In this article, we will showcase Thor Ramsey, who is a gifted clean comedian. Moreover, who knows, perhaps he will be the entertainer you will hire for your next event.
A Little Bit About Thor’s Background
Thor studied English Literature and Hellenistic Greek at the Texas Christian University. Not only that, but he also studied theology at Westminster Seminary, in California.
He started thinking about being a comedian since high school and shared this thought with one of his friends. His friend even had a dream that he was on The Tonight Show, which made him say:
“Well, if you are not going to follow your dreams, you might as well follow somebody else’s.”
In 1987, he was already working as a stand-up comedian and was traveling the country 42 weeks per year. He was mostly doing shows in comedy clubs and churches. Then, Thor started performing at comedy events, which he is still doing today.
Right now, he is not only mastering clean comedy, but he is also one of the most recognized names in Christian comedy.
Thor is best known for three things:
- Thou Shalt Laugh DVDs (over half a million DVDs were sold, and the comedy movies were seen on cable television nationally);
- Being a Host of Bananas Comedy (a family-friendly comedy series which was purchased by Sony Television);
- The author of Thor Ramsey’s Total Money Meltdown.
He also attended many different festivals, such as:
- Montreal Comedy Festival—”Just For Pitching”;
- Vancouver Comedy Festival—Letterman Showcase;
- Spirit West Coast—Del Mar, Featured Comic;
- Spirit West Coast—Monterey, Featured Comic;
- Lifefest, Appleton, WI;

Did you know that Thor had his television series called Comedy at Large with Thor Ramsey? It aired for one season on the i-Life Network.
Thor Ramsey Is More Than a Comedian
At some point during his career, he realized something. To quote him: “Most comedians are just preachers who have not answered their call.”
He continued to perform at comedy events, while he also helped plant Emmaus Church in Redlands, California. Thor got closer to the church community and was a teaching pastor of the Threshold services at Canyon Lake Community Church for four years.
Now, he is the lead pastor of a brand new church plant in Lake Elsinore, California.
However, Thor did not stop here. He published two books as well:
His career is so diverse and filled with incredible accomplishments. Thor is not one to shy away from appearing on TV, at festivals, conferences, clubs or special events and tours.
He likes a challenge, and he also loves being in front of an audience with the sole purpose of making them laugh.
