February 19th, 2021

Fathers will no doubt go the extra mile for their daughters.

Meet Dad-comedian Mike Hanley.

He’s decided to surprise his baby girl at her bat mitzvah.

His journey begins where countless others have tried and failed: the dancefloor.

In this ceremonious occasion, 13-year old Jessica’s celebrating the coming of age tradition known as the bat mitzvah.

But this isn’t your typical bat mitzvah.

Mike takes his daughter’s hand as the song “My Girl” fills the airwaves.

The audience has no choice but to be wooed by the heartfelt moment.

The duo slow dance in their way into our hearts.

But they have a few tricks up their sleeve!

In the blink of an eye, the music changes to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody!”

Jessica sings along while her dad just stands around slowly shaking his head.

But this is just the hilarious start of one most enjoyable father-daughter dances ever!

The duo’s prepared a revolving soundtrack ahead of time.

The dancers begin to rock out to “Mambo No.5” before Soulja Boy’s “Crank That” exits the speakers.

Then, they go retro with a Jackson 5 classic.

“Greased Lightning” obviously makes an appearance.

Daddy Mike, who’s earned his stripes as a professional comedian, dazzles the crowd with his hilarious antics.

His inability to keep up with the music on top of lacking any semblance of dance skills ups the hilarity. And the crowd loves it.

Mike’s website describes him perfectly.

“Mike Hanley’s unique style of high energy, full-tilt comedy has left audiences all over erupting in laughter.”

That seems like an apt description.

If you’re married you will laugh at Mike’s hysterical stories.

If you’re single you’ll want to stay that way for the rest of your life!

From relationships to kids to the daily grind, Mike has a story that will be sure to leave you in stitches.

Taking the time to plan this with his daughter shows how much love and affection Mike has for her.

What a loving father.

Think the dance is over? Think again!

The two start to creep like zombies amid Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” before doing some hand flips to the “Macarena.”

From performing “Kung Fu Fighting” to jamming out with Myley Cyrus on “Party In the USA,” there’s no shortage of entertainment with these two showstoppers.

They cover seemingly everything in a single dance!

This memory will last Jessica’s lifetime. She has an awesome dad!

For all the work that was put in, Mike definitely deserves to be mentioned for Father of the Year!

His passion, ridiculousness, and love inspire us all to treat our children with the absolute care and respect they deserve!

Soon enough, the dance comes to an end amid the apt “My Girl.”
