Comedian Marty Simpson at “The Main Event”
Marty Simpson had the opportunity to perform his comedy before 1,200 men at the Lifeway Main Event in Kansas City this summer. Featured speakers included the Urban Alternative’s Dr. Tony Evans, former All-Pro N.F.L. placekicker David Akers, Coach Tommy Bowden, and several other well-known Christian authors and speakers. Marty was able to weave into his comedy a message that was clear: It is the job of fathers to be the spiritual leaders in our households.
“Marty’s comedy portions of the weekend were the highlights both for entertainment value and for spiritual growth” said one young participant.
Marty’s job assignment was to be the comedy “relief” from all the serious messages delivered by the leaders. With great comedic timing and awesomely hilarious stories he was able to also infuse a spiritually relevant message into his comedy set. The spiritual punch delivered within the stories served the men of the Lifeway Main Event well.
