"I was blessed to be a part of it," Michael Jr. said of "Selfie Dad," noting that acting in the role was a powerful creative experience. "They allowed me the freedom to write some of the scenes — to edit some of the scenes live."

As for Michael Jr.'s own walk with God, the comedian believes he has been called to bring laughs, joy and positivity to audiences' lives.
"I'm called to comedically inspire people to walk in purpose," he said. "Comedy is just the vehicle; it's not the destination."
Listen to Michael Jr. tell his story:
Michael Jr. recalled how he first realized he's funny at the tender age of 9, but it wasn't until he was 28 that he realized he had a calling in the comedic arts.
"It went from being a career to understanding that this is ... a calling," he said of his evolution. "It's changed everything. Now, I'm not looking to take; instead, I'm looking for an opportunity to give."
