Michael Paul Cathers (born May 12, 1964), known by his stage name, Geechy Guy, is a stand-up comedian who hails from the U.S. state of Michigan. He is probably best known for his appearances on Star Search, the nationally televised talent competition hosted by Ed McMahon. While on the show, Guy coined the term "joke grenades" to describe jokes that trigger a delayed audience reaction. Guy held the record for the most wins for a comedian (10) beating such comedians as Ray Romano and nine others. He was defeated by Rondell Sheridan.
