Anyone who knows gospel megastar, Vickie Winans, knows that she is a natural born comedienne. For years, she’s been booked for as many hilarious Mistress of Ceremonies gigs as concert dates and now she’s recording her long awaited and first ever standup comedy DVD. Back in the 1990s, CGI Records released a CD of some of Winans’ hilarious stories entitled, “Share the Laughter.” However, this will be her first comedy DVD and the recording will feature more stories and situations that nobody can share like Winans. “We are about to have a ball, laughs Winans, as she is known to have her audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter.
