JUST BEING HONEST is a hilarious comedy special from Christian comic Jaron Myers, where Myers talks about truck drivers, traffic, selecting baby names, family game night, and how he became a Christian. JUST BEING HONEST is filled with funny clean comedy and has a section dedicated to the love Jesus Christ has for people. Caution is advised for younger children.

The special begins with Jaron Myers on stage in Springfield, Missouri. The Christian comic pokes fun at truck drivers in the area and his personal disdain for traffic. Myers seamlessly transitions his bits throughout the special and next tackles babies and their names.

From Jaron’s perspective, names vary between his friend groups. His Christian friends tend to select names based off books of the Bible while his hipster friends select more unorthodox ones. Oh, and let’s not forget the families that think it’s a good idea to have everyone named with the same letter from the alphabet.

Apparently, Myers lost over 100 pounds recently, which has made his pals from high school applaud his new look but also wonder if he had “a double chin going to his knees.” Next, Myers discusses the dynamics of family game night before talking about his viral rise to fame and one skeptic and online troll who always says, “just being honest” before or after insulting him.

In the past, this would’ve bothered him, Myers says. In fact, he was such a people pleaser that he almost gave up the hope of contentment and nearly took his own life. However, the Holy Spirit moved in his heart, and Myers realized the radical grace of Christ which changed his life forever.

To end on a comical note, Myers finishes his routine with a nod to Airdropping random people photos of dead possums.

JUST BEING HONEST is definitely for the Christian viewer who wants clean comedy. Jaron Myers is engaging and full of pep on stage, not to mention he plays off the audience with ease. JUST BEING HONEST has a strong Christian worldview where Myers shares his testimony and talks about the saving grace of Christ. JUST BEING HONEST has relatively no objectionable elements except for some descriptions of violence in jokes and a joke about motels being a home for drug deals. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.
