The mark of a good stand up comedian is being able to tell the same joke all the time with a straight face and get the same reaction. Some preachers in a bid to keep numbers up have turned their sermons into full fledged stand up routines. Others try to do exegetical gymnastics. I really don’t know where to put renowned ‘anointed’ televangelist, word of faith pastor and bible expositor Jessie Duplantis (oh, who has also been to heaven and back unlike none of you).
The act is something you fall back on if you can’t think of anything else to say. ~Bill Hick’s Principles of Comedy
