Christian comedian John Crist has announced a new stand-up special with Netflix: “I Ain’t Prayin’ for That” hits the popular streaming service on Thanksgiving Day.
“Ladies and gentlemen, listen, very important. Your boy, yours truly, will be bringing his next standup comedy special to Netflix, everybody!” Crist announced in a Facebook video Tuesday morning. “The rumors are 100% true, ladies and gentlemen. This Thanksgiving Day, my comedy special ‘I Ain’t Prayin’ for That’ will be available worldwide … literally available in 20 different languages all over the world.”
Crist joked that due to the busyness of the holidays there won’t be many opportunities for fans to “Netflix and chill,” so he listed other activities fans can do while watching his special.
“First, ‘Netflix and kill your nieces and nephews for banging on your door at 6 a.m. trying to get you to play Wiffle ball while you’re in your room trying to watch my Netflix special.’”
“Two, ‘Netflix and treadmill.’ Yeah, you’re going to be eating a lot of food on Thanksgiving. Might as well put on my Netflix special and work off a couple of pounds while you’re at it. It’s a win-win,” he suggested.
Or, number three: “Netflix and get grilled by your family for all the questionable financial, career, and relationship choices you’ve made throughout the years,” Crist posited.
“All jokes aside,” he concluded, “I am so excited for you guys to watch this special, I can’t wait to hear what you guys think about it.”
Crist also shared the news on his Instagram page along with the caption, “This is not a drill…”
Hundreds of fans expressed their excitement over the upcoming special: “Love that title! Congrats friend,” commented actress and comedian Anjelah Johnson-Reyes.
Actress Megan Batoon also congratulated the comedian, writing: “JOHNNNN.”
