"Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness"

Finding clean comedy can be difficult. So, I'm here to help.

"Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness"

Finding good, clean comedy is honestly very difficult. Comedians that don't make disgusting jokes and use vulgar language are pretty rare. Here are my top choices for whenever you need a laugh, whether you are with your kids or your parents, without blushing at the content:

Chonda Pierce: A lot of mothers love Chonda Pierce because she is so relatable. She makes light of real life situations for every age. She also has a great testimony. I love her jokes about her kids, her career, and her late husband.

Tim Hawkins: If you have never heard of Tim Hawkins, you need to go to YouTube now. Seriously. I'll wait.... OK, now you see what I mean. He is stinking hysterical. He is a fellow homeschooler, so I automatically love him just for that. Then, he has a slight obsession with Chick-Fil-A, which I can appreciate. Honestly, Chonda Pierce reminds me of my mom, and Tim Hawkins reminds me of my dad. That's probably another reason I enjoy them so much. :)

Studio C: Studio C is basically the clean version of Saturday Night Live. This group of 10 comedians met during their college years at BYU in Utah. They started out as Divine Comedy, which is also extremely funny, but contains other actors besides the cast of Studio C. All the cast members are Mormon, so all their comedy is clean.

There are some things you need to know before you watch Studio C:

1. Whitney Call and Stephen Meek are married.

2. "Mattory" is the ship name for cast members Mallory Everton and Matt Meese. Don't try and fight it; you will want it too. Just accept the fact that you will jump on the Mattory train too.

3. Like I said, they are Mormon. They generally avoid the subject of religion, but when they do bring it in, they do not overly push their beliefs.

You're probably wondering why I'm so passionate about clean comedy. Well, I'm a firm believer in Garbage In, Garbage Out. In Galatians 6:7, Paul says that a man reaps what he sows. I believe that if I fill my mind with disgusting things, like what I might hear in mainstream comedy acts, my mind will start thinking about things like that more and more. However, if I watch things that are clean, I will be more likely to think about things that are clean. So, I will forever laugh when Chonda Pierce makes a joke about her husband's snoring, Tim Hawkins sings about his Pretty Pink Tractor, or when I watch Studio C's "Aw Yeah" sketch.

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect
-Romans 12:1-2
