12 Top Christian Comedians You Need To Follow On Social Media
Christian comedy has always been a powerful tool which brings laughter to people who really need it. When it comes to running a church event or looking to play a funny video for your youth group, Christian comedians are always the best way to go. But where do you start? Even when you do start, you might only find comedians from the 90's or early 2000's. Well, don't fret. There are a ton of hilarious Christian Comedians that are crushing it on social media and at churches everywhere! This list isn't just going to name the most famous ones (although some have a large platform). It's also going to list the funniest up and coming comedians who are on the verge of being a household name in the church world and more. At least half of this list already has a large following on social media.
In this top list, each comedian has surpassed a million views and constantly creating new content. The best part about each comedian is not just their quality but also quantity of their content. It used to be that if you wanted to see a great comedian, you would have to wait until they went to your town to perform or until a comedy special came out. The good news is, for every comic on this list, you don’t have to wait to see brand new content as each one uploads funny material every day. That’s right, every single day. Talk about on demand comedy. And the best part is that each performer on this list is a proud Christian. For every video you find on them, you can also find an interview or two about their relationship with Jesus. One of the greatest things about Christian comedians in the age of social media is that you get to see them intimately and closely see their walk with the Lord. So without further ado, this is the top 12 Christian comedians you need to follow on social media.
1. Chris Wineland
If you love late night comedy such as ‘The Tonight Show,’ this comedian is your guy
