You can get a taste tonight at Michael and Michael Have Issues Live, where the two Michaels will bring their distinctive brand of humor directly to the masses. And dont worry: Even if youve memorized every episode of the show, youll be treated to new material. Well be doing some stuff together, but were mostly just doing standup, Showalter explains. [The show and our standup] are totally different beasts, entirely. Standup is a totally in-the-moment, live experience. TV is a really slow, involved process. With standup, you just need a microphone. If you have a really loud voice, you dont even need a microphone.
