Lancashire's Rev Alex Frost (Jack) and Rev. Chris Krawiec (Krac) got together as a double act just over a year ago and regularly upload comedy videos and routines to their YouTube channel.
On Sunday night's 'The Xtra Factor Live' the pair found fame as a clip of their performance was shown.
Alex, of St Matthew's in Burnley, said: "We got a call from the programme to say their social media expert had spotted our video and they wanted to feature it as part of their round up of the best social media postings related to The X Factor."
Alex, 47, used to perform comedy when he was younger as a semi-professional comedian, appearing in clubs and pubs across the North West.
Then 10 years ago he was baptised, became a practicing Christian and began his journey towards becoming a vicar.
Chris, 30, who is based at St Bartholomew's Church in Great Harwood, said: "I had done some comedy work at college events in Durham while training for ordination. Then Alex and I met, clicked, and decided to explore whether two vicars can make people laugh in a way that shows people that laughter is a huge part of what it means to be a Christian.
"Too often people think being a Christian is a serious business all the time - but joy is such an important element of the Christian life."
