Stine’s style has been described by Newsweek as “conservative” with a “rat-a-tat delivery” and by The New York Magazine as “Gods comic” However, unlike these and a lot of other comedians, Stine does not use profanity or sexual humor because of his conservative Christian faith. He has been described as “a clean Denis Leary” and his material targets “liberals, humanists, political correctness and judgmental Christians.” Stine has claimed that his conservatism has sometimes resulted in the loss of appearances. Stine himself claims that much of his more extreme material is facetious and satire, getting riled up for humorous effect in order to make a point.

After having performed at Promise Keepers events, Stine founded and started GodMen in 2006 which was similar to Promise Keepers but promoted “Spiritual Masculinity” Stine has since returned to the Promise Keepers.  Stine has performed at many big name events and continues to be one of the top Christian comedians out there.

This helped to boost his career and he now is one of the most recognized and in demand Christian Comedian around.

When you call yourself a Christian comedian, there are two circles — what people find funny and what people consider Christian, Finding that overlap — it’s very small. It’s a fine line finding what is clean, funny but also Christian. I do get to talk about my faith during shows, but there are people who get mad either because there isn’t enough Christian or there is too much.” __BOB SMILEY

“I want MY KIDS TO READ the bible and you know…find out what your kids are reading before you do certain activities…I took my oldest son, Colter, on a camping hiking trip not realizing he had just gotten to the part where Abram had taken his son Isaac…I got out of the tent that morning, I was like morning Colter, do you want to go on a hike? And he was like what; no, I want to go home…”Bob Smiley.
