Hi I'm Michael Wirtz

I'm a Stand-up comedian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stand-up comedian, born in Chicago and I grew up in Central Texas. I am on the road most of the time now and enjoy meeting new people everyday. I love being outdoors and playing with my little boy. I also enjoy cooking, and entertaining guests. For the times that I have to myself, I recently bought a Kindle and just can't put it down! There just isn't enough joy being realized or shared in the world and I want to change that. I try to bring a smile to the faces of everyone I meet, every day. Not always easy, but it wouldn't be fun if it was always easy. So do yourself a favor and smile, ...and make others around you wonder what you are up to!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always lived my life in a way that matches the teachings of the gospel, even before learning about the gospel. When I was introduced to the church not only did the teachings feel right, but the people around me felt right. While investigating I moved to several different wards and all of them were wonderful. The people in the wards were so friendly and open. They had a genuine interest in my life, my studies of the gospel and were so willing to offer any assistance in any way. Again, this was the way that I lived my life and the way that I enjoyed treating others. It was refreshing to find others that lived the same way. Since my baptism, I have received many blessings. I feel closer to the spirit than I ever did before.

How I live my faith

I live my faith like anyone else. I treat others with respect and kindness, wherever I go. I pray and give thanks every chance that I get. I study the scriptures as often as I can and share my experience with the gospel very often. I visit the temple as often as I can.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Michael Wirtz
Mormons live like anyone else. We get together often and enjoy getting to know one another. Our children play together and we help one another whenever needs arise. The Mormon lifestyle is a lot of fun. There are always activities and service projects where we help in the community and give back to our neighbors. Show more Show less
