Review

Great fun for the whole family. The phenomenon began back in 2006 when producers Hunt Lowry and Jonathan Bock took a step of faith and brought forth the proposition that the world was ready for comedy of, by, and for Christians. Other comedy concerts had entered the video arena, mostly to lie dormant on video store shelves. Thou Shalt Laugh, aided by a proper distribution campaign, sparked an interest that has generated more sales than any other Christian comedy DVD. In an era when laughs are so often mined from anatomical and scatological riffs, and the grosser the comedy, the bigger the box office grosses, here came a refreshing and, I m glad to add, funny alternative. Previous installments in the comic series had Patricia Heaton, Tim Conway, and Sinbad as masters of ceremony. Part 4 is hosted by John Tesh. Tesh, the blondest of the hosts, introduces Dana Daniels, Rex Havens, Taylor Mason, Michael Jr., Isaac Witty and Joe Wong. Focusing on the human condition, the routines spotlight marriage, the difference between men and women, the trouble with youth, our culture and racism. There s a magician, a puppeteer and even a boogie-woogie-playing pianist. Lively, witty and perceptive, each comedian arouses smiles, giggles and even guffaws. As he did in T. S. L. 1, 2, and 3, Taylor Mason closes the show. With his use of puppets and ventriloquism, Mr. Taylor reaches audiences of all ages. His awards range from winning the $100,000 Star Search grand prize in 1991 to an Emmy for his TV pilot Bananas. In my opinion, he s one of the sharpest funnymen around. In this installment of the franchise, he brings down the house with some incredible piano playing, as well as featuring his favorite alter ego, Romeo, who always seems to find a pretty girl in the audience whom he wishes to empress. It s a pleasure to be reminded once again that comedy can be used to edify as well as entertain. And that wit is always more satisfying than the I-can t believe-I-just saw-that shock factor. Thou Shalt Laugh 4 will be available November 3, 2009 and makes a perfect Christmas stocking stuffer for teens and adults. --Phil Boatwright - Preview On Line

THOU SHALT LAUGH 4 Clean Humor Does Exist Written by Paula K. Parker I must have been born in the wrong era. I don t find stand up comedy with bathroom, insulting, or off-colored jokes to be funny. I began to think that I wasn t going to find many more comedians to enjoy...until Thou Shalt Laugh appeared on the market. This series of DVDs with Christian comedians telling clean and hilarious jokes proved me wrong. Releasing on November 3, Thou Shalt Laugh 4 follows in the steps of the first three shows. This latest installment of the best-selling Christian comedy DVD series is hosted by multi-talented and Emmy award winning family man John Tesh and showcases fan favorites and returning comedians Taylor Mason and Michael Jr. along with unforgettable performances from newcomers Dana Daniels, Isaac Witty, Rex Havens and Joe Wong. Rex Havens opened with some humorous comments on the names cars; proving that comedians can find humor in the weirdest places. His comments on weddings, wedding rings and women s shoes will have men and women laughing and nodding in agreement. Joe Wong, a naturalized citizen from China, makes his debut on Thou Shalt Laugh, uses his background to poke fun at himself, ethnicity, and politics; his story of becoming a naturalized citizen was comical. Those who have been around a while (okay, we old people ) might remember Christian comedy team John and Vicki-Jo Witty. Their son Isaac s appearance on Thou Shalt Laugh 4 proves that some things are inherited. Only a Witty could find something funny in carrot cake. Michael Jr. observations on his early life as a Christian especially trying to pray in church and people who are oversaved were sidesplitting. Magicians are becoming quite common among Christian entertainers; Dana Daniels set, however, had something no other magician Christian or secular has; Luigi, a psychic parrot. His set was a roller coaster of corny humor and comical improv, thrown in with some surprising magic tricks. Fans of the Thou Shalt Laugh series will be excited to know that Taylor Mason is once again part of the lineup. Hilarious is too weak a word to describe Mason. A world-class ventriloquist, he brings back his friends Paco the Pig and Romeo the cool girl-chasing dude. Mason, a gifted musician in his own right, performs an amazing duet with John Tesh. Filmed before a live audience at Corpus Christi's mega-church Bay Area Fellowship, Thou Shalt Laugh 4 is good clean fun that everyone - no matter what era they re from - can enjoy. --Written by Paula K.

Self-depreciation can be funny but this was just difficult to watch without feeling sorry for him.

I had the distinct pleasure of seeing an advance copy of THOU SHALT LAUGH 4 that was sent to Christian retailers all over the country. Let me tell you - it's the best one yet. From beginning to end, the comedians are dazzling. Normally on previous TSL's the comedians are hit or miss, but not on #4. They're all great.

This latest version is hosted by John Tesh. Tesh, while definitely not a comedian, is a pro and an engaging host who keeps the show moving along nicely. But on a stand-up comedy DVD, I'm looking for nothing but funny from the comedians. And on that score, Thou Shalt Laugh 4 delivers in spades.

I was at the taping for this DVD in Corpus Christi TX They moved some of the comedians around for the DVD, but they are all here. I had just seen two of the comedians, Joe Wong and Isaac Witty, on Letterman a month or two ago. I was interested in if they would change their set much, and this DVD has the best of their Letterman routines plus lots of new material. I love Isaac Witty's delivery - he makes you laugh even when he is not talking! Wong has an unusual style - kind of like Steven Wright - long pauses where he spends time looking at the audience after a joke. Rex Havens had great observational humor with unbelievably funny segments about weddings. Taylor Mason was funny as usual - but his bit on the piano with John Tesh was classic. Michael Jr. was the most overtly Christian of all the comedians. But his descriptions of "oversaved" and "creepy" Christians was funny and uncomfortably too close for comfort. Finally, the funniest for me was Dana Daniels. I had seen some of his clips on You Tube the last couple of years and I was looking forward to his set. He didn't disappoint! His set seems to have a lot of improv as he keeps the same performance structure as the You Tube clips - the same but completely different as he reacts to his co-star, Luigi the parrot and audience members. He was worth the price of admission himself.

All this is held together professionally by John Tesh, who is humorous but his main job is get the real comedians on and off.

Overall, this is the best DVD in the series. While the rest of the series had some real highlights, this entire DVD is consistently drop on your knees hilarious. Thou Shalt Laugh #3 was a little edgier (some in my group think too much so), but this is funnier and "cleaner". I can't think of a better gift for yourself or any family member.

This is the first version of TSL I've had the pleasure of watching and it delivers! I was not familiar with most of the comedians, so it was a pleasure to be introduced to them. John Tesh does a great job of holding things together and his 'bits' are pretty funny, but the real work comes from the individual comedians. Each has his own style and they are varied enough to hold your interest and all are funny in their own right. Taylor Mason shows how incredibly diverse a talent he is, going from stand-up to ventriloquism to piano. Isaac Witty's Bible Map bit is very funny and Michael Jr's bit on 'overly Christians' is very funny. However, I think the funniest performer on the DVD is Dana Daniels. I've seen Dana in the past and in my opinion is one of the funniest comedians in the business. As you might guess by the title and cover, this is a Christian-based show and as a result, there are several references to Christianity, but it also means that you can show it to any group without worrying that the language or content will offend. I highly recommend this video.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My husband and I love great comedy. There is NOTHING like having a "good laugh"!!!!

Unfortunately, much of the comedy out there (that's actually funny) is definitely more rated "R" than "PG". We have honestly grown tired of crass and "over the top" humor that borders on offensive. Thou Shalt Laugh 4 was such a welcome change of pace for us.

It's really funny....something that I was afraid "Christian humor" couldn't pull off. The comedians talk of everyday life stuff. Family dynamics, male/female dynamics, and many of other relatable topics. We enjoyed every minute and I don't hesitate to recommend it!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was the first volume of "Thou Shalt Laugh" that I have seen, but I was impressed enough by positive reviews of the previous volumes to give it a shot. I enjoy stand-up comedy of all kinds, and I was intrigued by the promise of clean "Christian comedy" offered by this series. This 90-minute program was shot live at a Texas church, so the production values are decent but not spectacular.

As promised, the comedy was fit for the entire family. My wife was anticipating Christian-themed acts, but only Michael, Jr. delivered Bible-inspired humor. The acts were pleasantly varied, with a musician and ventriloquist/magician. Unfortunately, the acts were largely hit or miss. Joe Wong and Isaac Witty were simply not funny in my opinion, and the others were good but none left me rolling in the aisle. John Tesh, meanwhile, was an affable host and an awkward, unfunny comedian as he demonstrated throughout. Although teasing the audience with the possibility that he might perform a musical number, Tesh was largely absent during the program and, in the end, served little purpose other than name recognition for the box.

If you are a fan of the series, you will probably get this volume regardless. If you are new to the series, like me, you might want to start with an earlier volume, if all of those positive reviews are to be believed.
