When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried? Herman Melville said, “A good laugh is a mighty good thing, a rather too scarce a good thing.” There isn’t a single person who would say they don’t want to laugh more. In a culture where the price of a laugh is often inappropriate language or content, Christian comedians are on a mission to show that comedy can be safe, fun and enjoyable for the whole family.
And with Christian stand-up comedy on the rise, there are more and more religious comedians to choose from. So, with your kids, on your own, or with all of your friends, check out the clean and Christian comedians on PureFlix.com for your next laugh:
