Recommendation: Buy It!

Clean Comedians; oxymoron or possibility? With Apostles of Comedy it is reality. I put the DVD in with all the skepticism the genre of “Clean Comedy” deserves, but very quickly I realized these guys are good! The Apostles are: Jeff Allen, Brad Stine, Anthony Griffith, and Ron Pearson. They are funny stand-up comics who happen to be Christians.I was moved by the fact that these “funny guys” are also normal. They deal with the same life issues that we deal with: i.e., depression, bad attitudes, family issues. I especially enjoyed  Griffith’s deadpan delivery on situations like being shot at in a drive-by. But that is outdone by Allen’s facial expressions as he deals with things that go bump in the night… with a broken shotgun. The thing that is different about these four is that they are vulnerable enough to share their stories, albeit in a funny way, with huge audiences.

I highly recommend The Apostles of Comedy.

Patrick was born in Hollywood...literally! Hollywood Community Hospital in 1970. I met Jesus and my wife, Linda, in 1989. Two relationships that I treasure to this day. We have two sons, Joshua and Jason, and a little dog named Sophie. We love Jesus together, enjoy living on the Central Coast of California and hanging with our boys and dog at the beach or a park. As far as Hollywood Jesus it's a privilege to write with real writers...since I'm not. I hope you like my reviews, which are more commentary on everything that MovesMe. I always assume you've seen the movie or TV show that I'm commenting on...so be fair warned; I'm a spoiler.
