In recent years we have been able to provide a whole host of free resources to help community groups think about films such as Life of Pi, Les Miserables and Song for Marion. We are working hard to ensure we can continue to provide free resources like this. Now we are launching Damaris Film Clubs to enable people to more easily use these free resources and get priority access to them. Damaris Film Clubs are suitable for all sorts of settings – community groups, workplaces, neighborhoods, churches or coffee shops. Starting a Christian comedy club. Why God gave humor, how it communicates http://internetevangelismday.com/blog/archives/2320 2010-08-12T04:47:45-05:00 I blame Bob Monkhouse. I trace my huge enjoyment of comedy, and attempts to make others laugh, largely back to his Mad Mad Movies TV programme. All he really did was show clips of old slapstick – Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, The Keystone Cops and the rest. And I was hooked at the age of about seven or eight. But I never thought I’d be organising and running a comedy club – let alone launching our town’s first ever Comedy Festival.
