Who needs a comedy writer? His unique home offers hours of comedy material and inspiration for living life to the fullest. When he and Dawn were told they couldn’t have children, they were deeply moved by the biography of Keith Green, and they opened their hearts and home to 8 boys ( only 3 at a time ), a missionary family with four kids, a young couple with a baby. Also living with him are his "in-laws" and some "out-laws." YES - 2 prisoners under house arrest! Check out the dinner table!
In 2009 Gordon and his wife Dawn were named Parents of the Year in the state of Pennsylvania.
What else do you need to know? Besides his vast comedy background, Gordon was named Who’s Who in America’s Universities when he graduated from Philadelphia Biblical University in 1995. For the last 20 years Gordon has served as the head of the pastoral board of the Delaware County Pregnancy Center and regional coordinator of the National Day of Prayer. In his spare time he is still the president of Therapeutic Construction and Design- making custom equipment for folks with disabilities. In honor of his hero Bob Hope, Gordon started OPERATION BELLYLAUGHS, sending comedy DVDs to the troops. If you know a man or woman serving in the military, Gordon will send them a DVD. Just e-mail Gordon the address!

Where Gordon's Been
"There's a lot of good preachers out there and a lot of funny comedians but nobody
puts the two together quite like Gordon" Robert Hayes, America's Keswick
Learning from his comedy heroes Bill Cosby and Red Skelton, Gordon’s comedy mixes real life stories with “off the wall” physical comedy and his own hilarious view of life. You will relate to his side splitting stories from his life- like dropping the sermon notes into the grave at his first funeral to his demonstration of changing his first diaper, to his now famous “pantyhose dance” that has folks rolling in the aisles. He helps us see the funny things all around us and find joy no matter what we are going through.
But he is more than funny ! With genuine humility, honesty, and passion Gordon often weaves life lessons into his programs of the things he’s learned in the ordinary and often painful events in his life that include some tragic deaths, his wife’s victorious battle with cancer, and his dads many years confined to a wheelchair.
Gordon Douglas has been married to his wife Dawn for over 35 years,. They have five natural children and have opened their hearts and home to a whole lot more. But most importantly, Gordon is someone who lives and loves to laugh!
His comedy skills took him from the nightclubs in Philadelphia to Hollywood - and then ended up in ministry! But 15 years ago a wild thought came to him…. he didn’t have to give up comedy for the ministry - he can do both, often at the same time!
So since returning to the comedy world in 1995, Gordon has been in 37 states and 4 countries and has been featured on a variety of television and radio programs. What makes Gordon different? His unique ability to connect with everyone from teenagers to senior citizens. His comedy program has been seen on both Royal Caribbean and Carnival cruise lines. But his favorite events are for Church groups where there is a mixture of fun and faith, love and laughter.
