    I saw it (online) and thought it was pretty good. I didn’t laugh super hard, but not because I was offended by any of it I just think it could’ve been a bit better. I think he had some good solid jokes in there, and it seems they come from real life experience.

    Jacob – I felt the same way! I thought it was clever, but maybe I just know too much about youth ministry so wanted to punch it up a bit!

    Still fun to see youth workers getting some time in a comedy routine. JG

    I agree with you guys…I thought it could have been funnier. But he did pretty good.

    I was really hoping he was gonna say “you have no cell service, don’t worry, just log on to our unprotected mediocre guest wifi.”
