Marty Simpson’s Clean If It Kills Me
Everyone has heard stories of famous rock bands demanding certain incredibly specific things on their riders like “only green M & M’s” or “Chex Mix with no bagel chips.” We had always chalked it up to the stuff of legend. Well now, Christian Comedian Marty Simpson has taken this concept to a new extreme.
Included in his demands are hotel rooms for his two golden doodles, pH balanced water in the hotel room toilets in case the doodles drink from the aforementioned toilets, reimbursements for expenses during travel including toll roads, amusement park fees, snow cones, bail money, and back massages, as well as a host of other idiosyncratic demands. Not the least of which is,
In lieu of a sound system, Marty prefers to connect his microphone to a splitter that will go to two large jam (and/or boom) boxes. These boxes should be on the left and right of the stage. They should be held over their head by two 17 year old boys, both of whom should be wearing beige trench coats.
– Excerpt from Page 2 of Marty Simpson’s Rider –
The nerve of some artists is astounding. But evidently some people don’t agree. Here is a recent quote from one of the clients who booked Marty for a show.

Considered “one of the brightest young minds in Christian Comedy,” Mike Goodwin has a heart to bring strength and healing through joy to the Body of Christ. That’s why he’s dedicated his comedic gift and wit to a style and delivery that is as clean as his bowtie…
Mike was born again at a New Year’s Eve service in 1998. Ironically, a New Year’s Eve service was also the birthplace of Comedian Mike Goodwin. Mike opened for Comedian Akintunde that night in 2002 and he has been leaving his mark ever since.
A Camden, South Carolina native, Mike is the oldest of three children. Mike entered the United States Army after graduating from Camden High School in 1993. After four years of service, Mike exited active duty to enroll into Lander University in Greenwood, SC. At Lander, Mike was very involved on campus, and the seeds of comedy were planted. Mike hosted a myriad of events, and he also served as a student ambassador of the college. Mike was also initiated into the Gamma Nu chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and he is a charter member of the Omicron Nu chapter.
Mike graduated from Lander University with a BS in Political Science in 2001. He also graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Master of Education in 2003. Mike also served in the US Army Reserves as a commissioned officer.
Mike incorporates his life experience into his roles as a comedian, writer and motivational speaker. Mike and his beautiful wife Rozalynn, and their daughter and son live in Columbia, South Carolina, where he also serves as an Elder at Right Direction Church International.
…Good laughs are guaranteed and you’ll be laughing about his wit long after the show. He’s serious about God and seriously funny.
Oh yeah – For the record: he’s not a Muslim. He just likes bowties.
