That narrows down the list of potential acts, but “clean” comedians do exist. In fact, there’s a hysterical up-and-coming jokester named Daren Streblow of the Christian comedy group “Thou Shalt Laugh.” His humorous observations about family, fatherhood, and the foibles of modern life will tickle your humerus.
What makes Daren Streblow funny?
Daren Streblow ruminates on the challenges of being a Christian in today’s society. Noting how quickly everyone takes his God’s name in vain, he wonders why people never seem to shout, “Oh, Buddha!” when minor misfortune befalls them.
Daren Streblow, Christian comic, delivers family-friendly fare that leaves audiences roaring with laughter. Streblow’s clean and relatable comedy stands up just as well in nightclubs as it does in church halls. Versatile, approachable and infectiously funny, Daren Streblow will dazzle any audience with his infectious wit. Drawing inspiration from classic entertainers such as Ken Davis, Fred Rogers and Bill Cosby, Streblow continues in their footsteps with comedy that will inspire the kind of laughter that brings families and communities closer together.
Daren Streblow is a comedian who does not need to add bathroom humor or sexual innuendoes to get the crowd with him and to laugh. He does not have to censor his humor, which plays well to all ages from children and teens to adults. Streblow turns ordinary occurrences into something to which the audience identifies as he reveals the humor in the mundane experiences of everyday life.
In the comedy bit “Daren Streblow Learns Spanish,” Streblow takes the seemingly ordinary experience of learning Spanish in high school and helps the audience view taking Spanish in class in a whole new and humorous light. He points out that he took Spanish in his Minnesota high school, a requirement of course because Minnesota is so close to…what?…Canada.
While Streblow has been a natural entertainer since childhood and a fan of “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood,” he did not consider a career as an artist until he watched his family and their friends enjoy a Bill Cosby’s “Himself” stand-up comedy video. It started him on a career that has given audiences around the country a world of entertainment.
If one word can describe Daren Streblow, it is “quirky.” His onstage presence is remarkably reminiscent of Jeff Goldblum–his humor requires you to listen and be patient, but his easy and conversational tone allows his jokes to flow naturally.
He also has adept at gallows humor: there’s one joke about how his wife sent him to rent a movie that they both enjoy. He picked Alien of all things (!), and instead found Your First Trimester of Pregnancy inside, and he wondered if a pregnant woman rented Trimester only to find Alien inside! The mothers in the audience laughed heartily, and the fathers laughed somewhat nervously.
A lesser comedian would have beaten the joke into the ground (and into familiar territory), but Daren just lays down the punchline and moves on. He is a lot better when the material is a little more drawn out, a bit longer, and he can “tease” us by ramping it up a little at a time until he reaches the end.
Most importantly, though, Daren’s jokes take on a wide variety of subjects. True, there are the basic categories of family and the various stages of his life, but each of them has a broader range of material (friends, children, observations, etc.)
So, if you want a guy who can get good PG-rated laughs, look no further than Daren Streblow. We can help you with Really Funny Clean Comedians and help you hire the right speaker.
