    John Crist Cancels 2019 Tour Dates After Reports of Sexting, Harassment, Manipulation

    "I was blown away when John [Crist] agreed to do an interview with me for my senior project," she says. "... I was shaking and so nervous to be around someone I had idolized for months."

    From a makeshift podcast studio constructed in her room at Bally's Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, Kate* was thrilled to be interviewing her professional hero, comedian John Crist. She and her boyfriend drove to Las Vegas in May 2017 just to record this interview—and everything was going great. When the interview ended, Crist even stayed and chatted with them for a while.

    "I opened up about my mental health, what it's like being in the industry, addiction struggles and how he inspired me to create this podcast and do interviews," Kate says. "It was at this point John confided in both my boyfriend and me that he was a sex addict. Both my boyfriend and I felt it was cool how open he was about his past, and I continued to feel grateful and excited I was getting to meet my comedy idol. Moreover, I ... was so excited to have a mentor I had so much in common with."

    So she thought nothing of it when Crist asked her for her number before he left. Or when he later added her on Snapchat and immediately began messaging her. Or when he invited her out for the evening—just the two of them.

    Kate says she eagerly accepted, told her boyfriend about the meeting and then left to meet Crist. When she reached his apartment, he met her outside, suggested they rollerblade, and invited her upstairs to "grab a few things" for the trip. Upstairs, he gave her a water bottle full of raspberry vodka and poured himself whiskey in a Snapple bottle.

    Drinks in hand, they rollerbladed along the Venice boardwalk and talked. He reiterated how talented she was and how he could help her career. He also bladed behind her so he could "enjoy the view."

    "I was truly blinded by his celebrity status," Kate says. "There were a few moments I thought, 'Hey, this is kind of weird,' but the same phrase kept playing through my head that stopped me from leaving: 'It's OK. He's a Christian. He won't do anything inappropriate.'"

    Wow. The article goes on and on. He's not a nice person. I've seen the odd skit but I know my daughter loves his work.

    The reporter lady should have taken that first red flag moment when he brought up his sexual addictions. That was way beyond integrity as a believer.

    I agree, however, the article covers years of multiple (even constant) abuses wherever he went ... way more than what's posted here.

    John did a skit obviously poking fun at Kenneth Copeland. Maybe somebody now will do a skit making fun of John using his celebrity status to feed his addiction.

    This surprises me a little because when I've seen his comedy bits I couldn't help but notice that it seems he has eye make up on and I've wondered if there might be a little gay thing going on.

    Well I mean the 'date' they went on, they were both drinking, she got drunk, etc. Not exactly how a couple of Christians should be doing in the first place.

    He doesn't need "professional counseling", he needs deliverance. He has become a puppet of devils.
