Brad Stine is known as the man that revolutionized and launched the new era of Christian comedy in America with his breakout album “Put a helmet on!” that single-handedly redefined the way Christian stand-up comedy could be perceived and performed.
His unique style, forged in the comedy clubs he performed in for years features sarcasm, biting wit and intelligence with an energetic approach with no topics off limits, all the while being the only comic that uses Judeo/Christian worldview as his social commentary, which was unheard of at that time in the Christian comedy genre and still is to this day!
His cutting edge brand literally opened the door for many other Christian comics to follow who have acknowledged his influence including Tim Hawkins, John Crist, and Michael Jr as well as a host of others whose careers and styles have been impacted by Brad Stine. The man the New Yorker magazine dubbed ”God’s Comic”.
