Julian Michael

Julian Michael is an incredibly likeable guy who says horrible things about everybody. A self-described “token minority,” Julian was on his way to becoming a Baptist minister before he discovered how hilarious and gay he is.

For the last 10 years, Julian has brought unfiltered laughter to audiences of all backgrounds, even though he fits in with none of them. In 2017. Julian signed with Uproar Records, the same label responsible for 12 Richard Pryor albums among other great works and recorded his live comedy album, Insert Token, to a standing ovation at the Comedy Underground in Seattle. It can be heard on Sirius XM (Kevin Hart’s LOL Radio and Raw Dog Comedy) and is available everywhere music is sold.

Julian recently made his big screen debut as a writer and performer in “Out on Stage: The Movie”, a feature film highlighting the diversity and talent within gay comedy. Optioned writer, stereotype buster, recovering acappella singer, Julian lures audiences in with his laid back style, then takes them on an unexpected but always hilarious journey.
