“90% Comedy. The other half is magic.”

Once described as “the Zach Galifianakis of magic,” Michael’s greatest asset is the ability to combine comedy and sleight-of-hand technique to form an evening of pee-in-your-pants entertainment…or so he was told by one little old lady. After seeing his show, renowned stand-up comic Brian Regan said, “I love the part where you harpooned the guy in the chest!”

In 2015, Michael was hand-picked to create the role of the “Magic Maker” in the World Premiere of Stephen Schwartz’s Magic to Do, and can be heard on the Original Cast Album, available on iTunes, Amazon, or Spotify.

Currently, Michael is a highly sought after consultant for Fortune 500 Companies, as he helps connect them with their employees and clients in an astonishing and memorable way. Some of his clients include Workday, Carnival Corporation, CBS, bioMérieux, and UPMC Health Systems. Additionally, Michael performs on cruise ships, at Universities, comedy clubs, and private functions all across the world.

He lives in Pittsburgh, PA with his beautiful wife, Sarah, their perfect daughters, Rosalind and Sloane, and scruffy Double Doodle, Aurora.

Trinity & Friends

Performance: 4:00 PM

Trinity has celebrated over 30 years of music ministry. This Van Wert, Ohio-based trio features vocalists for Gary Adams, Cheryl Burk and Kim Mason. They are honored to be able to minister in song and share what the Lord has done for them as a group and individually.

The group is honored to be part of the Willowood Label and produced by Dove Award-winning song writer John Darin Rowsey. John’s talent for arranging has blessed many in gospel music and his heart for creating great music, while not losing the message of the song, makes him a great producer. John has produced Trinity’s last six recording projects. Trinity was also blessed to have Roger Talley produce the group’s first four projects.

Over the last several years the trio has had the privilege of taking the stage and singing God’s praises with some of the country’s leading gospel artists: The Talleys, The Hoppers, Greater Vision, The Booth Brothers, Mark Lowery, Dallas Holmes, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Guardians, Karen Peck & New river, Triumphant Qt, The Imperials, Tribute Qt., The Pfeifers and many others. God has also blessed them by allowing Trinity to take part in different showcases at the National Quartet Convention, minister on various Gospel Cruises and tour throughout the country. Trinity has also hosted the Gospel Music Expo for the past 21 years.
