17 Christian Ways to Say No – A video by John Crist



"Let me pray about it" and other ways to say no while sounding way more spiritual than you really are!
Who is John Crist?
Named by ChurchLeaders.com as one of the “Top Five Comics to Watch,” Crist is no stranger to accolades. He was a finalist in Comedy Central’s Up Next Comedy Competition, a finalist in the Comedy Works New Faces Contest, and named to the Burbank Comedy Festival’s Best of the Fest. “The most meaningful award I’ve ever won?” Crist says, “When I was first starting out, I’d just go anywhere I could find an open mic. One time I did a show at a bar and the winner won a free appetizer. Best cheese sticks I’ve ever had.”

When asked where he finds the inspiration to write jokes, Crist says, “Shoot, I grew up in Georgia. My dad is a pastor, and I was the third of eight homeschooled children. Coming from a background like that, how do you NOT write jokes?!”

“Write what you know” is the best piece of advice Crist ever received on standup comedy and the reason why the majority of his jokes are on the topic of Christian subculture.

John currently lives in Los Angeles with his zero cats and is a member of Churchome.
