"When this started I kind of looked at the panic that was going on around me I don't know what triggered inside of me," she explained.

Elaine started doing Christian comedy in her mid forties and her biggest supporter her biggest fan was her husband Rickey.  He was a preacher and she was the preachers wife.  Well Rickey passed almost four years ago and the grief caused Elaine to stop making people laugh.  Coronavirus kind of brought somthing back to life in her.

"He didn't just support me he wrote some of the songs, she reminisced.

Now Elaine is finding strength in her own voice and providing comfort to other people with her comedy.
