ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ISAAC AIR FREIGHT
Isaac Air Freight was the original; the best known and most inventive comedy team in a field they almost single-handedly pioneered: Christian Comedy. Their unique style of satirical sketch comedy, humorously communicates piercing truths about the human condition, while introducing you to some of the most colorful and real characters you may ever have the pleasure of meeting.
The original members of Isaac Air Freight, Dan Rupple, Dave Toole and Larry Watt, teamed up in 1976 with the hope of building successful comedy careers. They were able to do just that, but in a way they never expected. They first gained considerable word of mouth attention around Southern California nightclubs, when in 1977, they each made a commitment to Christ. The dramatic personal changes they experienced quickly became evident in their direction as a group. Material that had its basis in cynicism and escapism steadily gave way to comedy that inspired their audiences spiritually and offered them a new lens to examine society’s values. Isaac Air Freight was born!
In 1978, they recorded their first album entitled FUN IN THE SON. It was an immediate best seller among contemporary Christian audiences and by the time IN THE AIR/ON THE AIR, their second album was released, the group’s touring schedule had grown enormously, and with it, the appeal for their insightful comic vision. 1980 brought the release of FOOLISH GUYS...TO CONFOUND THE WISE, an album aimed at the spiritual center of contemporary life, both inside and outside the church; a powerful statement in laughter.
In 1981, Dan and Dave began work on THE ISAAC AIR SHOW, a highly successful daily radio feature. The program was syndicated nation-wide on over 120 stations. The most popular selections from the show gave birth to two more albums, SNOOZE YA LOOZE and MY KINGDOM COME/THY KINGDOM COME.
Extensive touring and numerous television projects brought the group widespread recognition not only within the Gospel industry, but with a national, mainstream audience. Their growing popularity brought two more albums aimed at this audience outside the church walls. THE FREIGHT’S DESIGNER ALBUM (1985) and OVER OUR HEADS (1987) revealed their growth as artists and as communicators.
For many of you, this CD will bring back wonderful memories of this group’s classic comedy, and all listeners will discover that the eternal truths of these sketches are as relevant and true as the day they were first presented.
