Joel Michalak

Joel Michalak is a writer, filmmaker, producer, singer, song-writer, musician, actor, photographer, and occasional painter/multi-media artist whom currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. He is best known for his band Therapy Session, his short films and comedy sketches released under Novelty Friend, and his award winning sitcom pilot about musicians, Falling Flat.
Though Joel works in many mediums and creates everything from emotional folk songs to comedy sketches, his goal for creating art is always to find universal truths and turn painful or uncomfortable subjects into something beautiful that connects us to one another and our humanity.
