The Secret to Marriage is Happy Wife, Happy Life
When booking talent for events, planners are oftentimes hard pressed to an entertainer who appeals to the entire audience without offending or embarrassing. Comedians working “blue” are best relegated to comedy stores and not conference lunches. Christian entertainers, while worthwhile and noble in their chosen field of entertainment, may not always be the right fit for a diverse audience in a corporate, agency or far-afield audience. The best fit for these venues is someone who offers a clean, positive message with no vulgarities.
Allen has honed his talent as a funny, upbeat comedian through years on stage and corporate functions, as well as a steady string of television appearances, radio and special engagements. His appropriate delivery leaves event planners without worry that their choice in headlining entertainment will be nothing short of enjoyable and well received. Even when discussing issues pertinent to his marriage, Allen does it with reverence. On menopause: “There are nights I lay in bed and dream about the good old days of PMS. Trust me.” Moreover, he admits that arguments do happen, but are necessary for a successful marriage. “You have to argue in your marriage. If you do not argue in your marriage, it will build up in your brain, and over time it will make you goofy.”
