Thor Ramsey is a Funny Christian Comedian
Thor Ramsey has dedicated his life to clean humor, and his infectious sense of fun pervades all of his professional projects as a Funny Christian Comedian. He’s performed his winning Christian comedy routines in venues nationwide and in the “Thou Shalt Laugh” DVD series.
Thor hosts “Bananas,” a television show that showcases the world’s finest clean comedians. He’s written two books, including an account of his financial travails called “Thor Ramsey’s Total Money Meltdown.” And he serves as a teaching pastor at Canyon Lake Community Church in Canyon Lake, Calif. His sermons are doubtless as hilarious as they are thought-provoking.
Thor attended Texas Christian University, and he claims that he almost graduated. But comedy was calling, and he decided that he had to get onstage and give it a try. He performed for the first time in 1987 at a Des Moines Ramada Inn. Young Thor did not appear in the hotel’s dining room that night; instead, he performed in the basement. Thus, his career literally had nowhere to go but up. And up it went.
Soon enough, Thor was traveling almost constantly and performing at the most prestigious comedy clubs in the United States. Since 1990, he’s made many television appearances including Bananas Comedy, Thou Shalt Laugh and The Clean Stand Up Comedy Tour. Plus, he’s entertained on the Disney Cruise Lines and at the famous Montreal Comedy Festival. Through it all, he’s maintained his sharp timing, his gently sarcastic style, and his uncanny talent for seeing the absurdities in everyday situations. He has also raised a family: He and his wife Dinika have been married for more than 20 years, and they have two daughters.
Given all that Thor has accomplished so far as a Funny Christian Comedian, you might imagine him as a man who’s in an awful hurry to get things done. But the clip above suggests that the opposite is true. In it, Thor discusses how overly rushed modern life is — from our fast food to our daily conversations. He then makes the case for adopting the leisurely pace and calm demeanor that Jesus always exhibits in the gospels. Indeed, this concept is hugely appealing. After all, shouldn’t life be as relaxed and as enjoyable as a Thor Ramsey performance?
