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.

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 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.
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!
Glad we have it on DVD, as then we can rewatch favorite segments until we know them as well as the comics do!
Taylor Mason and Michael Jr. give first rate performances. Joe Wong, new to the series, was incredible. Rex Havens and Isaac Witty provided new material for my sons to quote to friends. But by far, Dana Daniels and his parrot act stole this show. Combining magic and humor in a new twist - funny, funny stuff!
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.

Good clean fun! This is comedy you can watch with your family. Often watching some HBO comedy specials that were just too mature even for me, this was a nice refreshing change. Read morePublished 18 months ago by ZenWoman
