Saenger Theatre - New Orleans
Funny man John Crist brings you his second Immature thoughts tour! John Crist at Saenger Theatre – New Orleans on Thursday 7th May 2020, With more than one billion video views, more than four million online followers, and sold-out tours from coast to coast, John Crist is one of today’s fastest-rising stand-up comics.
Whether it’s “Church Hunters,” “Celebrity Pastor Fantasy Draft,” or “Virtual Reality Church,” Crist’s humor sometimes focuses on the nuances of the local church. Of the church, Crist says, “Man, I love the local church. Growing up serving at my dad’s church, I know the effect that a healthy, vibrant church can have on the community. If I ever come across as critical, it’s because I love the church and I wish for so much more from it. I grew up in the deep south, my dad is a pastor, and I was the third of eight homeschooled children. My first job was at Chick-fil-A. Coming from a background like that, how do you NOT write jokes?!”
