Based on her newest book, Preaching Punchlines: The Ten Commandments of Comedy, Susan Sparks brings two decades of experience as a preacher and a professional stand-up to mine the strategies comedians have employed for years. The art of stand-up comedy is not just about jokes; it’s about developing intimacy, honesty, and trust—three dynamics that must be present before any sermon is truly heard. Learn about this and other insights on this webinar.
A trial lawyer turned stand-up comedian and Baptist preacher, Susan Sparks is America’s only female comedian with a pulpit. She is the senior pastor of the historic Madison Avenue Baptist Church in New York City.
