Item description for Issac Air Freight: The Works : Sketches from the Premier Christian Comedy Group (Isaac Air Freight) by Dan Rupple, Isaac Air Freight Comedy Troupe & Dave Toole...

Any drama ministry will benefit from these crowd-pleasing sketches. Isaac Air Freight pioneered the use of sketch comedy from a Christian perspective in the late '70s/early '80s. Their eclectic blend of satirically humorous sketches are still relevant, still hilarious, still imbued with deep spiritual truths. This book contains material from their fourteen years of concert tours and five of their best-selling comedy albums, as well as numerous radio and TV appearances. It features a collection of zany characters, including a hapless private eye, a hippie leftover, an excitable sportscaster and many spoofed TV characters recognizable to every Baby Boomer. Each sketch is preceded by helpful information about the cast, setting, props and costumes. Cast sizes vary from one to twelve characters. Playing times run from five to thirty minutes. Performance rights and permission to reproduce sketches are included with the book's purchase. Use as sermon illustrations or put several together for a fundraising variety show or dinner theatre. Watch comedy work its magic on your audience by breaking down barriers so the message gets through. Thirty-four sketches including: Jerusalem Dragnet, Prodigal Joe, Leave It to Squirrellie, Specs O'Keefe in the Case of the Missing First Love, P. & R. Lucre Tithe Service, Heretic Jeopardy and twenty-eight others.

Reviews - What do customers think about Issac Air Freight: The Works : Sketches from the Premier Christian Comedy Group?

Childish Skits, No Wit  Sep 6, 2006
Flipping through this book reminds me of how embarrassing IAF's albums are. A typical skit of theirs is made up of one overstretched one-joke premise with a bland "message" tagged on to the very end. The delivery always had spaces that were the aural equivalent of a neon APPLAUSE signs to help along the usually humorless Bible-campers in their audience.

Such dumb "parodies" of tv as "Leave it to Squirley" are not interesting enough to hold the attention of adults who may know of "Leave it Beaver", but it will surely mystify the 9 or 10 year olds who are at IAF's level. This book kicks off with "Jerusalem Dragnet", which has unsettling similarities to a Stan Freiberg comedy album from the late 1950s--but without any internal jokes, wit, or puns. Undoubtedly IAF were inspired by the true geniuses of album sketch comedy, The Firesign Theater. But TFT's albums from the 1970s stand up to repeated listenings even for fairly young folk.

Skit comedy is a flogged horse nowadays, but IAF's gee-wiz "witnessing tools" were trite propaganda even back in the 1970s and '80s.
Christian Comedy sketches at it's BEST  Mar 20, 1998
The material in this book is inspired by God. It takes simple biblical truths and humorously reveals them through drama. The only negative comment is that there will be no sequels.
