Chonda Pierce Still Laughing after All These Tears DVD Set Review

FTC disclaimer:   I received a DVD set from Family Christian for review purposes.  All opinions are my own.  This post does contain affiliate links.

When I had the opportunity to review an EIGHT DVD set of Chonda Pierce called Still Laughing After All these Tears, I just had to say yes.  After all, I've never met her but she and I went to the same college (although she went years before I did) and we have mutual friends on Facebook.  So that must mean she is amazing, right?   (Either that or my friends just put up with me and they like her! ha ha!)

I've seen a few of Chonda's DVDs which are included in this set.  As with any artist, and a comedienne is no different, I think her craft improves with each DVD.  She hones her skills and although it's difficult for me to laugh at comedy, she succeeded beautifully, as I knew she would.

Like I said, she and I went to the same college.  I laughed so loud I scared my pet guinea pig when she told the story about getting her ears pierced.  She started out that she went to Trevecca Nazarene and started muttering.  I, too, feel the confusion.  When I went (like her) it was a college.  Now it's a University.  What do we call it?  (Last time I was on campus I bought a sweatshirt that said "Trevecca Nazarene" with nothing else after it.  I think they sell them for confused alumni like us!)  While I realize not many of us would find this so funny, it shows how relatable her humor can be.

I also loved her story about finding a dead body in a hotel room.  It makes me feel better that one time I walked in to my hotel room to find the hotel overbooked it and there was a man sleeping in there.  (At least I assume he was sleeping.  I didn't inspect him, just went to the front desk!)  I agree with her that we all have stories we can tell!

This is a great DVD set that will bring you hours of entertainment.  As soon as the weather gets better, some friends and I are planning a girl's night in and binge watching this set.  One thing that is great about these is her comedy is clean, and my friends won't even have to find babysitters for the evening because kids can hear this as it is family friendly.

Speaking of family friendly, I need to get my husband to watch this because of her story about how she saved money on a trip to Cancun.  Even he would have to admit that while I like saving money, I'd never pull off a stunt like that.

It's hard to say which of the stories or which of the DVDs is my favorite, so you'll just have to pick for yourself.  You'll enjoy deciding your favorite story, that's for certain.  You can purchase these at Family Christian and if you order online you'll even get free shipping!

And guess what?  Family Christian has offered to send one of the readers of Books, Bargains, Blessings a Still Laughing After All these Tears DVD set of their very own.  You can enter below.
