Review Date: March 17, 2007

Rating: PG-13

Recommendation: While the comedians on this DVD were funny and really seem to have good intentions, some of the stand up was indecent. For this reason, I do not recommend this DVD.

Site Rating: 2 out of 10 stars

This DVD was disappointing. First off, it says "Gospel Comedy" in the title. Yet some of the jokes were vulgar and others irreverent.

The host, Lester Barrie, did a good job. Vince D's jokes about a black Pope were hilarious, but some of his other jokes, in particular, the ones joking about gifts of healing in the context it was put forward, was irreverent.

Edwonda White was funny, but her other cultural jokes were uncomfortable to watch. Drop the Asian cultural jokes from the act.

TJ McGee had the most inappropriate set of all, when he began singing certain vulgar modern songs, as though it were coming from a preacher, was highly inappropriate and went too far.

While the comedians on this DVD were funny and really seem to have good intentions, some of the stand up was indecent. For this reason, I do not recommend this DVD.

The church needn't make things too secular to catch a wide audience, as it might alienate the church crowd and mislead the secular one as well, as to what is acceptable Christian behavior.

Trying to make religion cool is not a good idea. There's a time for having fun and being informal with things in life, but there is a time to show reverence as well. Certain things in life are to be revered and kept as they are.

As a Christian, there is nothing wrong with being modern, tech savvy and aware of what's going on in society, but when it crosses the line into vulgarity and unintentional irreverence, it's gone in the wrong direction.

There's also nothing wrong with Christian comedy, but some of the jokes on this DVD were in the dangerous territory of being irreverent.

There's a phrase that goes, when in doubt, leave it out - and some of this stand up should have been left out.
