Charles' New Comedy Book
|Charles' new comedy book, I'm
Not Crazy, But I Might Be A Carrier, will be available in all
Christian bookstores the first of May, 2008!
Not Crazy, But I Might Be a Carrier is a collection of forty columns
written in first person by Christian comedian and nationally syndicated
columnist Charles Marshall. While other humor books gently tickle the
funny bone, this one grabs hold and squeezes until you’re laughing so hard
you’re gasping for breath. Marshall admits he may not be entirely sane,
but it’s working for him. His point is that in spite of all the weirdness
life throws at us, God is with us throughout all the chaos.
In keeping with the book’s theme, each laugh-out-loud
essay is categorized under a psychological subheading (or variation
thereof) and deftly translates into a powerful spiritual message that
uplifts and encourages the reader. Sections include Delusional Obsessions,
Social-Paths, He-Manic Depressive Behavior, Dentally Challenged, Excessive
Food Swings, Criminally Inane, and Holiday Blues.

No other author is able to get away with offering hope to single men whose
stock has plummeted in the dating market due to recession (hair loss) and
inflation (weight gain) by encouraging them to explore the untapped
relationship markets of jail babes and golden girls. No one else is brave
enough to admit to a dysfunctional relationship with his computer, dole
out questionable marital advice, and whine about how he was misled by the
love songs of his youth.
As outlandish as these topics sound, Marshall still manages to bring them
around to pertinent spiritual insights at the culmination of each column.
Although the reader will have no idea where the writer is headed, it is a
ride they will definitely enjoy!
