I moved to LA to pursue my dreams… famous actress/trophy wife. I went to church only when there was parking and did things exactly the way I planned them. Funny how even though I was getting worldly success and appearing on General Hospital and The Tonight Show, and my mom had things to brag about at bridge I wasn't happy. I knew something had to change. I silently prayed one night while sitting in a show… ‘God I just want to perform… however You see fit. I just want to come back to You.’
That was the most powerful prayer because the very next day things changed. I started a ministry called Act in Faith that provides original dramas for churches with Hollywood actors and directors. In the midst of that, God led me to stand up comedy. Not only did He want me to talk about HIM, He wanted me to do it in Hollywood where He wasn't getting much stage time. I said YES and everything took off from there. It’s been my honor and passion to go out, talk about HIM and what He’s doing in my life, to people from all walks of life—and I'm loving every minute of it. One night I'm in a comedy club and the next day I get to preach the gospel. It's the best of both worlds and I also enjoy speaking to groups at retreats and really sharing the heart of God. I even got to host the Gospel Music Awards Pre Show and meet some of my music heros. God has been so good to me. I never thought I'd be on the red carpet representing Him. But I'm proud to be a Christian in Hollywood. If it's teen girls or singles, women's or families. I'm always happy to share my story and some laughs.
I never imagined the doors that would open for me to share my faith on and off stage in the world of comedy and Hollywood but once I said YES to God's plans. I've been on the ride of my life ever since. Whether it's a college, women's group, or audience of thousands my life is a walking testimony and according to my mother, I'm pretty funny too!
What People Are Saying
Best decision we could have made.
Booking Kerri was the best decision we could have made. Kerri is a great comedian. Not a great "Christian" comedian. Not a great "female" comedian. She is simply a great comedian. . We booked her specifically for a Mother's Day event, but singles and even guys all enjoyed her material. And by enjoyed, I mean laughed uncontrollably until tears ran down their cheeks. I couldn't imagine booking anyone better. Kerri also has the ability to read a room and give them exactly what they need. We booked her for three services and each service, she read the energy of the room and brought them along to match her rhythm. That is a veteran skill that is truly rare. There is also a spiritual component to that, where she can speak to a whole room and individuals feel like she is bringing restoration to them personally. She under-promised and over-delivered. If you want a successful event, make Kerri a part of it. Do your organization and yourself a favor and book her now!
Her transparency is powerful.
When it comes to Kerri Pomarolli, her comedy should come with a warning sign: "Use of the bathroom is recommended before entering!" All joking aside, Kerri truly has the ability to minister to the heart. Her transparency is powerful. Her honesty about ther own challenges creates a place of safety for the hurting. She truly uses the power of her testimony to help the hurting overcome whatever it is they are facing. As far as a spirit led ministry using spiritual gifts to minister, Kerri is truly anointed. I know she has blessed us and will bless you.
"Blown Away!" The only words I can use to describe the "Night of Kerri" at The Well....Kerri Pomarolli blew our church family away with her hilarious and uplifting stories and antics. But my favorite part of the night was when she began to minister to The Well Family and pour their lives out through the power of the Holy Spirit. It was truly a life changing experience for all...The combination of her comedy and vulnerable ministry was a win for all our couples and families. She stayed well into the evening praying and interacting with each person. We've already invited her back again.
"There is still hope!"
Kerri was a delight to have at the Northeast Christmas Tea. This event provides us an opportunity to reach out into our community and invite people who may not otherwise come into the church. We bring in over 1,400 women over three nights! We wanted to be able to give the ladies an evening to relax and laugh, but bring them back around to the true meaning of Christmas. We were also looking for someone who would connect with the younger gals, but also with grandma! Kerri did just that! She connected with all of the women. We have received rave reviews, but the one that I will frame is... "there is still hope!" Praise God and thanking Him for Kerri's ministry!
"Breath of fresh air"
Kerri was a breath of fresh air. Our event was attended by ladies for all ages and she was able to connect with all of them. Laughter is good for the soul and Kerri definitely makes people laugh but does not soft-sell the Gospel.
"Enjoyable for ALL ages."
The women's ministry at West Shore Evangelical Free Church hosts an annual spring outreach event. This year we were interested in hosting a Christian Comedian for our event but I was not sure who that would be. I literally "googled" Women Christian Comedians and Kerri's web site came up. After scrolling through the different comedians, I came upon Kerri Pomarolli. I had never heard of her, but I loved her comedy that I saw on her promotional video. I forwarded it to my boss, Nancy Makowski, Director of Women's Ministry. We prayed about it and felt led to book Kerri for our event. I had the opportunity to talk with Kerri on the phone prior to her visit and it was like talking with a friend. She was wonderful! From the moment we picked her and her family up at the airport we got a sense that Kerri was approachable, real and non-pretentious. Her performance met the audience where they were – it was pertinent and all ages enjoyed her humor. She spent quality time with those who worked behind the scenes to put on the event as well as quantity and quality time with those who attended. She was funny, energetic and her message was very clear and appropriate for our outreach event. I would recommend Kerri without any hesitation or caution. She understands and connects well with her audience and to be with a performer who is real.
"Living from the inside out"
Kerri keeps on getting funnier and funnier, yet deeper and deeper in her message to women. It is clear that this is a woman who is living from the inside out.
"I was inspired to be a better Christian"
I loved hearing Kerri speak when I was at the Gems conference. I was feeling very overwhelmed and thinking that I should not be a Gems counselor. After hearing Kerri speak I was ready to take what I heard at the conference and teach those girls about the love of Jesus Christ, that they are special and He loves them just the way they are and where they are. I was inspired to be a better Christian. I loved her book!
"The healing laughter that Kerri provided"
"Not only did she make us laugh; she made us think."
Not only did she make us laugh; she made us think. Lots of times you hear a speaker, then walk away and forgot what they talked about. Not Kerri, what she says really sticks, and you walk away challenged. Many of our students said that they liked Kerri because she was REAL! You know, students NEED to hear from people that are honest with them.
Kerri Pomarolli is Awesome! She is mega funny with a message that's eternal.
"Singing her praises to anyone who will listen."
Kerri is utterly charming with her hilarious comedy and joyful demeanor. Her clean humor in “Laugh and Cry” was a great addition to our women physicians conference this year in Hilton Head. It was an evening of uproarious laughter with Kerri’s “everyday, everywoman” comic approach and her lively presentation. The first half of the event had everyone in the audience literally laughing out loud. The second half was her wonderful testimony showing just how powerful prayer can be and introducing us to her “miracle child” Ruby, and her praying child, Lucy. We would heartily recommend Kerri for your next special event. You will be highly entertained! I hope to see Kerri again. I am singing her praises to anyone who will listen.
