Join Ashley Wilcox as she explores the many ways preachers can learn from stand-up comics. Preachers have a lot to learn from stand-up comics. These comics are masters of form and storytelling. And comics are doing innovative work in sharing their comedy online. In this conference, Ashley M. Wilcox will use video clips from stand-up routines to draw parallels between comedy and preaching. Your preaching doesn’t have to be funny, but it can be!
