How to become a successful Christian comedian

First I’ll start by telling you that I have and am living the life of a Christian comedian, so I’ll tell you what I’ve done and what I need to do to be successful in what I do. The world of Christian comedy is increasingly flooded with people who want to try to tell funny jokes to a pure Christian audience. The truth is that this is not an easy task because not many people know about the Christian business comedy.

At first glance at the word Christian comedy, many people assume that they will hear about scriptures and church jokes all the time, but I beg to differ. As a Christian comedian, I’ve experienced some things that weren’t as fun as not getting all the work I did when I was a secular comedian. A lot of venues didn’t want to book me because they thought I was going to preach a sermon, but I had to put together a show and put it on DVD so I could watch the show I was going to do.

So, you need to make sure you know which crowd you are trying to attract. My goal was never to attract a crowd that wanted to hear a bunch of ignorant material about sex, drugs and violence because there was so much more to talk about. I will now proceed to inform you about the steps to start a successful career in the Christian comedy business.

Step 1) Know your target audience

-In the comedy business you have to have a target audience that you want to attract. This is important because when writing comedy material you need to know what people like to hear and what they will remember most about you. Many comics write for years and years before they finally come up with that perfect set that people will remember back then.

Step 2) Consistency

-One of the most important things to do is to be consistent. When chasing any dream, it takes determination to make things happen. If you only do one show a year, it’s going to be hard to hone your craft, so you have to stay on stage and keep writing jokes/material. You should also realize that the more people see you, the more they will remember your face and your material, so be consistent.

Step 3) Network

-Networking is very important in the comedy business because it’s not about how many jokes you can write, tell or how many minutes you can perform. It’s about who you know and who knows you! A lot of comics use each other to work, which is a good thing because no one knows everyone. You need to stay like minded comedians who believe in keeping a network of club managers, church group leaders and promoters on their contact list.

Step 4) Stay around positive people and develop thick skin

-You have to stay around positive people to be successful in anything, especially comedy, because people will kill your dream before you even start. A lot of people wish they were brave enough to get on stage and tell jokes, but because they can’t they’ll try to tear you down and expect you to be like them. If you hang out with the right people, they’ll cheer you on and even help you out by giving you a story or even a joke or two to use on stage. Don’t let critics’ comments judge you at all.

Step 5) You have products to sell

Finally, you must have products to sell to your audience. These items should include, but are not limited to, CDs, DVDs, t-shirts, hats, and anything else that doesn’t cost you a ton of money up front. Your goal should not be to make huge profits, but to keep your face in the eyes of your audience. Many comedians have learned this way of doing business and it works for many of them. Create unique marketing and advertising concepts and be the stand-up comedian.

If you follow these few steps I’ve listed, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a successful Christian comedian.
