Christian Comedy Duo The Skit Guys Hit a Funny Bone

Christian Comedy Duo The Skit Guys Hit a Funny Bone

By Caroline Cox, January 10, 2017

Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, known as The Skit Guys, have been best friends for decades, but their relationship didn’t start out so sunny. In fact, it began when Woodard stole James’s girlfriend. “I didn’t like him because he was a jock, and he didn’t like me because I stole his girl,” Woodard says. “Later, that girl got smart and dumped me. At that point, Eddie and I were free to become friends, and we did.” After regularly attending church together and doing skits every Wednesday for their youth group, the duo began traveling around rural Oklahoma performing at small churches and getting paid in chicken dinners.

Fast-forward to today, and the dynamic duo is running a successful ministry that allows them to touch audiences all over the country through their faith-based comedy videos, podcasts and live performances. “Whether it’s meeting someone at one of our live shows, the emails we receive or a comment on social media,” says James, “knowing that God uses what we do to help others is incredibly inspiring.”

The Skit Guys are 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!
