Lots of laughter, lots of tears

"Taped live at the Elko Theater in Elkhart, Indiana, the first hour of this show is hilarious stand-up comedy, geared for women, who comprise about 90% of Chonda's audience. With her twangy voice and infectious giggle, some of her stories are sidesplitting, with a wide range of topics, from the horrors that can happen while she is on tour, and her "honeymoon package" vacation in Cancun, to Nascar racing and husbands who like to hunt. There is something so real and likable about her, that she is endearing as well as funny, and she serves up a healthy portion of bright and refreshing entertainment.
Chonda also has a strong voice, with the kind of sound that would do well on a Broadway stage, and she sings three songs during the course of the tape.The last fifteen minutes of the performance takes a 180* turn, and her audience goes from laughter to tears. Chonda tells of her trip to Israel and visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and also about taking her daughter to a Passion Play in Arkansas; it is powerful testimony, spoken with sincerity, and so very moving; it would be hard to watch this without weeping, and it is my favorite part of the tape.
At the completion of the show, there is a music video where Chonda is joined by Sandi Patty for a rousing rendition of "The Girls Are Back in Town", with punk hair and a spunky attitude.
Called "The Queen of Clean", this wonderful comedienne from Tennessee is immensely talented, and her ministry goes straight to the heart. Total running time is 87 minutes."

"After attending the taping of this video earlier in the year I knew the stories were funny and the music was touching. This video captures the concert well, although I was suprised by the decision to turn Q&A and the concert opening video into "DVD Extras". It makes the beginning of the concert odd.If you are a Chonda fan this is a good look at her on stage in one of her favorite places. Her stories are on the mark and the music is good. There is an audio editing flaw on the Sandi Patti Video ... a bit strange, but the concert itself and the revealing Q&A segment are worth the price."
I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants!

"Chondra is Absolutely Hilarious in "Have I got a story for you". As a Christian comedian, she takes you from laughter to tears and back to laughter again. Her stories about her real life experiences are too funny! My favorite ones would have to be her take on Nascar and the time her husband got caught up in Airport security with her carry-on bag. I would recommend this dvd or video to anyone who is in need of a good laugh and some good clean fun!"
My daughter & I both enjoyed this one

"I saw Chonda in person at the Women of Faith conference earlier this year. She was so funny, I decided to buy this DVD. I laughed so hard watching it! We recently took a long road trip, and I put this DVD in the car for the kids (girl age 12 & boy age 11) as an option. My daughter watched this one several times, and she laughed pretty much non-stop through the video. It's nice to be able to share a stand-up comedian video with my kids. My son was less impressed (probably no shock there), but I did catch him at least smiling a few times."
