Gospel Comedy At Its Best!
Roxanne David had her first experiences with
comedy in 1991. Her comedic debut was as "Brownie, the Christian Clownie"
for Pizza Hut's Kid's Night. She was the Assistant Manager at the time
and they were short a clown. Although Roxanne consented to do it, she
admits it was under duress. However, as soon as she put on the costume
and started interacting with the children as well as the adults, she
realized she absolutely loved it.
When Roxanne got down on her knees that night to pray she
asked the Lord what He would have her do with this wonderful new person
who had emerged. His response to her was as clear as a bell. The Lord
said, "I want you to spread my Word through comedy."
Roxanne David started with children's birthday
parties, picnics and youth-oriented church events. However, it didn't
really seem like that was the direction God had intended. Slowly, but
surely, as the Lord continued to help her perfect her craft, the white
face disappeared, then the honking nose, the big shoes and the
larger-than-life clown outfit.
Roxanne started getting more and more invitations to
adult affairs. So, she would do clean humor that was geared more for an adult
audience. However, she was still "Brownie." Then, one day, a good friend
from church was talking with her. They were talking about this wonderful
blessing the Lord has given her. The friend was joking around with her
voice. She was trying to sound country or southern or something. Then she turned to Roxanne and said, "You know who you are? You are
Miss Clareese." That was all Roxanne David needed to hear. It
was like this huge light came on. She knew that what the friend said had
come straight from the Lord.
From that point on, she has been Praising the Lord as
"Miss Clareese." She gives her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, all
the Praise, Glory and Honor for every opportunity that He so graciously gives
to her to share His awesome Word through comedy.
Miss Clareese doesn't mind letting the world
know that God is real and that He is still in the miracle-working
business. As she is fond of saying, "Every time I look in the mirror, I
am just simply amazed at what the Lord can do with leftovers."
Miss Clareese has an Associates Degree in
Theological and Evangelical Studies from the District of Columbia Bible
Institute, Falls Church, Virginia.
Miss Clareese may be available for your next special event!
