John Crist – The Emotional Support Comedy Tour

June 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Fri Jun 30, 2023 • 7:30 PM at Reynolds Hall @The Smith Center for Performing Arts | Performing stand-up comedy and releasing sketches via his YouTube channel, John Crist’s comedy often revolves around the Christian culture he’s a part of. Many of his videos have gone viral, including Road Rage in the Church Parking Lot, Millennial International and Signs You Grew Up Christian, a collaboration with BuzzFeed. With millions of views across his YouTube channel, Crist’s other popular sketches include Every Parent at Disney, Christian Mingle Inspector, Lady Who Has a Bible Verse for Every Situation and Trying to Play Guess Who in 2018. Crist has opened shows for comedians such as Tim Hawkins and Jeff Foxworthy. He has also headlined several comedy tours, including two 2019 tours: the Up Close Comedy Tour and the Immature Thoughts Tour. Born the son of a pastor, John Crist is the third of eight homeschooled children in his family. His upbringing is often an inspiration for many of his jokes. Crist began performing comedy at open mic nights in 2009. That same year, he appeared on Louie Anderson’s Larger Than Life, making his first national appearance. Crist’s big break came in 2016 from the comedy sketch Christian Music: How It’s Made, a video he created with his friend Aaron Chewning that quickly went viral. The comedian presented his first tour to sell out, Captive Thoughts, in 2017 on the heels of his success with the sketch. Crist aims to present Christian comedy that is honest and transparent, never joking about the core belief system of Christianity, but rather poking fun at the issues he sees in today’s Christian subculture as a way to catalyze change. One of his most well-known catchphrases, Check Your Heart, encapsulates both his jokes concerning Christian culture and his desire to see the Church be the best it can be.
