LAUGH: Comedian John Crist on keeping it funny: ‘Comedy, it breaks down the walls’

Comedian John Crist joined Glenn in the studio Friday to talk about his tour, "The Human Being," and to share how he manages to keep the angst and anger of politics out of comedy.

"My dad was a pastor for 30 years and then he became the mayor, and I'm a comedian," Crist explained. "[My dad] said, 'we're all kind of doing the same thing … we look at the world and we don't like what's happening.' So he first tried to change people's hearts in church. And then he tried to fix it by changing laws. And I'm doing the same thing … I'm trying to fix it by changing people's minds … because comedy, it breaks down the walls."
