Jeremy McLellan was raised Reformed Presbyterian (PCA), and went to Covenant College in Tennessee, which gave him a strong Christian intellectual formation. 

Wanting to have more of it sink into his heart, he went to live at a L’arche community in Chicago. Along the way, he flirted with the possibility of becoming Catholic, but it was spending lots of time with Muslim friends that caused him to rethink his Christianity as not just a belief system, but an entire way of life. 

Along the way, Jeremy discovered that his life experiences had given him a unique perspective that he could express through the medium of stand-up comedy, which he has been involved in for a number of years.
