Gear up for some laughs: two-time Emmy nominee Michael Yo is coming home to Texas, and his trip includes a two-night stint in Austin!

Michael is a Houston native, but credits Austin as the city that launched his career. He got his start in town at 96.7 – now KISSFM – but what in ’98-’04 was called KHFI. There was another Michael worked at the station, so Yo went by the name “Johnny Blaze!” He’s looking forward to having some great barbecue once he arrives, and he encourages suggestions in his Instagram DMs: @MichaelYo.

Michael will be performing at Vulcan Gas Company on Friday, August 12th and Saturday, August 13th: he has early (7:30 p.m.) and late (10 p.m.) show availability both days. Book tickets now at or on Michael’s website,
