Episode 22. John Crist tells me about his comic roots – making the announcements at church. He also talks about why he decided to pursue his dream job, how being the son of a pastor made him a better comic, and the benefits of having a clean show. And how he believes “if you have a gift and you’re not using it, you’re robbing people.”
“Everybody is put on this planet for a reason, everybody has gifts and callings inside of them that make them come alive.”
