Megachurch pastor T.D. Jakes' three-day Christian festival, MegaFest, kept going late Friday night with praise and punchlines.

Comedian Cedric the Entertainer and actress Niecy Nash co-hosted the Just Churchin' Comedy Show at the Dallas Convention Center.

A packed house watched a choir and several comedians crack jokes for several hours.

Nash spoke with the media before the show about her career and her involvement in MegaFest. This is her second time attending the event.

"If you're going through something, this is where you need to be. If you're happy about something, and you want to celebrate it, you're grateful, this is where you need to be. If you're a man out there looking for a women, hey, they're all here -- this is where you need to be," she joked.

Friday's event wraps up with a late-night musical jam session sponsored by BET.
