‘Ministers (& Judges) of Comedy’ returns Thursday at Civic Center

Staff report

The Ministers (& Judges) of Comedy, a night when ministers and judges take the stage and have fun for a good cause, will be held Thursday at the Salisbury Civic Center, 315 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.

The evening raises money for the Dixonville-Lincoln Memorial along Old Concord Road. The show, in which ministers and judges bring their take on comedy, was held for the first time last year and proved to warrant an encore in 2019.

David Whisenant of WBTV will serve as emcee. Music will feature the Battle of the Divas, who include Rebecca Stinson, Karen Hicks and Sue McHugh.

Participating ministers will include the Pastor Mark Conforti of First United Methodist Church; Pastor Geoffrey Hoy, a member of St. John’s Lutheran; Pastor Thomas Lee of White Rock AME Zion Church; the Rev. Robert Kelly of Moore’s Chapel AME Zion; Pastor Robert Moore, formerly of Bethel AME Zion; Dr. Claude Forehand of First Baptist Church, Kannapolis; and the Rev. David Brackin of Jerusalem Baptist Church in Reidsville.

Retired Judges Frank Montgomery and Larry Ford also will be part of the show.

Door prizes will be given away.

Tickets are $10.

Sponsors and contributors for the show include Mr. and Mrs. Ed Norvell, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Wagoner, Jeffrey Morrow, Jason Walser, Sidewalk Deli, Tamara Sheffield and David Post.
