Jerry Minor – From Jehovah’s Witness to Comedian

August 22, 2019

This week, Point of Inquiry welcomes actor, comedian, and former Jehovah’s Witness, Jerry Minor. Minor has been a cast member and writer on Saturday Night Live and appeared on HBO’s Mr. Show and various other television and film spots throughout his career. He joins Jim Underdown to dive into his life during and after being a Jehovah’s Witness. They also get into how the Jehovah’s Witness religion drove Minor to attempt suicide, the different Christianity sects and how Minor views them as cults, and how his past faith has shaped his career as a comedian and entertainer.

Together with friend, Tony Ortega, Underdown and Minor host their own podcast, The Cult Awareness Podcast, where they explore the latest in cult news.
