FIT & FUN EXTRAVAGANZA

Friday, July 13 – Imagine One Church/Imagine a Healthy World

Imagine laughter for the soul.

Michael Only jumped heads first into comedy, fully embracing his calling to bring joy into the lives of others. Also known as The Nubian Chief of Comedy and The One and Only; the Chicago native opened for award-winning Comedians, Allen Edge and Jonathan Slocumb.

Michael brings non-stop energy and clean fun to award ceremonies, faith-based events, national conferences and private functions.

Only’s comedic palette is diverse, engaging interfaith, intercultural, ecumenical and intergenerational audiences. He was a featured artist for the Living Legends Gala celebrating the justice and human rights advocacy and ministry of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, Father Michael Pfleger and UCC’s own Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. He was also a featured artist at UCC's Otis Moss III, pastoral installation.

A kid at heart; Only fit right in at the Youth at General Synod program during General Synod 28, Tampa, FL as host for its Diversity Café. A man of God, husband, active UCCer, and sought after comedian; Only is ready to help us imagine a healthy world at National Youth Event this summer through prayers and puns.

Only has performed across the United States and is emerging as one of the hottest new clean comedians to hit the scene with quick wit and great timing.  He shares his holiday, childhood and church experiences with the audiences in a way that keeps them coming back for more. 

Michael Only will headline NYE's Faith, Fit and Fun Extravaganza, Friday, July 13.

Imagine gut glee giggles (not the musical TV show) at NYE 2012.
