Micah Jeub, Standup Comedian

We can visualize Micah as a standup comedian someday. He loves to keep an audience laughing. Watch the video above and let us know what you think. Micah has three things going for him, and I believe they’re going to bring him places.

1. Micah is naturally funny.

Micah keeps the whole family laughing day in and day out. Sometimes he’s annoyingly funny, but we get over the annoying part. He’s the life of most any party.

He wrote the piece above after keeping us rolling about this crazy sled he built a couple years ago. What a funny story. “Micah, you’ve got to write this down!” Which leads to the second things he’s got going for him…

2. Micah used his platform.

It took some discipline on his part to sit down and actually write the speech, but he eventually did. See, this comedy routine is part of a larger 10 minute speech he wrote for competition. In fact, he took 1st place at the National Invitational Tournament of Champions last month.

Micah used the wildcard speech category Original Interpretation as his platform to write his own comedy routine. He was naturally funny, so he applied it to writing this skit. He polished the routine from tournament to tournament. He got better and better, eventually winning the final tournament.

3. Micah wants to continue.

Do you think Micah could perform in front of other audiences? We sure think so. He’s now working on adapting his 10 minute speech into a 30-minute routine. There’s a difference, but he’s relishing the challenge.

Now he just needs some gigs.

A greater feeling? On stage, hearing 2nd place’s name called…and it’s not yours.

Waiting for 1st place to be announced…Micah Jeub!

Dad was fortunate enough to be on stage with Micah.

    He kept me laughing! Of course, I have a 14 yr old boy… but I think my 12 yr old boy would be more likely to try something like that (the sledding, not the speech… neither of them would do the speech. lol). Micah certainly is a natural!

    I’d say Micah is definitely a natural comedian!! Love his vivid descriptions and building up the story right to the end…  your children all are so multi-talented – they never fail to amaze me.  Keep working on new material, Micah, I’m sure you will go far!!

  • Janis Bowles

    This was great. Keep up the great work Micah!

    If he is shy of the audience he could defiantly write the material for some other comedians! Or, write very entertaining books or movies! I can see a bright future ahead!

    Love it! Both my 10 year old son and I were in stitches!

    He seems like a naturally funny kid who enjoys entertaining others. That doesn’t, however, mean he’s qualified for gigs. He needs to develop that talent, through study, observation and practice, before he is qualified to market himself for gigs. He’s got a beginning, but there is still a lot of hard work ahead, as with all of God’s gifts!

    and 4.  with a family like his, there is PLENTY of MATERIAL!!  Love you guys.  Keep up the good work, Micah, and always honor God with your gifting.

    Micah,

    I just watched your comedy video.   You did a great job.  Looked like you had the audience in the palm of your hand.  Your talent will allow you to open many hearts to the good news of God’s love.  Keep up the good work!

    The video was great, but not as great as having seen it in person.  I’d buy tickets for the show!

    Nice job, Micah. I was in stitches at the end, and now I’ve memorized it by heart. 😛
    Keep up the good work, all to God’s glory! 😀
