PRLog - Aug. 2, 2010 - MIAMI -- GARY, Ind. – Actor, stand-up comedian, and political commentator Michael Colyar headlined a special comedy show in Gary, Indiana to benefit the Lester Lowe for Mayor Campaign and to spread an important message about why citizens should get involved in improving local government.

“I really enjoyed working with Mr. Coylar and look forward to bringing him back to Gary,” said Lowe. “I think the audience also got a better since of who I am and why I am running. I think the quote at the end of the show summed it all up perfectly, “’if you do your homework and you love this city then I am your candidate.’”
As former host of “BET Live From LA,” his point blank delivery and razor sharp insight connected with 55 million viewers from coast to coast. Colyar gained notable attention in 1990 when he was the $100,000 Grand Prize Comedy Champion of “Star Search,” the nationally televised talent competition. Colyar recently starred in “The Long Shot” with Ice Cube and Keke Palmer, and voiced the character Buford in the Walt Disney animated film “The Princess & The Frog.” In the near future, Colyar will be in the comedy concert “LIVE In Africa,” featuring DL Hughley, Wayne Brady and Kim Whitley.
Promising to “build a bridge to Gary’s bright future,” prominent businessman and community activist Lester Lowe’s mayoral campaign platform encompasses several pertinent issues facing the city of Gary such as Economic Development, Job Training Programs, Environmental Protection, Green Technology, Ethics in Government, Community Health Care, and Youth Programs and Education.
