Glorious Guffaws With Comedienne Joy

By Caroline Cox, December 2, 2016

Comedienne Joy sometimes refers to herself as the Queen of Clean, but it’s not because she enjoys housework. As a Christian comedian, she entertains audiences with her clean jokes.

For Birmingham, Alabama-based Comedienne Joy (as Cassandra King is known), her faith-based comedy journey started from a thought that if she could make people laugh without being vulgar, she could represent God on and off stage. “I began to tell friends from various churches I was a Christian comedienne,” she explains, “and it took off from there.”

After performing at her first event, King got business cards made and then began distributing them to various churches, putting ads in Christian magazines and telling friends about her newfound passion.

King finds humor through observations in her daily life, but her mother, who passed away in 2014, also continuously inspires her. “I realized shortly after her funeral that she was gone but the world was still going on,” says King. “I said, ‘I’m going to live a life without regrets because I only have one shot on this side of heaven.’”

Comedienne Joy is one of five comedy acts we’ve rounded up that may be a great fit for faith-based planners looking to book entertainment. We’ll continue to share them with you over the next month, so stay tuned!
