Christian comedian David Graham will be one of the speakers with others being finalized.
Graham is a 20-year stage veteran who has worked with stars like Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and Sinbad. He has appeared in the movies Apocalypse, Beauty Queen and Tapestry of Shadows.
David’s 1992 stage debut was a reluctant “Open-Mike” appearance at the Funny Bone Comedy Club in St. Louis. It just happened to be a contest. He just happened to win. He was hooked.
His brand of physical, high-energy comedy led him to appear on the ABC- TV series America’s Funniest People, and later on Comedy Central’s Comic Justice, NBC's Last Comic Standing.
Graham is a clean comedian who hits those hard-to-reach areas of the comedic nervous system. From family discipline to a spell-binding Temptations review with David doing all four-part harmony acapella, Graham delivers for his audience.
