Preacher Lawson, the Comedian

Preacher Lawson’s age is 25 and he was born in Portland, Oregon but was raised in Memphis, Tennessee. According to his website biography, he moved 20 times before age 10 and considers himself from Orlando, Florida, since that’s where he grew up as a comedian. He is one of four children raised by a single mother and at one point growing up, they lived in her car! He started writing jokes at 16 and performed a year later as a bet between himself and his mother. In 2015, he won the award for Funniest Comedian in Florida, and the 2016 International Comedy Competition.

Could Preacher win the $1.0 million prize?

Preacher Lawson’s Girlfriend

Who doesn’t love a guy that can make them laugh? Not only is it a great way to spend time but it’s a good workout for the abs, too! Preacher is dating singer Janine, and left a touching message about her on his Instagram page.

“Happy 1 year anniversary to the beautiful @janine to my left! Looking like the hulk slapped you with a SEXY STICK!!! I SEE YOU GUL!!! From the moment I saw you I said to myself ‘…that’s the girl I want to pay my rent…’ You are the most sensitive, kindest, sweetest person I’ve ever met…it’s so annoying! You’re also one of the most talented people I’ve ever met which is also annoying WHY DO YOU HAVE IT ALL!!! Thank you for being crazy supportive and helpful with everything I do. Love you lots [sic]”

Black Lives Matter

As a black man in the U.S., it should come as no surprise that Preacher is supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement and has protested in the past for justice and equality.

“#BlackLivesMatter Definitely one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had. I got chills from the amount of support. There were hundreds of people of all races. Majority being white people, which speaks volumes. It was nothing like most of the media portrays it to be. The cops were super nice and thanked us. Everyone was honking, wooing, waving, and some old lady said I was fine. Great day! [sic]”

Preacher Lawson’s Tour

Whether Preacher wins or not, fans will get a chance to see him on his comedy tour, starting from September 22 to February 9, 2018. All the information is available on his website and he’s also available for bookings.
