Funny standup comedian and author of two books.
It doesn’t matter that Thor Ramsey happens to work clean comedy. He’s funny. And funny is the thing that matters when you’re watching a comedian.
Thor Ramsey is a nationally known standup comedian and one of the most recognized names in Christian comedy. Since 1987, Ramsey has performed in comedy clubs and churches across the country. Ramsey was featured in four of the “Thou Shalt Laugh” comedy movies, which sold more than a half million DVDs and were seen on cable television nationally.
He has been seen on several national comedy shows aside from his own television series, “Comedy At Large with Thor Ramsey,” which aired for one season on the i-Life Network. “Bananas” the family-friendly comedy series that he hosts is now seen in over 90 million homes and was recently purchased by Sony Television.
Thor has three solo standup projects, “Square” (2010), “Smart Mouth” (2008) and “Brimstone & Punchlines” (2006) in addition to producing and hosting the “The New Comedy Revolution” (2010). If there is a DVD featuring family-friendly comedians, Thor is probably on it (i.e. “The Clean Standup Comedy Tour” in 2004). His first book, “A Comedian’s Guide to Theology” was published in 2008 and has been widely praised by readers for its theological insights and humor. His second book, Thor Ramsey’s Total Money Meltdown.
