Christian Comedy Movies
Christian comedy movies sound like a contradiction in terms to many people, probably because religion is a very serious topic. But the seriousness only highlights the fact that it is rife with opportunities for humor. But just because something is funny, that does not mean it cannot be serious as well. The truth can be presented with jokes in it.
The great Christian writer and thinker, G. K. Chesterton, once wrote in response to a professional criticism he had received that, “Mr. McCabe thinks that I am not serious but only funny because Mr. McCabe thinks that funny is the opposite of serious. Funny is the opposite of not funny and of nothing else. The question of whether a man expresses himself in a grotesque or laughable phraseology or in a stately and restrained phraseology is not a question of motive or of moral state; it is a question of instinctive language and self-expression. Whether a man chooses to tell the truth in long sentences or short jokes is a problem analogous to whether he chooses to tell the truth in French or German. Whether a man preaches his gospel grotesquely or gravely is merely like the question of whether he preaches it in prose or verse.”

What does this mean practically for us in the context of religious comedy movies? For a start, the best religious comedy movies will show in a different light what it means to have a relationship with God or each other as the Church. There is a funny side to spirituality, which anyone who has been consciously spiritual for any amount of time will tell you. Just as teaching doesn’t have to be limited to the pulpit, comedy doesn’t also have to be limited to pastors’ jokes.

To that end, missionally, that means crafting captivating stories of the Kingdom and its people.

The message of the Gospel of the Kingdom is the greatest story ever told, and it’s time to get this message out through the stories and lives of God’s people, and into the stories and lives of God’s people. Everyone is binge-watching something these days, and discussing these shows online and in person. We desire to create avenues for healthy binge-watching and to add positively to those discussions in the form of compelling, entertaining, and captivating TV. Our society has never before consumes as much content as now, and media has become one of the most potent sources of influence. Studies have shown that the average American spends a quarter of their life streaming content via their phone, TV, or computer. We may not be able to change the amount of time people watch TV, but we can provide a healthy alternative that will feed their soul and inspire them to engage in the values of God’s Kingdom. Faith-based content doesn’t have to mean hours of sermons and messages. It can mean fun—and funny—movies and shows that appeal to wider ranges of people and people groups.

AWKNG TV was birthed out of a vision and mandate that the Lord gave to our President and CEO, Pastors Stovall and Kerri Weems, respectively. This vision included a decree to change how society consumed media, particularly visual media. It had a picture of what it could look like for the Kingdom to take its place in that same media and finally contained an essential strategy around using media as a tool to proclaim the gospel to all peoples in our time.
After its inception in 2020, our leadership team assembled, and our journey began. With an incredible staff of producers, directors, writers, editors, and designers, show ideas were birthed, sets were built, and production commenced. Right, AWKNG TV is available to stream Christian, bible-based, theologically sound content into homes worldwide, for free and for a paid subscription fee.
