Oh My Dad Ed2016

It can’t be easy being Jesus. He’s only got twelve Twitter followers after all. Clad in hotpants and bringing an exercise bike, Jesus returns to tell us about his life and pick up a few new followers in the process. He’s accompanied by his bumbling assistant Peter and his wife Mary Magdalene, who can only speak in words people have sent her on Twitter (the tag is #GiveMaryAVoice. Feel free). The trio use song, dance and plenty of corny jokes to chronicle JC’s life and the many misunderstandings that have been attributed to him. It’s a high-energy hour with plenty of laughter and silliness, the highlight being a segment where Jesus explains just what happened with Judas. Halle-berry-lujah indeed.

Voodoo Rooms, until 28 Aug.
