They say laughter is medicinal for the soul. One of the most difficult tasks we place on pastors and youth pastors today is to bring in a comedian who will entertain the entire church without the fear of responding to weeks of hate mail. God has blessed David Dean with the gift of making people laugh on a full-time basis for over 22 years. Comedy that is family-friendly, fast paced and most important: clean. Not corny, but clean.
David honed his talent in the late ’80s at the famous Second City School of Improvisational Comedy in Chicago (yes, he was a believer!). It was there where he was taught to think quick on his feet and learn to play off the audience. Eventually, God began opening doors throughout the Chicagoland area for David to come and share his humor at faith-based events. Hosts not only wanted the laughter, they wanted David to talk about his walk with Christ. That chapter in his life taught him comedy is simply a platform for talking about Jesus.
David is a frequent performer, friend, and trusted opening act for some of today’s biggest known clean comedians and speakers. Ken Davis, Chonda Pierce, Mark Gungor, and more call on him to open for many of their shows. David has worked with Fireproof Ministries for years and has opened for many Porn & Pancakes events as well as Parents’ Events.
