Christian comedian Carlos Oscar will entertain Baylor University students during chapel services at 10 and 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20, in Waco Hall.

Oscar's version of comedy includes telling everyday stories with a humorous twist, acting out jokes and using various characters and voices, according to his web site. Topics range from his family and pop culture to common mishaps.

Oscar's comedy appeals to mass audiences as he keeps his comedy family friendly.

"When people hear I'm clean, they may think, 'How is he a comic?' The reality is I am much more creative and funnier with material. I don't and won't fall back on four-letter words or lewd innuendos to entertain an audience," Oscar said on his web site.

Oscar is a frequent chapel guest and has made appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Comedy's Central's "Premium Blend," and HBO.
