Award-winning stand-up comedian John Crist continues to gain momentum as one of America’s young rising stars of comedy. Crist’s style of edgy but clean comedy keeps him on the road for a whirlwind schedule of over 250 live shows per year.

When asked how he finds the inspiration to write jokes, Crist says, “Shoot, I grew up in the south. My dad is a pastor, and I was the third of eight homeschooled children. Coming from a background like that, how do you NOT write jokes?!”

Crist’s youthful humor, quick wit, and unquestionable likeability (albeit occasional weirdness) have made him a crowd favorite in a diversity of locales- from churches, to universities and festivals, to corporate Fortune 500 events. His comedy has been featured on and he was named as one of the Top Five Comics to Watch by …he was even once a voice actor on the popular children’s radio show Adventures in Odyssey.
