The Best Comedians on Marriage
Are you looking for high-quality entertainers for a church-sponsored date night? As with any venue, it is important to consider the tastes of the audience, and if the show is in a place of worship, then the performer should keep the material clean and family-friendly. Even the occasional off-color joke can alienate the audience and make the event planners (and even the sponsor) look bad. The task of finding talented Christian comedians who are both appropriate and genuinely funny can seem all but impossible in theory, but there are many tried-and-true performers who excel at keeping it clean. From observational humor and improvisational comedy to relationship-based advice, these comedians and comediennes are ideal candidates for any church sponsored date night, even if the kids are also going to be at the table.
