Kerri Pomarolli and Ron McGhee find humor in almost any situation—even being Christians and newlyweds approaching their second anniversary. Both stand-up comedians, they've appeared together and separately in such venues as Comedy Central and The Tonight Show. With a shared passion for laughter and their faith, Kerri and Ron prove comedy—and marriage—can be good, clean fun. Here's what they had to say about blending faith and humor in marriage.
You share a good sense of humor. how else are you alike?
Kerri: We're both crazy. When we attended a Christmas party with fancy, elegantly dressed people, we tied ourselves up in red bows and Ron wore red-velvet "Santa" boxers over his pants. Our wedding cake was made of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. We're both completely outside the box.
Ron: We can make something five-star out of a one-star situation. We just add our own little touches and it becomes fun. For example, on our honeymoon we couldn't afford to stay at this fancy, $700-a-night hotel. So we'd drive over in the morning and hang out in the lobby, eating appetizers and enjoying the scenery.
How are you different?
Kerri: I'm a Type A control freak, always on time or early. I'm like a hamster on a wheel, running, running. But Ron exists on island time. His personality is, "Amen. It's all good."
Ron: Kerri wakes up thinking about things to do. I've got to send that e-mail. I've got to get that done. She's planning her whole day. I wake up, and I'm like, Hey, pillow.1
