Popular longtime Christian author and comedienne Chonda Pierce will be hitting the big screen next month in a new special feature, called Chonda Pierce: Laughing in the Dark.

The one-night only cinema event will premier in select theaters around the country Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. in all time zones, thanks to presenting partners Fathom Events and Fuseic Entertainment. 

A deeply personal glimpse into the life of Chonda Pierce, the film chronicles a series of tragic circumstances she recently faced, including the loss of her husband. Leaning on her faith in a season of heartbreak, Pierce perseveres--her signature wit always intact--hoping to inspire and encourage others with her story.

"I'm nervous!" Pierce admitted. "I have allowed a film crew to expose very tender and private moments in my life simply hoping to continue a dialogue about faith, depression, grief and pain to promote healing for brokenhearted people."

She went on to say that the film doesn't just tell people about struggles, but shows it all, noting that although she loves the Church, it's imperfect, and that although she loves God, life can be hard. 
Immediately following the film, theater audiences will have the opportunity to view a special post-event presentation, Finding Light in the Darkness. Various celebrities and public figures, including Roma Downey, Kevin Sorbo, Sherri Shepherd, Monica Crowley, Corbin Bernsen and Duck Dynasty’s Missy Kay Robertson, are slated to discuss the impact of Pierce’s story. Audience members can submit questions in advance by emailing
“This event really brings to light the importance of having faith through life’s most difficult times,” says John Rubey, CEO, Fathom Events. “Chonda’s ability to use humor to overcome her struggles is truly inspiring and a great lesson for us all.” 
Tickets for "Chonda Pierce: Laughing in the Dark" can be purchased online at, or at participating theater box offices. The event will be offered in nearly 480 movie theaters in Fathom's Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations, visit (theaters and participants subject to change).
