John Crist is known for his southern-bred standup and clean comedy, but today (7.11), he’s exploring a new avenue of his career – music. Out now, his debut solo release is a laugh-out-loud parody that brings all aspects of “Every Christian Music Video” to light. Co-written and performed by Crist, the track is available to stream/download across all digital platforms today.

A viral sensation with more than 1 Billion video views, Crist is fresh off the release of his third comedy special, “John Crist: Would Like to Release a Statement,” which debuted via YouTube on May 23 and features hilarious segments including “Rosetta Stone for Christians,” “Naming Your Kids with Bible Names,” “Americans Comparing Themselves to People of the Bible,” and more. With 5.7+ Million followers across social media, Crist is busy crisscrossing the nation on his sold-out ‘Emotional Support Tour,’ a massive, nationwide trek that is on track to sell well over 100,000 tickets across the U.S. and is currently ranked among Pollstar’s Top-10 Comedy Tours in America.

In 2022, along with his second special, ‘What Are We Doing?,’ the Georgia native-turned-Nashville also released his best-selling, debut book “Delete That” via Penguin Random House, and launched his weekly podcast, “Net Positive,” which is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing comedy podcasts in the nation, featuring bi-weekly in-depth interviews with special guests including Eric Decker, Matt Rife, Leanne Morgan, Scott Stapp and more.
