Living a Christian lifestyle doesn’t have to be boring. Christ calls us to honor Him and there are plenty of like-minded Christians that can help us do that.

For Example…If you want a good laugh, you can watch Christian Comedians.

Before I knew the Lord there were endless options for entertainment. I was able to watch anything on TV, listen to all sorts of music, and basically do whatever I wanted without feeling bad about it.

Once I accepted the Lord into my life, it completely changed my view. I dove headfirst studying the Bible so I could get to know my Savior. I started becoming convicted by the things I was doing before. I realized that I didn’t want to live two different lives.

I remember thinking…Can Christians Really Have Fun?

I realized that the things I was watching on TV and the music I was listening to weren’t glorifying the Lord. So, I had to do some digging and found that I can still have fun in this Christian life of mine. Prayer and devotional time really helped me clean out the garbage.

That was over 10 years ago and since then I’ve found so many ways to have fun that honor the Lord. Not only for my own entertainment but for my husband and kids as well. So today, I want to share our favorite Christian Comedians with you.

Best Christian Comedians

There are a few Christian comedians we listen to but our absolute favorite is Tim Hawkins!

Christian Comedians

Our friends introduced Tim Hawkins to us around 6 years ago. It was perfect timing because I was really starting to get discouraged trying to find a funny Christian comedian.

Now, let me first say that anyone can say they are a Christian comedian. You won’t really know the truth until you actually watch them. I was getting tired of watching “so-called” Christian comedy that ended up not being what it claimed.

Cuss words are not in my vocabulary so naturally, I’m not entertained by them. There are definitely ways to be funny without cussing.

So for the past 6 years, we’ve been enjoying Christian comedian Tim Hawkins.  He entertains with clean Christian comedy and he’s beyond hilarious. My kids actually try to impersonate him often.

Funny Christian Comedy

My goal here is to provide you with as much info about Tim Hawkins as possible. If you’re interested in clean funny Christian comedy, then it’s important to know information about the person entertaining you.

Tim Hawkins used to be a grocery store truck driver. In 2002, he decided to venture out and pursue Christian stand-up comedy. He’s not only a clean funny Christian comedian but he’s a Christian singing comedian too.  He’s been married (since 1993) and has four kiddos.

You may have heard some of Tim Hawkins songs before. His popular ones are:

  • Cletus Take the Reel (Parody from Carrie Underwood’s song “Jesus, Take the Wheel)

He’s actually really talented when it comes to playing guitar and singing funny Christian songs.  I was really surprised when I saw him perform these songs in person.

I mean who couldn’t get a good laugh about something in their marriage or homeschool? He has some really good punchlines and they are centered around the Bible.

Funny Christian Comedian Songs

I like to refer to Tim Hawkins as a funny Christian Comedian. Let’s face it, some comedians just aren’t funny. I’ve actually watched some Christian Comedians that can’t even make me laugh.

I’m going to highlight some of Tim Hawkins songs here because they are so funny. Reading the lyrics is one thing but watching Tim Hawkins perform these songs is hilarious. He has the funniest facial expressions and body movements to go with his songs.

Tim Hawkins Chick-fil-A Song

Chick-fil-A. I could eat there seven times a day
Where the people laugh and children play
Oh, I’m in love with Chick-fil-A

Suddenly, I need waffle fries in front of me
With some nuggets & a large sweet tea
Oh, Chick-fil-A. You set me free

Kids, get in the van! So we can go there today
But, their stores are closed!
Oh, I know
’cause it’s Sunday!

(Mad Voice)
Chick-fil-A, what a dirty, rotten trick to play!
Now I have to settle for Subway!
Oh, I’m in love with Chick-fil-A
Mmhmm… Chick-fil-A

Tim Hawkin’s Cletus Take the Reel Song

I was fishing last Friday on a lake in Mississippi in the humid summer heat
On a boat with my best friend Cletus who was sleeping in the back seat
Well the bites were slow and we were running low on chips and Gatorade
It’d been a long hard day

Felt a tug on the line and I didn’t pay attention it was spinning way too fast
Before I knew it I was staring at a ten-pound shiny bass
When I tried to pull the fish inside I pulled a muscle in my upper thigh
I was so scared I threw my rod up in the air

Cletus take the reel
Take it from my hand
Cause I can’t do it on my own
I’m letting go and I need your help bad
And if you don’t my fish is gone
Oh Cletus take the reel

Oh I’m letting go
And I need your help bad
And if you don’t my fish is gone
On this boat I’m on
Cletus take the reel
Oh take it take it from me

Clean Christian Comedy

Christian Stand Up Comedy

As I mentioned earlier, Tim Hawkins is hilarious. He is soooo talented at being a Christian Comedian. I can’t even begin to list all the different punchlines he has.

Before I conclude this post, I want to share my all-time favorite. I’m talking, I can watch it over and over again and still get a good laugh.

He’ll give you a great laugh when he talks about moms, homeschooling, parenting, church, and marriage. But my ultimate favorite is…That’s the Worst!

We saw him live when he performed “That’s the Worst” and it was seriously the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. We ended up buying the “That’s the Worst” DVD so we could watch his performance anytime.

Tim Hawkins Christian Comedy Tour Info

Here’s the exciting part, I think Tim is close to 50 years old (you would never know) and he is still scheduling tours. This is great news because you can still see Tim Hawkins “live”. But I have to warn you, his tours sell out fast. Yes…He’s that good! Thankfully he isn’t full of himself so you won’t have to spend a ton of money to see him.

He has all his tour information (including hilarious videos) on his website. You can also check him out on the his YouTube channel to get a sample of his shows. He puts all sorts of funny glimpses of what you can expect to see.
