Laughter, they say, is the best medicine. Indeed, there is some evidence that laughing (as well as faith and prayer) can help cure disease. In this study, based on Marshall Allen s review of Christian standup comedians, we will look at the role that humor plays in the lives of Christians and in the Bible.
