Recovery Comedy is Proud to Present Marshall Chiles October 20, 2009

Tags: , , , ,

Marshall loves to perform stand-up comedy for recovering addicts. Of all the shows he has performed all over the world, his recovery comedy shows are his favorites.

Being in active addiction is such a ridiculous, illogical way of life, that the simple truths of addiction are comical in their own right. Marshall hopes to show other recovering addicts, especially the new comer, that there IS life after drugs and alcohol… a much better way of life.

Marshall is very humbled to be able to carry the message of recovery while performing stand-up comedy at conventions, rehab centers, conferences, half-way homes, and anywhere else addicts need a laugh. Most of his comedy show is not about being in a 12 step program, but they are from an addict’s perspective. He closes all his shows at comedy clubs with his 12 step jokes because a) it is some of his best material, and b) it helps carry the message of recovery.

Marshall’s comedy is considered edgy and smart while not being offensive. He pushes the envelope while not being divisive and he can walk this line because his comedy comes from a place of love. Sure, he knows that sounds corny, but it is how he can say some of the things he says and make people laugh instead of walking out of the show.

The only magazine written by, for and about the recovery community.  Not just for the professionals serving the community, but the whole community.

The goal of “It’s All In The Journey” is to show someone still suffering how we did it. To teach, inform, and
entertain our brothers and sisters in recovery. To let family members and the general public know that treatement
for addiction is possible and available to everyone. And that it works if you work it!

Our Mission: The 12th step of the 12-step fellowship says, “…having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we try to carry this message to another alcoholic or addict.”

Take12Radio.com is a Christian owned and operated Recovery

Talk and Positive Music Internet Radio Station.

 
Monty Meyer. (the Monty’man) is the owner and Executive Producer of K.H.L.T. (K-HALT) Recovery Broadcasting, The Take 12 Recovery Radio Show and Sponsor to Sponsor Recovery Publications
A web site publication that has been serving the recovery community since 1997 Sponsor to Sponsor is where K.H.L.T. was birthed.

 
Working on the Pastoral Staff of Lebanon Foursquare Church and with local drug & alcohol services Monty’s work is primarily with those who have a desire to become whole through the process of recovery.

 
“The Internet is a community all it’s own, and like any community it’s population is filled to the overflowing with hurting and desperate people searching for a way out of drug, alcohol and other addictions. I believe that the only way to experience total recovery from this type of bondage is through accountability, education and a relationship with a power greater than ourselves, GOD.
 
Though there are some who experience a wonderful freedom from active drug and alcohol use without turning their will and their life over to the care of the creator, many of them never completely recover.
If they do it is only through the mercy of the God they have yet to know.

 
It is in the context of the original program of Alcoholics Anonymous, and the direction of a loving God that Take12Radio.com & KHLT Recovery Broadcasting are effective.”
 
The format that Monty uses in all of his Take 12 shows come from deep within his spirit. He desires that all seeking recovery never die behind any type of addiction or alcoholism. But more importantly, Monty’s heart is for the spiritual condition of his fellow man. Though he respects the rights of all people to believe as they will; Monty makes no apologizes for being specific that his Higher Power is Jesus Christ*
 
OUR DESIRE

 
We at KHLT Recovery Broadcasting and Take12Radio.com know that we have more than a partial remedy for the addict and alcoholic. We have the solution in the 12 Steps that guide us to the complete and final answer. A loving God who expresses himself by His complete understanding of His creation, not our limited understanding of Him.
We hope all our shows will point the listener to the final and complete answer to our powerlessness. God.
