  • WE'RE GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME TONIGHT! [AUDIENCE CHEERS] -I'M

  • SO EXCITED ABOUT WHAT THE LORD HAS IN STORE FOR US. HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:16.290
  • I WANT YOU TO DO! I WANT YOU TO YELL AT YOUR NEIGHBOR OUT
  • 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:19.260
  • THROUGH THE WINDOW; OPEN THE DOOR! CALL ALL YOUR FAMILY! TELL

  • THEM TO TURN IT ON RIGHT NOW. GET THE T.V.S ON! IT'S TIME TO

  • WANT YOU TO WATCH THIS ROLL IN. YOU'VE GOT TO WATCH THIS. WATCH

  • THIS RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:53.170
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:01:53.180 --> 00:01:56.070
  • -TORRY MARTIN HAS A LONG LIST OF
  • 00:01:56.080 --> 00:01:57.120
  • ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS AN ACTOR, AUTHOR, STORY TELLER, AND
  • 00:01:57.130 --> 00:02:00.160
  • STAND-UP COMEDIAN. HE CHOOSES TO USE HIS GIFTS OF WRITING TO
  • 00:02:00.170 --> 00:02:04.010
  • BRING SERIOUS MESSAGES AND A SPIRITUAL LESSON TO AUDIENCES
  • 00:02:04.020 --> 00:02:07.040
  • THROUGH HUMOR. -I THINK THAT I WOULD DESCRIBE MY BRAND OF
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:12.070
  • COMEDY AS, I GUESS, TORRY STORIES, BECAUSE THEY'RE
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:17.040
  • BASICALLY JUST STORIES ABOUT MY LIFE AND I FIND MYSELF IN A LOT
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:20.190
  • OF EMBARRASSING SITUATIONS THAT I FIND COMEDY IN OR OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:26.060
  • FIND COMEDY IN AND THEN I TRY TO APPLY A SPIRITUAL APPLICATION TO
  • 00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:29.170
  • WHATEVER THE LESSON IS THAT I'VE LEARNED. -TORRY BEGAN HIS
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:33.070
  • CAREER IN LOS ANGELES WORKING AS A STAND-UP COMIC AND ACTOR.
  • 00:02:33.080 --> 00:02:36.260
  • -THEN I STARTED TO DEVELOP A DRUG PROBLEM WHEN I WAS LIVING
  • 00:02:36.270 --> 00:02:38.280
  • IN LOS ANGELES. MY PARENTS WERE GOLD MINERS. THEY'D BEEN ON A
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:42.020
  • MINING TRIP TO ALASKA AND SUGGESTED THAT I TAKE SOME TIME
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:44.040
  • OUT AND GO TO ALASKA. SO I DID. I WENT TO ALASKA ON A VACATION
  • 00:02:44.050 --> 00:02:48.290
  • AND ENDED UP STAYING THERE. AND THAT'S WHERE I CAME TO THE LORD
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:51.250
  • THROUGH A PRECEPT BIBLE STUDY MINISTRY. -GIVING UP COMEDY AND
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:55.180
  • ACTING FOR 2 YEARS, TORRY DECIDED TO SPEND HIS TIME
  • 00:02:55.190 --> 00:02:59.020
  • WRITING AND BECOMING MORE GROUNDED IN HIS FAITH BY
  • 00:02:59.030 --> 00:03:01.250
  • STUDYING THE BIBLE. -IT SEEMED THE MORE TIME THAT I SPENT DOING
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:06.080
  • THE PRECEPT BIBLE STUDIES, THE MORE REAL THE BIBLE BECAME TO
  • 00:03:06.090 --> 00:03:10.130
  • ME. I MEAN, IT WAS REAL ALREADY, YOU KNOW, IT'S REAL STUFF; BUT
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:14.150
  • THE MORE YOU STUDY THE INTENT AND THE MEANING OF EACH WORD,
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:17.140
  • THE MORE CONVINCED YOU ARE THAT GOD WAS VERY SPECIFIC IN HIS
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:22.050
  • CHOICES OF THE WORDS. YOU FIND SO MUCH DEEPER MEANING. IT'S SO
  • 00:03:22.060 --> 00:03:26.020
  • MUCH MORE ENRICHING. IT JUST BRINGS YOU DEEPER IN YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:31.190
  • YOU KNOW? BUT ALSO DURING THAT PERIOD, I'D BE GOING TO THE
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:34.130
  • COFFEE SHOPS IN ALASKA, WHICH ARE EVERYWHERE BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:03:34.140 --> 00:03:36.190
  • FREEZING COLD UP THERE, DOING MY INDUCTIVE STUDY BIBLE. AND
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.280
  • SOMEONE WOULD START TALKING TO ME AND I'D JUST START SHARING MY
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:43.000
  • FAITH WITH THEM. A LOT OF PEOPLE, SOMETIMES THEY'LL LOOK
  • 00:03:43.010 --> 00:03:46.060
  • AT ME AND THEY'LL JUDGE ME BASED ON MY APPEARANCE, YOU KNOW, THE
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:48.210
  • LONG HAIR, THE BEARD; HOW CAN THAT GUY BE A CHRISTIAN? AND
  • 00:03:48.220 --> 00:03:50.240
  • THEN I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT? MAYBE IT'S THIS APPEARANCE THAT
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:54.280
  • MAKES ME MORE APPROACHABLE TO THE HIPPIES IN THE COFFEE SHOP.
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:58.050
  • AND MAYBE I'M SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE THIS BECAUSE I'M SUPPOSED
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:04:00.060
  • TO REACH PEOPLE THAT OTHER PEOPLE DON'T REACH. JUST LIKE
  • 00:04:00.070 --> 00:04:03.210
  • SOME PEOPLE RESPOND TO, YOU KNOW, A SUIT FOR THE SAVIOR. I
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:07.260
  • CALL THEM SUIT FOR THE SAVIOR. I'M A HIPPIE FOR THE HOLY ONE.
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:09.240
  • THE BALD PEOPLE ARE CUE BALLS FOR CHRIST. [LAUGHTER] BUT WE'RE
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:14.050
  • EACH CREATED DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE THERE'S DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:17.010
  • WE'RE SUPPOSED TO REACH AND IMPACT FOR THE KINGDOM. -TORRY
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:19.250
  • LOVES ACTING AND HAS APPEARED IN SEVERAL MOVIES LIKE MATCHMAKE
  • 00:04:19.260 --> 00:04:23.010
  • AND HEAVEN BOUND. AS AN AUTHOR, HE HAS WRITTEN SEVERAL
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:25.290
  • BOOKS, INCLUDING UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND WHAT A
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:28.220
  • CHARACTER, AS WELL AS WRITING FOR ADVENTURES IN ODYSSEY, A
  • 00:04:28.230 --> 00:04:32.070
  • CHILDREN'S RADIO SERIES PRODUCED BY FOCUS ON THE FAMILY. ONE OF
  • 00:04:32.080 --> 00:04:35.270
  • HIS MOST RECENT BOOKS OF MOOSE AND MEN DETAILS HIS EXPERIENCES
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:39.190
  • OF LIVING IN ALASKA. -IN THE WINTER, YOU KNOW, WE CAN SO MUCH
  • 00:04:39.200 --> 00:04:44.030
  • SNOW THAT, WHAT'S JUST A 45 MINUTE DRIVE FOR US TO GET TO
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:46.230
  • CHURCH, COULD TAKE 2 HOURS DEPENDING ON THE SNOW. SO WE
  • 00:04:46.240 --> 00:04:50.030
  • COULDN'T MAKE THAT 2 HOUR TRIP FOR THE EVENING AND THE MORNING
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:53.090
  • SERVICE, SO PASTOR AKINS STARTED ASKING US TO HAVE DINNER AT HIS
  • 00:04:53.100 --> 00:04:56.130
  • HOUSE. AND I'D BE THERE AT DINNER AT HIS HOUSE TELLING HIM
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:58.160
  • ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED THAT WEEK AT THE CABIN. IF YOU LET A MOOSE IN
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:02.050
  • YOUR HOUSE, DO NOT THINK, YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS IS GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:04.140
  • A GREAT PICTURE, GO GRAB YOUR CAMERA AND THEN DECIDE, THAT
  • 00:05:04.150 --> 00:05:06.220
  • NOSE REALLY LOOKS KIND OF VELVETY. I'M JUST GOING TO TOUCH
  • 00:05:06.230 --> 00:05:10.140
  • IT BECAUSE THE MOOSE NOSE IS VERY SENSITIVE AND THEY WILL GO
  • 00:05:10.150 --> 00:05:13.090
  • BESERK. AND THEY WILL TAKE YOUR WINDOW FRAME AND RUN IT INTO THE
  • 00:05:13.100 --> 00:05:16.150
  • FOREST. NOT THAT THAT HAPPENED, BUT IT DID! -AS A STORYTELLER,
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:20.240
  • ONE OF TORRY'S FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IS TO FIND HUMOR FROM
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:23.280
  • EVENTS IN HIS OWN LIFE. HE FEELS, AS CHRISTIANS, WE SHOULD
  • 00:05:23.290 --> 00:05:26.170
  • SHARE OUR REAL LIFE STRUGGLES AND BURDENS WITH ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:30.010
  • -I THINK GOD HAS A WAY OF INTERJECTING JOY INTO WHAT WOULD
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:35.010
  • OTHERWISE BE A STRESSFUL SITUATION, AND HE HELPS US TO
  • 00:05:35.020 --> 00:05:38.110
  • FIND THE HUMOR IN THINGS. I THINK THAT MOST COMEDY FOR ME
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:41.080
  • COMES FROM PAIN. YOU KNOW? IT'S A WAY OF COPING. WHEN I WAS IN
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:45.250
  • COLLEGE, I HAD THIS ONE TEACHER WHO DIDN'T LIKE ME AND AT THE
  • 00:05:45.260 --> 00:05:51.180
  • END OF THE SEMESTER HE WOULD GO THROUGH THE CLASS AND TELL
  • 00:05:51.190 --> 00:05:55.000
  • PEOPLE WHAT HIS EXPECTATIONS WERE FOR THEM. AND I REMEMBER
  • 00:05:55.010 --> 00:05:57.270
  • SITTING THERE, AND I WASN'T DOING GOOD; IT WAS A MATH CLASS.
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:06:00.230
  • I WAS HORRIBLE AT IT. AND HE WOULD SAY, FROM YOU I EXPECT
  • 00:06:00.240 --> 00:06:03.080
  • THIS, AND BILL'S PROBABLY GOING TO BE A FAMOUS SURGEON. I HAVE
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:07.250
  • HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR THAT. AND THEN HE CAME TO ME AND HE GOES
  • 00:06:07.260 --> 00:06:10.010
  • AND FROM TORRY, FROM YOU, I EXPECT NOTHING. AND THEN HE WENT
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:16.180
  • ON. AND I JUST REMEMBER THE IMPACT OF THAT FALLING ON IN ME
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:21.190
  • THAT THERE WERE NO EXPECTATIONS. AND I HAD ANOTHER TEACHER, WHEN
  • 00:06:21.200 --> 00:06:24.230
  • I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL WHO JUST OFF-THE-CUFF JUST SAID, CAUSE I
  • 00:06:24.240 --> 00:06:28.100
  • WASN'T A GOOD STUDENT, SO WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU, WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:31.000
  • HANDING ME MY MATTER, HE'S LIKE, WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU, ARE
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:33.090
  • YOU STUPID? YEAH, YOU'RE STUPID, AREN'T YOU? AND IT WAS JUST AN
  • 00:06:33.100 --> 00:06:35.150
  • OFF-THE-CUFF THING AND HE WENT ON, BUT THAT SUNK IN TOO. SO
  • 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:38.210
  • WHEN PASTOR AKIN SAID WE THINK THAT YOU'RE JUST SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:41.260
  • YOURSELF, MY RESPONSE WAS, PASTOR, I DON'T THINK GOD WANTS
  • 00:06:41.270 --> 00:06:46.050
  • TO USE ME LIKE THAT BECAUSE I'M STUPID. AND PASTOR AKIN, I
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:51.070
  • REMEMBER HIM LOOKING AT ME REALLY SERIOUSLY AND SAYING,
  • 00:06:51.080 --> 00:06:52.250
  • WELL, YES, [LAUGHTER] BUT YOU ARE VERY UNIQUE IN YOUR
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:59.190
  • STUPIDITY. AND I REMEMBER TAKING SUCH COMFORT IN THAT. I WAS,
  • 00:06:59.200 --> 00:07:03.240
  • LIKE, PRAISE THE LORD! I'M UNIQUELY STUPID! [LAUGHTER] AND
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:07.040
  • YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHAT GOD USES. HE DOESN'T USE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:10.020
  • PERFECT. HE USES PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING. NO MATTER HOW SMART
  • 00:07:10.030 --> 00:07:13.170
  • THEY ARE.
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:15.040
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:07:15.050 --> 00:07:21.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:07:21.010 --> 00:07:25.040
  • JASON CRABB: OH! LADIES AND
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:27.200
  • GENTLEMEN, MAKE WELCOME TORRY MARTIN! [MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] TORRY
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:39.150
  • MARTIN: ALRIGHT! STOP! STOP! WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO SO I'M
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:43.200
  • GOING TO TALK REALLY, REALLY FAST. AND I'M SUPER NERVOUS
  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:46.060
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE EVER DONE MY COMEDY ON
  • 00:07:46.070 --> 00:07:49.180
  • TELEVISION. SO BE PREPARED! BUCKLE UP! [LAUGHTER] NOW I KNOW
  • 00:07:49.190 --> 00:07:55.010
  • THAT MOST OF THE COMEDIANS YOU'VE SEEN IN THE PAST ARE ALL
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:07:57.070
  • MARRIED, BUT YOU'RE IN LUCK TONIGHT, LADIES! [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:08:05.000
  • SHAZAAM! [LAUGHTER] CAUSE I'M SINGLE! SINGLE AND IN THERAPY!
  • 00:08:05.010 --> 00:08:12.270
  • [LAUGHTER] IS THERE A GOD OR WHAT? AND IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH
  • 00:08:12.280 --> 00:08:17.130
  • TO GET A DATE, I'M ALSO A WRITER, BUT THAT'S NOT MY FAULT.
  • 00:08:17.140 --> 00:08:20.040
  • I'M NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS ASPIRED TO BE A WRITER,
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:22.030
  • EVEN DREAMED OF. SEE, I JUST SPENT THE LAST YEARS OF MY LIFE
  • 00:08:22.040 --> 00:08:24.110
  • LIVING IN A REMOTE CABIN IN ALASKA AND I GUESS WRITING SOS
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:28.030
  • IN THE SNOW EVERY DAY SORT OF INSPIRED ME TO MAKE IT A FULL
  • 00:08:28.040 --> 00:08:32.090
  • TIME JOB. [LAUGHTER] NOW THE CABIN WAS LOCATED IN BEAR VALLEY
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:36.160
  • ALASKA, AND IT WAS SO REMOTE THAT AFTER YOU PARKED OUT ON THE
  • 00:08:36.170 --> 00:08:38.190
  • MAIN DRIVEWAY, YOU STILL HAD A 200 YARD TRAIL TO HIKE JUST TO
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:42.040
  • REACH THE CABIN. TELL ME! I MEAN,TRICK-OR-TREATERS DIDN'T
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:46.080
  • EVEN BOTHER. [LAUGHTER] SERIOUSLY! I HAD TO EAT THE
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:49.170
  • CANDY ALL BY MYSELF. [LAUGHTER] APPARENTLY FOR SEVERAL YEARS IN
  • 00:08:49.180 --> 00:08:58.050
  • A ROW! AND THE CABIN WASN'T ANYTHING FANCY EITHER, I MEAN,
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:09:02.260
  • IT WAS SO RUNDOWN THAT THE FRONT DOOR OF THE CABIN DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:04.270
  • HAVE AN OUTSIDE DOORKNOB. IT WAS MISSING BEFORE I EVEN MOVED INTO
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:07.260
  • THE PLACE. AND DURING THE WHOLE 5 YEARS I LIVED THERE I JUST
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:09.280
  • NEVER GOT AROUND TO FIXING IT, WHICH I KNOW SOUNDS LIKE A
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:13.220
  • MARRIED MAN. BUT ONCE AGAIN, I'M SINGLE. I JUST TAKE MY TRAINING,
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:17.230
  • I JUST TAKE MY TRAINING VERY SERIOUSLY. OH, BY THE WAY, RIGHT
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:22.230
  • AFTER WE MOVED INTO BEAR VALLEY, WE LEARNED THAT IT WAS
  • 00:09:22.240 --> 00:09:24.220
  • APPROPRIATELY NAMED BECAUSE NOT ONLY WAS IT, INDEED, A VALLEY,
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:27.110
  • BUT IT WAS ALSO COMMONLY KNOWN AS A FAVORITE HUNTING GROUND FOR
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:29.250
  • BEARS OF ALL KINDS. AND IN ALASKA, THERE'S BASICALLY JUST 3
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:34.140
  • KINDS OF BEARS. THERE'S THE PASSIVE BEAR, AND HE'LL LEAVE
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:38.110
  • YOU ALONE IF YOU LEAVE HIM ALONE. BUT THEN THERE IS THE
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:41.260
  • AGGRESSIVE BEAR. AND THAT BEAR WILL ATTACK YOU FOR NO REASON!
  • 00:09:41.270 --> 00:09:46.030
  • [LAUGHTER] AND THEN THERE'S THE PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE BEAR WHO WILL
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:49.080
  • ATTACK YOU BUT REALLY FEEL BAD ABOUT IT AFTERWARDS. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:53.260
  • IM SO SORRY I KILLED YOU AND STUFF. [LAUGHTER] WELL, I SHARED
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:56.240
  • THE CABIN WITH 3 OTHER ROOMMATES. THERE WAS MY
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:59.000
  • ROOMMATE, ROB, WHO WAS STUDYING FOR THE MINISTRY. AND MY CAT,
  • 00:09:59.010 --> 00:10:02.170
  • RUSTY, WHO WAS STUDYING TO BE A MISSIONARY; AT LEAST I THINK HE
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:06.270
  • WAS, EVERY TIME I OPENED THE FRONT DOOR ALL THAT CAT WANTED
  • 00:10:06.280 --> 00:10:08.170
  • WAS OUT INTO THE WORLD! [LAUGHTER] AND I ALSO SHARED THE
  • 00:10:08.180 --> 00:10:11.160
  • CABIN WITH MY DOG, SAM. SO WE ALL HAD CERTAIN RESPONSIBILITIES
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:16.060
  • WHILE WE LIVED IN THE CABIN. SINCE I SPENT MOST OF MY DAY
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:18.070
  • WRITING, MY MAIN JOB WAS TO BE THE CHIEF COOK, BOTTLE WASHER,
  • 00:10:18.080 --> 00:10:21.010
  • AND TO KEEP THE CABIN CLEAN. ROB'S ONLY JOB WAS JUST TO
  • 00:10:21.020 --> 00:10:23.140
  • REMEMBER EVERY DAY WHEN HE WENT TO WORK TO TAKE THE TRASH, PUT
  • 00:10:23.150 --> 00:10:26.070
  • IT IN THE SLED, HIKE IT DOWN THE 200 YARD TRAIL AND THEN PUT IT
  • 00:10:26.080 --> 00:10:29.070
  • INTO A DUMPSTER WHEN HE GOT TO HIS OFFICES AT WORK. BUT THE
  • 00:10:29.080 --> 00:10:32.020
  • PEOPLE HE WORKED WITH, THEY DIDN'T CARE THAT WE LEFT OUR
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:34.020
  • TRASH THERE BECAUSE THEY KNEW THAT LEAVING TRASH OUTSIDE WHERE
  • 00:10:34.030 --> 00:10:36.090
  • WE LIVED WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE AN OPEN INVITATION FOR A BEAR TO
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:39.170
  • STOP BY FOR BRUNCH. I DIDN'T NOW A LOT BUT I DID KNOW THAT THAT
  • 00:10:39.180 --> 00:10:42.210
  • WOULD NOT BE A GOOD THING. I MEAN, EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT IF A
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:45.010
  • BEAR STOPS BY AND HE SPOTS YOU, HE'S USUALLY THINKING LUNCH.
  • 00:10:45.020 --> 00:10:48.180
  • [LAUGHTER] I KNEW IF A BEAR STOPPED BY AND SPOTTED ME, HE'D
  • 00:10:48.190 --> 00:10:50.020
  • BE THINKING, ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET! [LAUGHTER] I'M NOT
  • 00:10:50.030 --> 00:10:52.270
  • HAVING ANY OF THAT! BUT BEING TYPICAL MEN, JUST BECAUSE WE
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:56.200
  • KNEW WHAT OUR RESPONSIBILITIES WERE, IT DOESN'T MEAN WE WERE
  • 00:10:56.210 --> 00:10:59.250
  • REALLY EFFICIENT WHEN IT CAME TIME TO FULFILL THEM. LIKE
  • 00:10:59.260 --> 00:11:02.120
  • SOMETIMES I'D BE SO BUSY WRITING, I'D FORGET TO CLEAN THE
  • 00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:04.180
  • CABIN. AND SOMETIMES ROB WOULD BE IN SUCH A HURRY TO GET TO
  • 00:11:04.190 --> 00:11:06.270
  • WORK, HE WOULD FORGET TO TAKE THE TRASH. AND THAT'S HAPPENED
  • 00:11:06.280 --> 00:11:10.020
  • THIS ONE DAY. I WAS HARD AT WORK ON MY LATEST EPISODE OF
  • 00:11:10.030 --> 00:11:13.270
  • ADVENTURES IN ODYSSEY, WHEN ALL THE SUDDEN I STARTED TO
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:16.240
  • ENCOUNTER THIS REALLY SEVERE WRITER'S BLOCK. WRITER'S BLOCK
  • 00:11:16.250 --> 00:11:20.200
  • IS A TECHNICAL TERM THAT MEN USE THAT WHEN TRANSLATED FROM MAN
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:23.140
  • SPEAK, IT MEANS MY BALL GAME WAS ON. [LAUGHTER] SO I WAS, LIKE,
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:27.270
  • ALL INTO MY GAME AND ALL THE SUDDEN MY DOG, SAM, WHO IS A 120
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:30.040
  • LB BLACK LAB JUST STARTED GOING NUTS. HE RACED UP TO THE FRONT
  • 00:11:30.050 --> 00:11:33.060
  • DOOR OF THE CABIN AND STARTED BARKING AS LOUD AS HE COULD. NOW
  • 00:11:33.070 --> 00:11:35.270
  • USUALLY THAT MEANT ONLY 1 THING, THAT THERE WAS LIKE ANOTHER
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:38.160
  • MOOSE OUTSIDE; EITHER THAT OR, LIKE, A REALLY LOST AVON LADY.
  • 00:11:38.170 --> 00:11:43.170
  • [LAUGHTER] SO I GOT UP TO INVESTIGATE, OPENED THE FRONT
  • 00:11:43.180 --> 00:11:45.290
  • DOOR AND RIGHT THERE WAS THE BIGGEST BLACK BEAR THAT I'D EVER
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:50.030
  • SEEN IN MY LIFE. AND HE WAS GOING RIGHT THROUGH THE TRASH
  • 00:11:50.040 --> 00:11:52.290
  • THAT ROB HAD FORGOTTEN TO TAKE TO WORK. SO I OPENED THE DOOR
  • 00:11:53.000 --> 00:11:56.050
  • AND I WAS, LIKE, BEAR! CLOSE THE CABIN DOOR! [LAUGHTER] OPEN THE
  • 00:11:56.060 --> 00:12:01.200
  • CABIN DOOR. IT'S STILL A BEAR! CLOSE THE CABIN DOOR. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:12:01.210 --> 00:12:06.250
  • AND THEN REMEMBER WHEN I TOLD YOU ABOUT THE FRONT DOOR KNOB
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:08.080
  • WAS BROKEN SO WE NEVER FIXED IT, THE NICE THING ABOUT THING IS
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:10.070
  • THE ADVANTAGE OF NOT HAVING AN OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB IS THE LAST
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:11.250
  • THING YOU WANT TO DO WHEN YOU'RE COMING DOWN A TRAIL WITH A WHOLE
  • 00:12:11.260 --> 00:12:15.260
  • SLED-FULL OF GROCERIES IS TO HAVE TO FIDDLE WITH A DOOR LOCK,
  • 00:12:15.270 --> 00:12:18.150
  • BUT INSTEAD YOU JUST KICK THE CABIN DOOR AND, LIKE, WALK RIGHT
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.200
  • ON IN. SO I'M, LIKE, THERE'S THE BEAR! I CLOSE THE DOOR AND I'M,
  • 00:12:20.210 --> 00:12:23.200
  • LIKE, THE BEAR, ALL HE'S GOING TO HAVE TO DO IF HE WANTS TO GET
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:25.150
  • IN IS PUSH AGAINST THE DOOR. SO I GRAB THE REFRIGERATOR AND I
  • 00:12:25.160 --> 00:12:28.010
  • SCOOTED IT OUT TO USE IT TO BRACE AGAINST THE DOOR, OR TO
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:32.050
  • MAKE IT EASIER TO GRAB MY LAST MEAL SHOULD ANYTHING GO ARRAY.
  • 00:12:32.060 --> 00:12:39.000
  • YOU KNOW, BEAR HAS MY LEG, I HAVE A SANDWICH; WE'RE BOTH
  • 00:12:39.010 --> 00:12:41.210
  • HAPPY, LET'S GO! [LAUGHTER] WELL, I THEN LOOKED AT MY WATCH
  • 00:12:41.220 --> 00:12:44.210
  • AND IT WAS 5:30 AND THAT MEANT THAT AT ANYTIME NOW ROB WAS
  • 00:12:44.220 --> 00:12:46.230
  • GOING TO BE HOME FROM WORK. AND I KNEW ROB WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:12:46.240 --> 00:12:49.150
  • WALKING THE TRAIL, SPOT THE BEAR, AND PROBABLY START TO
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:52.240
  • PRAY. NOW I KNEW THE BEAR WOULD BE WALKING THE TRAIL AND SPOT
  • 00:12:52.250 --> 00:12:55.110
  • ROB AND PROBABLY THINK HIS PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED.
  • 00:12:55.120 --> 00:12:59.060
  • [LAUGHTER] SO I RAN TO THE KITCHEN PHONE TO CALL ROB ON HIS
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:01.290
  • CELL PHONE TO WARN HIM ABOUT THE BEAR. I DIALED HIS NUMBER AS
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:04.010
  • FAST AS I COULD, I'M, LIKE, ROB, THERE IS A BLACK BEAR RIGHT
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:06.120
  • OUTSIDE THE CABIN DOOR. AND ROB GOES, WELL, WHERE'S THE PEPPER
  • 00:13:06.130 --> 00:13:09.170
  • SPRAY I GOT YOU? I'M, LIKE, IT'S IN THE SPICE RACK. DID YOU HEAR
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:14.040
  • WHAT I JUST SAID? THERE'S A LIVE BLACK BEAR; HE'S RIGHT OUTSIDE
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:16.220
  • THE FRONT DOOR. YOU'RE GOING TO RUN INTO HIM. AND ROB GOES,
  • 00:13:16.230 --> 00:13:20.140
  • WELL, TORRY, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO USE THE PEPPER SPRAY ON THE
  • 00:13:20.150 --> 00:13:22.160
  • BEAR. AND HE WASN'T MAKING ANY SENSE AT ALL TO ME, SO I WAS,
  • 00:13:22.170 --> 00:13:25.010
  • LIKE, ROB, WOULDN'T THE BEAR NEED TO BE DEAD BEFORE I TRY TO
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:27.180
  • SEASON HIM? [LAUGHTER] I'M CALLING YOU TO TELL YOU THAT
  • 00:13:27.190 --> 00:13:32.140
  • THERE'S A LIVE BEAR OUTSIDE THE CABIN NOW! AND THAT'S WHEN ROB
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:38.110
  • FINALLY EXPLAINED TO ME THE PROPER USAGE FOR THE PEPPER
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:40.240
  • SPRAY. SEE, A FEW MONTHS PREVIOUS ONE OF HIS FRIENDS WHO
  • 00:13:40.250 --> 00:13:43.210
  • FOUND OUT WE WERE LIVING IN BEAR VALLEY THAT GAVE HIM THE PEPPER
  • 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:45.230
  • SPRAY. AND I REMEMBER THIS DISTINCTLY; I WAS COOKING DINNER
  • 00:13:45.240 --> 00:13:48.120
  • IN THE KITCHEN, ROB KICKED OPEN THE CABIN DOOR, SLID HIS WORK
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:50.240
  • TOOLS IN, HANDED ME THE CAN OF PEPPER SPRAY AND SAID, HERE,
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:53.050
  • DUDE, USE IT IF YOU EVER HAVE TO. AND SO I DID-ON MY HOMEMADE
  • 00:13:53.060 --> 00:14:00.020
  • CHILI, AND MY TACOS, AND BURRITOS. [LAUGHTER] SERIOUSLY,
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:03.080
  • FOR THE LONGEST TIME. BUT THE CAN WOULDN'T SHOOT LIKE THE PAM
  • 00:14:03.090 --> 00:14:06.060
  • COOKING SPRAY WHERE IT GOES DIRECTLY INTO THE PAN, THIS
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:08.050
  • STUFF CAME OUT IN A MIST. AND IF YOU WEREN'T CAREFUL, THE MIST
  • 00:14:08.060 --> 00:14:11.110
  • WOULD COME RIGHT BACK UP INTO YOUR FACE AND YOU'D START YOUR
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:13.040
  • NOSE RUNNING AND YOUR EYES WOULD GET ALL, AND IF YOU USED TOO
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:16.070
  • MUCH, IT WOULD GIVE A REALLY CHEMICALLY TYPE AFTERTASTE TO
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:20.130
  • IT. BUT THE WHOLE TIME I WAS USING IT, I THOUGHT THAT THE
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:23.050
  • NOZZEL WAS BROKEN AND I DIDN'T WANT TO COMPLAIN BECAUSE, YOU
  • 00:14:23.060 --> 00:14:25.220
  • KNOW, IT WAS A GIFT. SO I HAD TO LEARN TO GET REALLY CLOSE TO THE
  • 00:14:25.230 --> 00:14:30.100
  • PAN AND THEN TURN MY HEAD AND GIVE IT JUST A LITTLE SPRAY,
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:32.270
  • JUST A LITTLE [PFFT]. JUST ENOUGH TO SEASON IT. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:32.280 --> 00:14:36.260
  • AND THE WHOLE TIME I WAS USING IT, I KEPT THINKING, MAN, IF
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:38.200
  • THEY COME OUT WITH GARLIC IN A CAN, MY SPAGHETTI WOULD BE DONE
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:42.150
  • LIKE THAT. [SNAPS] [LAUGHTER] SO THEN, OKAY, THAT WAS ADHD. WHERE
  • 00:14:42.160 --> 00:14:47.110
  • WAS I? SO ROB? ROB? ROB IS THE TYPE OF GUY WHO HATES TO BE
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:54.190
  • MISQUOTED SO IT'S IMPORTANT I GET THIS NEXT PART RIGHT.
  • 00:14:54.200 --> 00:14:57.250
  • BECAUSE ROB SAYS, TORRY, WHAT FLAVOR OF STUPID ARE YOU? AND I
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:15:04.100
  • REMEMBER ACTUALLY THINKING, STUPID COMES IN FLAVORS?
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:08.100
  • [LAUGHTER] HE WAS JUST, LIKE, SET THE PHONE DOWN, GRAB THE
  • 00:15:08.110 --> 00:15:12.230
  • PEPPER SPRAY, OPEN THE FRONT DOOR, SPRAY IT ON THE BEAR AND
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.160
  • THEN COME BACK AND TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED. AND I'M, LIKE, OKAY! I
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:16.160
  • MEAN, SURE IT'S EASY FOR HIM TO SOUND LOGICAL. YOU KNOW, HE'S
  • 00:15:16.170 --> 00:15:21.010
  • NOT THE ONE WITH THE BEAR OUTSIDE THE CABIN LIKE IT'S A
  • 00:15:21.020 --> 00:15:23.110
  • GREAT BIG MCDONALDS AND YOU'RE THE HAPPY MEAL HE WANTS TO ORDER
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:25.160
  • UP. [LAUGHTER] BUT DOING WHAT HE SAID, I SET THE PHONE DOWN. I
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:30.010
  • THEN WALKED OVER TO THE SPICE RACK, GRABBED THE PEPPER SPRAY,
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:32.170
  • WALKED UP TO THE FRONT DOOR, SCOOTED BACK THE FRIG, SAID A
  • 00:15:32.180 --> 00:15:35.050
  • QUICK PRAYER, OPENED THE FRONT DOOR, LIFTED THE PEPPER SPRAY
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:37.270
  • AND SPRAYED IT DIRECTLY IN MY FACE! [LAUGHTER] I WAS, LIKE,
  • 00:15:37.280 --> 00:15:43.060
  • [SCREAMS] SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS! I GOT BLINDED IN
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:51.140
  • THE WHOLE PROCESS, BUT I MANAGED TO STUMBLE AROUND THE KITCHEN,
  • 00:15:51.150 --> 00:15:53.250
  • DESTROYING POTS, PANS, CABINETS, EVERYTHING. BELIEVE YOU ME, I
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:57.000
  • FORGOT ALL ABOUT THE BEAR. MORE IMPORTANTLY, I FORGOT ALL ABOUT
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:16:01.260
  • THE FACT THAT ROB WAS STILL LISTENING ON THE PHONE TO WHAT
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:04.220
  • HE NOW ASSUMED WAS THE SOUND OF THE BEAR ATTACKING ME.
  • 00:16:04.230 --> 00:16:07.080
  • [LAUGHTER] SO ROB'S FLYING DOWN THE ANCHORAGE HIGHWAY GOING,
  • 00:16:07.090 --> 00:16:12.080
  • LIKE, 90 MILES AN HOUR PRAYING HE'LL GET HOME IN TIME TO SAVE
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:14.160
  • ME FROM THE SERIOUS JAWS OF DEATH. MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:17.290
  • CABIN, MY EYES ARE SWOLLEN SHUT. I COULD NOT EVEN OPEN THEM WITH
  • 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:22.260
  • MY FINGERS. AND I HATE TO BE GRAPHIC, BUT [SNIFFS] I HAD SNOT
  • 00:16:22.270 --> 00:16:28.270
  • POURING OUT OF MY NOSE LIKE IT WAS A FOUNTAIN! [LAUGHTER] AND
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:32.170
  • THE MORE I WAS TRYING TO WIPE THE PEPPER SPRAY OFF THE FACE,
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:35.100
  • THE MORE I WAS ACTUALLY CAUSING IT TO SMEAR AND STICK ALL OVER
  • 00:16:35.110 --> 00:16:38.260
  • THE SKIN BECAUSE I LATER LEARNED THAT IT HAS AN OIL BASE DESIGNED
  • 00:16:38.270 --> 00:16:42.230
  • TO CLING TO THE INTRUDER. SO I'M STUMBLING TO THE SINK, I'M
  • 00:16:42.240 --> 00:16:46.290
  • GETTING THE ICE CUBES, THE WASH RAG, I STUMBLED INTO A CHAIR,
  • 00:16:47.000 --> 00:16:49.100
  • AND BECAUSE I'M CRYING UNCONTROLLABLY, BECAUSE THAT'S
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:52.290
  • WHAT THIS STUFF DOES, IT JUST MAKES YOU CRY, BUT BECAUSE I HAD
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:57.020
  • SCREAMED WHEN I SPRAYED IT, SOME OF IT WENT INTO MY MOUTH TOO! SO
  • 00:16:57.030 --> 00:17:00.180
  • NOW I'M NOT JUST CRYING, I'M ALSO GASPING FOR AIR. I WAS,
  • 00:17:00.190 --> 00:17:05.200
  • LIKE, [CRYING AND GASPING] [LAUGHTER] STILL OBLIVIOUS TO
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:19.070
  • THE FACT THAT ROB NOW ASSUMES HE'S LISTENING TO MY LAST DYING
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:22.210
  • GASPS OF AIR. [LAUGHTER] AFTER SITTING AT THE KITCHEN TABLE FOR
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:26.110
  • THE NEXT 20 MINUTES, I SUDDENLY HEARD THE KITCHEN DOOR SLAM OPEN
  • 00:17:26.120 --> 00:17:31.050
  • AND THAT'S WHEN I REMEMBER, [GASPS] THE BEAR! [LAUGHTER] AND
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:40.270
  • THEN I HEARD A VOICE, TORRY! [GASPS] IT'S A TALKING BEAR!
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:45.220
  • [LAUGHTER] AND IT'S STALKING ME! BUT IT WASN'T A BEAR AT ALL; IT
  • 00:17:45.230 --> 00:17:51.070
  • WAS ROB AND HE WAS, LIKE, ARE YOU OKAY? AND I'M, LIKE,
  • 00:17:51.080 --> 00:17:56.160
  • [STUTTERS] I GUESS SO. AND HE GOES, WELL, WHERE'S THE BEAR?
  • 00:17:56.170 --> 00:18:00.110
  • AND I'M, LIKE, WELL, I DON'T KNOW. [LAUGHTER] I GUESS ALL
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:05.220
  • THAT SCREAMING AND FLAILING OF MY ARMS MUST HAVE SCARED HIM
  • 00:18:05.230 --> 00:18:08.150
  • OFF. [LAUGHTER] HEY! THIS STUFF REALLY DOES WORK ON BEARS,
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:14.010
  • DOESN'T IT? [LAUGHTER] BUT, OF COURSE, IF I DESIGNED IT, I
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:18.240
  • WOULD HAVE HAD THE NOZZLE FACE A DIFFERENT DIRECTION! [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:18.250 --> 00:18:23.230
  • GOD HAS GIVEN US A VERY PRACTICAL WEAPON, AND THAT
  • 00:18:23.240 --> 00:18:28.050
  • WEAPON IS CALLED THE BIBLE. THE VERY WORD OF GOD. AND THE
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:33.250
  • DIRECTIONS ARE PRETTY SIMPLE IF WE TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT
  • 00:18:33.260 --> 00:18:36.190
  • CORRECTLY. BUT SO MANY OF US KEEP OUR BIBLES, PEPPER SPRAYS,
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:41.170
  • UP ON THE BOOK SHELF, OR SPICE RACK, WITHOUT EVER TAKING THE
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:44.100
  • TIME TO BRING IT DOWN AND OPEN IT UP AND GET FAMILIAR WITH THE
  • 00:18:44.110 --> 00:18:46.240
  • CONTENTS THAT GOD HAS PROVIDED YOU WITH. AND THEN WHEN YOU END
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:50.030
  • UP GETTING UNDER ATTACK, YOU END UP SPRAYING YOURSELF AND
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:54.160
  • BECOMING BLINDED AND UNABLE TO SEE AND IGNORANT BY YOUR, YOUR
  • 00:18:54.170 --> 00:18:59.190
  • OWN METHODS. SO MY ADVICE TO YOU GUYS TONIGHT IS, AFTER
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:08.160
  • EVERYTHING'S OVER AND YOU'RE BACK HOME ON YOUR OWN, TAKE THE
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:10.290
  • TIME TO BRING YOUR BIBLE DOWN, OPEN IT UP, GET FAMILIAR WITH
  • 00:19:11.000 --> 00:19:13.190
  • THE DIRECTIONS THAT GOD HAS PROVIDED YOU WITH. JUST MAKE
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:15.130
  • SURE THE BIBLE IS FACING THE RIGHT DIRECTION WHEN YOU READ
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:17.130
  • IT. BECAUSE IF YOU DO DO THAT, WHEW, YOU'LL SAVE YOURSELF A

  • -I AM. -YOU FLY OUT? -I WAS GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT MY CAP
  • 00:20:55.030 --> 00:20:57.280
  • BUT I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO TELL YOU ABOUT MY CAP.

  • ON A SEQUEL TO OF MOOSE AND MEN AND IT'S CALLED THE CALL
  • 00:21:07.140 --> 00:21:10.140
  • OF THE MILD. AND IT'S ABOUT RESPONDING TO THE LION'S ROAR;
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:13.280
  • ABOUT FALLING GOD'S CALLING ON YOUR LIFE. AND SO I'M GOING UP
  • 00:21:13.290 --> 00:21:18.030

  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:22.130
  • 5 MOVIES AND EVERYTHING, IT'S REALLY FUN, BUT THERE IS
  • 00:21:22.140 --> 00:21:25.030
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THIS BUSINESS, MAN, IT DRIES YOU UP. THE MORE
  • 00:21:25.040 --> 00:21:29.210
  • YOU TRY TO DO SOMETHING FOR GOD, THE MORE EVERYTHING ELSE FILLS
  • 00:21:29.220 --> 00:21:31.210

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:22:09.240 --> 00:22:11.000
  • -STAND-UP COMIC, ACTOR AND AUTHOR, BRAD STINE, IS
  • 00:22:11.010 --> 00:22:13.090
  • ONE OF THE MOST MEDIA COVERED CHRISTIAN COMEDIANS IN AMERICA.
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:16.240
  • KNOWN FOR HIS CONSERVATISM, HIS COMEDIC STYLE HAS BEEN DESCRIBED
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:20.110
  • AS FRANTIC, AGGRESSIVE, AND COSTIC. -I, ACTUALLY, BELIEVE
  • 00:22:20.120 --> 00:22:24.200
  • IT OR NOT, STARTED OUT AS A SLIGHT OF HAND MAGICIAN WHEN I
  • 00:22:24.210 --> 00:22:27.140
  • WAS IN MY TEENS. AND BEGAN WORKING IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
  • 00:22:27.150 --> 00:22:30.230
  • IN PLACES IN, WHAT HAS NOW BECOME STREET MAGIC', LIKE
  • 00:22:30.240 --> 00:22:34.100
  • DAVID BLAINE. -COMBINING TRICKS, STUNTS AND HUMOR, BRAD
  • 00:22:34.110 --> 00:22:38.020
  • CREATED A COMEDY MAGIC SHOW THAT OFFERED HIM MORE OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:41.090
  • TO WORK THE COMEDY CIRCUIT. -IT REALLY WAS MORE ABOUT JUST
  • 00:22:41.100 --> 00:22:44.120
  • HAVING MORE OPTIONS FOR INCOME. BUT AS I BEGAN TO DO MORE AND
  • 00:22:44.130 --> 00:22:48.270
  • MORE COMEDY CLUBS, AND WORKING WITH ALL THESE COMEDIANS, I
  • 00:22:48.280 --> 00:22:52.190
  • FOUND MYSELF MORE ENTHRALLED BY STAND-UP COMEDY, BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:22:52.200 --> 00:22:57.260
  • JUST YOUR MIND, YOUR MOUTH, AND A MIC. THAT'S IT. NO PROPS. NO
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:23:02.030
  • TRICKS. NO GIMMICS. IT'S JUST YOU HAVING TO MAKE THIS WORK.
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:07.050
  • -CHOOSING TO BE A CLEAN COMIC, BRAD FOUND CREATIVE WAYS TO BE
  • 00:23:07.060 --> 00:23:09.250
  • FUNNY WITHOUT COMPROMISING HIS FAITH. HIS CAREER BEGAN TO GROW
  • 00:23:09.260 --> 00:23:13.120
  • WITH TELEVISION APPEARANCES ON HBO, CNN, AND COMEDY CENTRAL. IN
  • 00:23:13.130 --> 00:23:18.070
  • 2011, HE WAS A REGULAR SOCIAL COMMENTATOR ON FOX AND FRIENDS
  • 00:23:18.080 --> 00:23:22.120
  • EVERY MONDAY MORNING. ALONG WITH APPEARING IN NUMEROUS FILMS,
  • 00:23:22.130 --> 00:23:25.230
  • HE'S ALSO BEEN FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, AND
  • 00:23:25.240 --> 00:23:29.170
  • THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. HE HAD AN 8 PAGE PROFILE WRITTEN ABOUT
  • 00:23:29.180 --> 00:23:33.050
  • HIM AND HIS COMEDY IN THE NEW YORKER, WHERE HE WAS REFERRED TO
  • 00:23:33.060 --> 00:23:36.160
  • AS GOD'S COMIC. -THE THING THAT MAKES COMICS UNIQUE IS THAT MOST
  • 00:23:36.170 --> 00:23:43.100
  • PEOPLE LIVE LIFE WITHOUT PAYING ATTENTION. AS COMICS GO THROUGH
  • 00:23:43.110 --> 00:23:50.020
  • LIFE, IF I SHAKE YOUR HAND AND SAY NICE TO MEET YOU, YOU GO
  • 00:23:50.030 --> 00:23:53.270
  • NICE TO MEET YOU, AND THAT'S THE LAST YOU THINK OF IT. COMICS SAY
  • 00:23:53.280 --> 00:23:57.020
  • NICE TO MEET YOU, AND THEN WE GO, WHY DO WE SHAKE HANDS? IT'S
  • 00:23:57.030 --> 00:24:02.020
  • A WEIRD THING. HOW COME WE'RE HOLDING HANDS? ISN'T THAT ODD?
  • 00:24:02.030 --> 00:24:04.020
  • WHY WOULD WE DO THAT? THIS DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE, WHY
  • 00:24:04.030 --> 00:24:06.210
  • WOULD? HEY, YOU'RE A STRANGER AND I'M A STRANGER, I THINK WE
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:09.230
  • SHOULD HOLD HANDS. YES. AND THEN WE'LL MOVE THEM RHYTHMICALLY FOR
  • 00:24:09.240 --> 00:24:14.070
  • NO REASON WHATSOEVER. THIS MUST BE THE CAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE.
  • 00:24:14.080 --> 00:24:17.270
  • I MEAN, THAT'S HOW WE THINK. NOTHING JUST GOES THROUGH LIFE
  • 00:24:17.280 --> 00:24:22.040
  • WITHOUT US OBSERVING IT. WE ARE OBSERVERS OF CULTURE, OF LIFE,
  • 00:24:22.050 --> 00:24:27.030
  • OF IDIOSYNCRASIES. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MATTERED TO ME, AND
  • 00:24:27.040 --> 00:24:31.160
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK COMEDY HAS MOST IMPACTED IS IN
  • 00:24:31.170 --> 00:24:35.020
  • CULTURE, WE ALL HAVE FILTERS AS TO HOW WE SEE THE WORLD. AND WE
  • 00:24:35.030 --> 00:24:38.200
  • DON'T LET THINGS GET THROUGH OUR FILTERS IF WE DISAGREE. COMEDY
  • 00:24:38.210 --> 00:24:41.170
  • KIND OF BREAKS DOWN THOSE FILTERS. YOU DON'T REALLY EXPECT
  • 00:24:41.180 --> 00:24:44.120
  • ANYTHING FROM A COMEDIAN BECAUSE WE'RE IDIOTS. AND THEY'RE
  • 00:24:44.130 --> 00:24:48.140
  • LAUGHING AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, I SPEAK A LITTLE TRUTH AND
  • 00:24:48.150 --> 00:24:51.090
  • PEOPLE ARE, LIKE, OH, I NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT. GOD GIVES US A
  • 00:24:51.100 --> 00:24:54.110
  • LOT MORE OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY PUSH THE ENVELOPE OF CULTURE
  • 00:24:54.120 --> 00:24:59.100
  • WITHOUT COMPROMISING OUR FAITH. -AS AN AUTHOR, BRAD HAS WRITTEN
  • 00:24:59.110 --> 00:25:03.180
  • SEVERAL BOOKS AND HAS HAD MATERIAL PUBLISHED IN READER'S
  • 00:25:03.190 --> 00:25:06.200
  • DIGEST AND FOCUS ON THE FAMILY MAGAZINE. THEN AT THE HEIGHT OF
  • 00:25:06.210 --> 00:25:10.130
  • HIS SUCCESS, BRAD BEGAN TO EXPERIENCE SOME HARD TIMES. -I
  • 00:25:10.140 --> 00:25:13.230
  • WAS THE HOTTEST THING; WORKING AT PROMISE KEEPERS,
  • 00:25:13.240 --> 00:25:16.030
  • 10.000-15.000 MEN GOING AROUND DOING THIS THING. AND THROUGH
  • 00:25:16.040 --> 00:25:19.130
  • SOME CIRCUMSTANCES, SOME DARKNESS STARTED COMING INTO MY
  • 00:25:19.140 --> 00:25:24.000
  • LIFE AND SOME ISSUES STARTED HAPPENING WHERE I WAS FINDING
  • 00:25:24.010 --> 00:25:27.140
  • MYSELF NOT QUITE BUILDING THE MOMENTUM OF MY CAREER ANYMORE.
  • 00:25:27.150 --> 00:25:31.160
  • NOT QUITE CONTINUALLY MOVING FORWARD IN THAT SPACE AND
  • 00:25:31.170 --> 00:25:34.080
  • ACTUALLY GOT INTO SOME VERY DEEP DEPRESSION AND SOME DARKNESS.
  • 00:25:34.090 --> 00:25:37.210
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING. I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE
  • 00:25:37.220 --> 00:25:40.110
  • GOD WAS. AND AS A COMIC, THAT'S A LITTLE ROUGH, BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:25:40.120 --> 00:25:46.050
  • KNOW, YOU SEE LIFE WITH THE HUMOR IN IT. YOUR JOB, IN
  • 00:25:46.060 --> 00:25:48.210
  • CULTURE, IS TO SEE THE FUNNY WHERE NOBODY ELSE SEES IT.
  • 00:25:48.220 --> 00:25:52.200
  • THAT'S YOUR GIFT. AND IF YOU TAKE GOD'S GIFT AND YOU SPEND IT
  • 00:25:52.210 --> 00:25:57.140
  • ON YOURSELF, IT'S GOING TO GET DARK. BECAUSE GOD SAYS I
  • 00:25:57.150 --> 00:26:05.040
  • REDEEMED YOU, I SAVED YOUR SOUL, AND I GAVE YOU A GIFT THAT WAS
  • 00:26:05.050 --> 00:26:10.040
  • FOR MY BENEFIT TO SPEAK TO THE WORLD, AND YOU'RE SPENDING IT ON
  • 00:26:10.050 --> 00:26:14.280
  • YOU? AND THERE CAME A POINT IN MY LIFE WHEN I'D REACHED THE
  • 00:26:14.290 --> 00:26:18.250
  • BOTTOM WHERE I JUST LITERALLY SAID, ALRIGHT GOD, I'LL MINISTER
  • 00:26:18.260 --> 00:26:21.200
  • FOR YOU. I THOUGHT I WAS MINISTERING FOR HIM BECAUSE I
  • 00:26:21.210 --> 00:26:24.000
  • WAS DOING COMEDY IN CHURCHES, IN FRONT OF CHRISTIANS, SPEAKING OF
  • 00:26:24.010 --> 00:26:27.030
  • GODLY THINGS. BUT I WAS DRIVING MY CAREER TOWARDS OWNING THE
  • 00:26:27.040 --> 00:26:33.290
  • GIFT AND GETTING WHAT I COULD GET FROM IT AND THROWING GOD A
  • 00:26:34.000 --> 00:26:36.180
  • BONE ALONG THE WAY. IF I SAY ENOUGH JESUS STUFF ALONG THE
  • 00:26:36.190 --> 00:26:39.100
  • WAY, AND THROW OUT A BIBLE VERSE, THEN NOW I'M A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:26:39.110 --> 00:26:44.160
  • COMIC. RIGHT? NO. AND THE MOMENT I GAVE THAT GIFT BACK TO GOD,
  • 00:26:44.170 --> 00:26:50.180
  • GOD SAID I'VE WAITED FOR YOU TO COME BACK TO ME WITH THE GIFT,
  • 00:26:50.190 --> 00:26:57.240
  • SO THAT I COULD OPEN UP THE DOORS I NEEDED TO OPEN UP TO
  • 00:26:57.250 --> 00:27:00.100
  • TELL MY STORY, TO AFFECT THE CULTURE, WHICH IS YOUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:27:00.110 --> 00:27:04.170
  • -BRAD TOURS NATIONALLY ON A REGULAR BASIS, PERFORMING IN
  • 00:27:04.180 --> 00:27:07.140
  • CLUBS, CHURCHES, AND FOR CONSERVATIVE CAUSES. HE BELIEVES
  • 00:27:07.150 --> 00:27:10.230
  • THAT CHURCHES SHOULD EMBRACE MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO USE
  • 00:27:10.240 --> 00:27:13.130
  • LAUGHTER AS A CONNECTION TO REACH OTHERS FOR JESUS.
  • 00:27:13.140 --> 00:27:16.070
  • -THERE'S A SEASON FOR EVERYTHING. THERE'S A SEASON TO
  • 00:27:16.080 --> 00:27:20.100
  • BE HUMBLE. THERE'S A SEASON TO BE IN AWE OF GOD IN YOUR WORSHIP
  • 00:27:20.110 --> 00:27:25.070
  • EXPERIENCE, AND WE SHOULD. BUT THERE'S ALSO TIMES TO LAUGH AND
  • 00:27:25.080 --> 00:27:27.190
  • ENJOY THAT TOO. AND I HOPE THAT THE CHURCH EMBRACES MORE AND
  • 00:27:27.200 --> 00:27:32.130
  • MORE AND MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO BRING IN LAUGHTER INTO THE
  • 00:27:32.140 --> 00:27:36.210
  • CHURCH BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF BROKEN PEOPLE OUT THERE. AND
  • 00:27:36.220 --> 00:27:39.150
  • THIS IS A MEANS BY WHICH GOD CAN BEGIN TO HEAL THEM.

  • TAUGHT IN AMERICA. WE HAVE TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT AND WHEN WE
  • 00:29:37.010 --> 00:29:40.130
  • NEEDED HELP, WHEN WE NEEDED HELP, OUR NEIGHBORS AND OUR
  • 00:29:40.140 --> 00:29:43.150
  • CHURCH WOULD TAKE CARE OF US. NOT THE GOVERNMENT, THE

  • TO LIVE BY BIBLICAL MANDATES. THE FOUNDERS BELIEVED IN THE
  • 00:29:57.030 --> 00:30:00.030
  • JUDEO-CHRISTIAN ETHIC. BUT WE'VE GOTTEN RID OF THAT NOW. WE'VE
  • 00:30:00.040 --> 00:30:02.160
  • LOST THE IDEA OF WHO GOD IS. AND TRUSTING HIM, READING OUR BIBLES
  • 00:30:02.170 --> 00:30:06.290
  • AND BELIEVING THEY'RE TRUE. SEE, THAT'S THE THING, PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:30:07.000 --> 00:30:10.010
  • WANT TO BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE BECAUSE IT TELLS THEM THINGS
  • 00:30:10.020 --> 00:30:11.250
  • THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR. THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR. I'M TELLING
  • 00:30:11.260 --> 00:30:17.000
  • YOU, THERE ARE THINGS I'VE READ ABOUT THAT I'M GOING TO HAVE TO
  • 00:30:17.010 --> 00:30:19.050
  • LET YOU IN ON RIGHT NOW. I'M SORRY. MAY NOT BE POLITICALLY
  • 00:30:19.060 --> 00:30:21.210
  • CORRECT BUT THEN AGAIN, I WANT TO WATCH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
  • 00:30:21.220 --> 00:30:24.010
  • DIE IN MY LIFETIME. [APPLAUSE] BUT FIRST, I WANT TO WATCH IT
  • 00:30:24.020 --> 00:30:31.070
  • SUFFER. OKAY? [LAUGHTER] BUT WHAT AM I SAYING ABOUT? IF YOU
  • 00:30:31.080 --> 00:30:36.030
  • READ ABOUT GOD, YOU FIND OUT WHO HE IS BECAUSE HE TELLS US
  • 00:30:36.040 --> 00:30:38.120
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM. SO THERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:30:38.130 --> 00:30:40.160
  • HAVE TO KNOW WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. ARE YOU READY? HERE'S
  • 00:30:40.170 --> 00:30:43.060
  • WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: GOD IS A GUY. [LAUGHTER] ALRIGHT? LADIES
  • 00:30:43.070 --> 00:30:50.060
  • ARE LAUGHING. ALL THE MEN ARE GOING, HONEY, AM I GOING TO
  • 00:30:50.070 --> 00:30:52.140
  • LAUGH TOO? [LAUGHTER] CAN I LAUGH AT THAT ONE? WIVES ARE
  • 00:30:52.150 --> 00:30:56.250
  • GIVING ALL THAT ELBOW. EXCEPT FOR ALL THE MEN MARRIED OVER 30
  • 00:30:56.260 --> 00:31:01.170
  • YEARS, THEY'VE GOT A CALLOUS, THEY DON'T EVEN FEEL THAT
  • 00:31:01.180 --> 00:31:03.140
  • ANYMORE. [LAUGHTER] GOD IS A GUY. BUT HOW DO WE KNOW? YOU
  • 00:31:03.150 --> 00:31:09.050
  • HAVE TO STUDY THE SCRIPTURES. FOR ONE THING, HE ALWAYS REFERS
  • 00:31:09.060 --> 00:31:11.280
  • TO HIMSELF AS, FATHER'! AND BACK IN HIS TIME FATHER' WAS
  • 00:31:11.290 --> 00:31:17.240
  • CONSIDERED A DUDE. [LAUGHTER] I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS GOING TO
  • 00:31:17.250 --> 00:31:24.030
  • GET COMPLICATED. [APPLAUSE] HOW ELSE WE KNOW GOD'S A GUY?
  • 00:31:24.040 --> 00:31:30.190
  • BECAUSE EVERYTHING HE INVENTED HE SAID WAS GOOD. AND THIS IS
  • 00:31:30.200 --> 00:31:36.230
  • BEFORE DUCT TAPE, I MIGHT ADD. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IF GOD HAS
  • 00:31:36.240 --> 00:31:40.110
  • USED DUCT TAPE, HE WOULD HAVE USED A REAL DUCK. HE'S GOD!
  • 00:31:40.120 --> 00:31:42.210
  • [LAUGHTER] HOW ELSE DO WE KNOW GOD'S A GUY? BECAUSE HE WORKED
  • 00:31:42.220 --> 00:31:47.020
  • HARD FOR 6 DAYS AND THEN TOOK A NAP! ON SUNDAY! SO HE COULD
  • 00:31:47.030 --> 00:31:52.120
  • WATCH THE GAME. AND LASTLY, HOW DO I KNOW BEYOND A SHADOW OF A
  • 00:31:52.130 --> 00:31:58.010
  • DOUBT THAT GOD ALMIGHTY IS A GUY? BECAUSE HE INVENTED WOMEN!
  • 00:31:58.020 --> 00:32:04.230
  • [APPLAUSE] I MOVED HERE A FEW YEARS AGO BECAUSE IT'S SO
  • 00:32:04.240 --> 00:32:13.180
  • SPECIAL AND I THINK THAT GOD MADE US MALE AND FEMALE FOR
  • 00:32:13.190 --> 00:32:15.280
  • CERTAIN REASONS. FOR EXAMPLE, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE AWARE OF
  • 00:32:15.290 --> 00:32:18.100
  • THIS, BUT I THINK SOME HOLIDAYS ARE RE GENDER SPECIFIC; LIKE,
  • 00:32:18.110 --> 00:32:22.040
  • THE 4TH OF JULY. 4TH OF JULY, THAT'S A GUY HOLIDAY! IT'S THE

  • ONE DAY A YEAR WE'RE EXPECTED TO BLOW SOMETHING UP! [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:32:27.260 --> 00:32:34.150
  • AND I TELL YOU THAT BECAUSE I MOVED FROM CALIFORNIA, THE MOST
  • 00:32:34.160 --> 00:32:37.090
  • WUSSIFIED STATE IN THE UNITED STINKIN' STATES OF AMERICA. I

  • DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED TO THOSE PEOPLE. IT WAS
  • 00:32:41.010 --> 00:32:43.090
  • EMBARRASSING TO DO THE 4TH IN CALIFORNIA BECAUSE THEY'RE SO
  • 00:32:43.100 --> 00:32:46.120
  • POLITICALLY CORRECT. LET'S SHOOT FIREWORKS BUT FIRST, GET 55 FEET

  • BDS MOVEMENT AGAINST ISRAEL. BOYCOTT THIS WHERE I DEFEND
  • 00:35:01.050 --> 00:35:04.260
  • ISRAEL AGAINST THE BDS MOVEMENT SO IT'S KIND OF COMEDIC BUT IT'S
  • 00:35:04.270 --> 00:35:08.080
  • POLITICAL BECAUSE I DEFEND ISRAEL AS A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:35:08.090 --> 00:35:10.260
  • [APPLAUSE] -WHAT IS BDS? -BDS IS BOYCOTT, DIVEST, AND
  • 00:35:10.270 --> 00:35:16.020
  • SANCTIONS. SO REALLY IT'S GROUPS OF MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRIES THAT
  • 00:35:16.030 --> 00:35:21.080
  • BASICALLY ARE CLAIMING THAT THEY ARE AN APARTHEID STATE AND
  • 00:35:21.090 --> 00:35:24.030
  • THEY'RE JUST ATTACKING ISRAEL BECAUSE THEY'RE JEWS AND IT'S
  • 00:35:24.040 --> 00:35:26.240
  • ANTI-SEMITISM. BUT AS AN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN, MY
  • 00:35:26.250 --> 00:35:30.020
  • OBLIGATION IS TO DEFEND ISRAEL AND THAT'S, YOU KNOW, THEIR
  • 00:35:30.030 --> 00:35:35.000

  • 00:35:39.200 --> 00:35:42.210
  • AS YOU SAW IN THAT OPENING SEGMENT, GOD HAS REALLY
  • 00:35:42.220 --> 00:35:48.040
  • TRANSITIONED MY COMEDY TO WHERE I WILL ALWAYS BE A COMEDIAN, I
  • 00:35:48.050 --> 00:35:51.260
  • GUESS, BECAUSE THAT'S THE FLAVOR HE MADE MY PERSONALITY, BUT I'VE
  • 00:35:51.270 --> 00:35:55.020
  • ALSO WANTED TO ADD MORE TO IT. I SEE SO MANY YOUNGER KIDS,
  • 00:35:55.030 --> 00:35:58.080
  • MILLENNIALS WALKING AWAY FROM THE FAITH, AND NEW ATHEISM IS SO
  • 00:35:58.090 --> 00:36:01.030
  • POWERFUL, -RIGHT, RIGHT. -MATERIALISM, POST MODERISM;
  • 00:36:01.040 --> 00:36:03.150
  • AND I CREATED A SHOW CALLED THE GOD EXPERIENCE' WHERE I ACTUALLY
  • 00:36:03.160 --> 00:36:06.220
  • HAVE COMBINED, AS YOU SAW MY OLD MAGIC BACK IN THE DAY, AS ALMOST
  • 00:36:06.230 --> 00:36:11.190

  • 00:36:11.200 --> 00:36:16.080
  • ACTUALLY SHOWING THE PROOFS OF GOD, BUT I'M USING VISUAL AND
  • 00:36:16.090 --> 00:36:20.070
  • SLIGHT OF HAND IDEAS TO PROVE PHILOSOPHICALLY AND
  • 00:36:20.080 --> 00:36:22.240
  • APOLOGETICALLY THAT GOD ALMIGHTY EXISTS. I CALL IT THE GOD
  • 00:36:22.250 --> 00:36:25.190

  • BY. [LAUGHTER] -BUT YEAH, NO, IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME TO USE
  • 00:36:55.050 --> 00:37:00.280
  • COMEDY, LIKE I SAID, TO BREAK DOWN THE FILTERS AND THE
  • 00:37:00.290 --> 00:37:04.100
  • PRE-SUPPOSITIONS, BUT THEN GIVE PEOPLE TRUTH BECAUSE IN THIS
  • 00:37:04.110 --> 00:37:07.180
  • COUNTRY, NOW-A-DAYS, WE'VE LOST THE ABILITY TO LISTEN TO ANYBODY
  • 00:37:07.190 --> 00:37:11.160
  • ELSE. WE HAVE ONE IDEA AND WE DON'T EVEN GIVE A LISTEN TO THE
  • 00:37:11.170 --> 00:37:14.220
  • OTHER SIDE. AND EVEN IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THE OTHER SIDE, IF
  • 00:37:14.230 --> 00:37:17.060
  • YOU DON'T GIVE THEM THE DIGNITY TO SPEAK, YOU CAN'T ANSWER THEM
  • 00:37:17.070 --> 00:37:20.140
  • PROPERLY. AND THEY'RE NOT EVEN GOING TO ENGAGE YOU BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:37:20.150 --> 00:37:23.210
  • HAVEN'T GIVEN THEM CIVILITY. AND WE'VE LOST THAT IN AMERICA.
  • 00:37:23.220 --> 00:37:27.140
  • WELL, IF ANYBODY SHOULD BE THE VANGUARDS OF CIVILITY, TRUTH,
  • 00:37:27.150 --> 00:37:31.200
  • AND KINDNESS, WITHOUT COMPROMISE, IT'S CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:37:31.210 --> 00:37:35.020

  • CHURCH! [APPLAUSE] BRAD, THANK YOU! -MY PLEASURE! -HEY, WE'VE

  • STARTED IN COMEDY CLUBS RIGHT AFTER GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE.
  • 00:38:11.000 --> 00:38:14.090
  • GETTING ADVICE FROM HEADLINERS ON HOW TO FURTHER HIS CAREER,
  • 00:38:14.100 --> 00:38:17.210
  • THE TEXAS NATIVE WAS ENCOURAGED TO MOVE TO LOS ANGELES. -I GOT
  • 00:38:17.220 --> 00:38:21.100
  • WAY OVERWHELMED AND SURPRISED WITH WHAT THE REAL WORLD OF
  • 00:38:21.110 --> 00:38:25.260
  • COMEDY IS. AND THE THING THAT I LEARNED THE MOST IS THAT YOU
  • 00:38:25.270 --> 00:38:28.270
  • HAVE TO BE SPECIFIC IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE IT IN L.A. BECAUSE
  • 00:38:28.280 --> 00:38:33.150
  • THERE ARE 9.000 COMICS ALL BASICALLY TALKING ABOUT THE SAME
  • 00:38:33.160 --> 00:38:36.120
  • THING. AND SO THE ONE THING THAT I KNEW BETTER THAN MOST OF THE
  • 00:38:36.130 --> 00:38:39.140
  • COMICS WAS THE BIBLE, AND GOD, AND WHAT IT MEANT TO HAVE A
  • 00:38:39.150 --> 00:38:43.150
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. SO I BEGAN TO START TALKING MORE
  • 00:38:43.160 --> 00:38:46.290
  • ABOUT MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD ON STAGE AND IT BEGAN TO
  • 00:38:47.000 --> 00:38:50.220
  • SEPARATE ME. AND THE WHOLE BEAUTY OF STAND-UP COMEDY IS
  • 00:38:50.230 --> 00:38:53.260
  • THAT YOU GET TO TELL YOUR POINT OF VIEW. YOU DON'T TELL PEOPLE
  • 00:38:53.270 --> 00:38:56.290
  • WHAT'S RIGHT OR WRONG FOR THEM. YOU TELL PEOPLE WHAT'S RIGHT OR
  • 00:38:57.000 --> 00:38:59.180
  • WRONG FOR YOU. -AS ONE OF THE SUPERSTARS OF CLEAN, CHRISTIAN

  • SUCCESS, BONE IS NO STRANGER TO GOING THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES,
  • 00:40:15.220 --> 00:40:19.150
  • AND BELIEVES THAT LAUGHTER IS A GOOD MEDICINE. FROM HIS OWN
  • 00:40:19.160 --> 00:40:23.110
  • FAMILY'S SITUATIONS, HE DRAWS ON HUMOR TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:40:23.120 --> 00:40:25.170
  • DISCOURAGEMENT, AND TO LOOK AT LIFE FROM A DIFFERENT
  • 00:40:25.180 --> 00:40:28.010
  • PERSPECTIVE. -SO THE THING ABOUT BEING A STAND-UP COMIC IS
  • 00:40:28.020 --> 00:40:31.010
  • EVERYBODY IS ALWAYS ASSUMING YOU'RE HAPPY, GO-LUCKY ALL THE

  • PEOPLE YOU'LL EVER MEET OFF STAGE. BUT I TRULY BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:40:38.160 --> 00:40:44.090
  • THERE'S HEALING POWER IN LAUGHTER. MY MOM, SHE PASSED
  • 00:40:44.100 --> 00:40:51.150
  • SEPTEMBER 2015, AND SHE STRUGGLED WITH DIABETES.
  • 00:40:51.160 --> 00:40:56.080
  • DIABETES WAS, I MEAN, IT RUNS THROUGH OUR FAMILY. AND SHE
  • 00:40:56.090 --> 00:41:00.080
  • WOULD CALL ME AND TELL ME I'M DOING REALLY BAD TODAY; MY
  • 00:41:00.090 --> 00:41:04.260
  • SPIRITS ARE LOW, I JUST DON'T WANT TO, I'M ABOUT TO EAT THIS
  • 00:41:04.270 --> 00:41:08.240
  • CAKE. AND SHE WOULD CALL ME BECAUSE SHE KNEW SOME KIND OF
  • 00:41:08.250 --> 00:41:13.080
  • WAY, I COULD TALK HER OFF THE LEDGE, GET HER TO LAUGHING AND
  • 00:41:13.090 --> 00:41:18.040
  • SHE WOULD BE IN A BETTER PLACE MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. AND
  • 00:41:18.050 --> 00:41:21.150
  • SOME OF MY DIABETIC JOKES COME FROM ME HAVING TO TALK SO BAD TO
  • 00:41:21.160 --> 00:41:26.090
  • HER THAT SHE COULDN'T HELP BUT LAUGH. I WAS LIKE, MAMA, GO ON

  • AND EAT THE CAKE. IF YOU WANT TO MISS YOUR FOOT, GO AHEAD ON. YOU
  • 00:41:29.180 --> 00:41:32.260
  • DON'T NEED YOUR FOOT NO MORE ANYWAY, MAMA. YOU DON'T EVER USE
  • 00:41:32.270 --> 00:41:35.010
  • IT. SO EAT THE CAKE. CUT THE FOOT. JUST GO TO THE DOCTOR
  • 00:41:35.020 --> 00:41:39.000
  • BAKERY. THEY DON'T EVEN MAKE EM, MAMA, BUT GO TO THE DOCTOR
  • 00:41:39.010 --> 00:41:41.240
  • BAKERY. AND SHE WOULD START LAUGHING. NO, THEY DON'T MAKE NO
  • 00:41:41.250 --> 00:41:46.020
  • DOCTOR BAKERY. I'M, LIKE, BUT YOU GO MAKE THEM MAKE ONE CAUSE

  • YOU DON'T WANNA ACT LIKE, AND I WOULD WATCH HER CHANGE FROM

  • BEING DEPRESSED AND SAD TO YOU HAVE MADE IT SO RIDICULOUS, AND
  • 00:41:54.290 --> 00:42:01.080
  • THAT'S PART OF WHAT COMEDY IS, IS TO TAKE A TRUTH, MAKE IT SO
  • 00:42:01.090 --> 00:42:04.090
