Christian Comic John Crist and Chick-Fil-A: A Match Made in Heaven August 20, 2019

In his latest video, Christian comedian John Crist heads to that very famous fast-food chicken restaurant that’s not open on Sundays and riffs some pickup lines — most of them guaranteed to ensure he remains single.


Who’s John Crist? Click here to find out what happened when I went to see him live last year. Here’s a taste:

One of eight homeschooled children of a Georgia preacher, the tattoo-free 34-year-old Crist (yes, that’s his real last name, and those are his real initials) has been doing stand-up comedy for a decade. But it’s only in the last few years that his scripted YouTube videos went viral, and his career took off. Here’s the oldest one on his YouTube page, a 4-year-old spoof of Christian dating sites, called Christian Farmers Only.

Many of Crist’s videos spoof aspects of Christian (read: Protestant/Evangelical) culture, along with the Southern experience, Millennials and life in general. My personal favorites are the two episodes of a House Hunters spoof, called Church Hunters (wrote about it, click here and here), along with How It’s Made: Christian Music (click here for my piece on that) and Celebrity Pastor Fantasy Draft (wrote about that here).

He does love Chick-Fil-A, but he got fired from a job there because he stirred the lemonade with his arm.

The Chick-Fil-A video follows upon another from last month …

And some music …

And a couple of favorites from the archives …

Don’t get triggered by this one …

Crist is currently on his Immature Thoughts tour; more info here.
