Laughing with The Lord: the clerics giving stand-up comedy a go

Clergy doing stand-up comedy? You've got to be kidding. Well, actually no. Preachers in the Diocese of Canterbury have been given the chance to take comedy classes as part of the Church of England's ministerial development programme.

Hannah Costigan went to meet the vicars learning ways to make their congregations laugh.

Her report includes interviews with Lay preacher, Lynne Watson, Rev Tricia Fogden, Rev Phil Sheldrake, Rev Ravi Holy and comedian Bentley Browning.
