I got this text from Jon yesterday at lunch.
So nice of Jon to give me a shout out in the interview. Here’s what he said:
An evangelical magazine recently named you one of the funniest Christian writers alive. Who else should make the list?
I think Tripp Crosby, Tyler Stanton and Bryan Allain should make that list. Another new author named Chad Gibbs regularly kills me. A girl nicknamed “Stacy from Louisville” too. I’m too young and new to be on that list. I’m only two years into this satire Christianity thing and have a long way to go, so I’m not sure I am one of the funniest Christians alive. Although as a Christian, you’re supposed to reject compliments so maybe that’s what I’m doing.
Thanks again Jon for the kind words. When you’re trying to be funny (like I am) and someone funnier than you (like Jon) tells you you’re funny, you eat that stuff up like candy. Speaking of which, I’ll be chewing on that compliment all weekend like it’s a frozen Now & Later.
FYI…Kevin Roose did a great job with the interview, which you can read in it’s entirety here.
