ABOUT THE SHOW

It’s December 21st, 2012, and something’s gone terribly wrong with the timeline. Now it’s up to Saint Nicholas, a soft-boiled detective, and an unknown carpenter’s son named Jesus of Nazareth to set things right in this giddily blasphemous collection of literary parodies by internationally touring storyteller phillip andrew bennett low!

This show was recognized as the bestselling show in its venue at the 2018 Kansas City Fringe Festival and selected for a coveted Encore slot.

WARNING: may contain mature language, as well as immature and insensitive humor regarding genitalia, flatulence, regurgitation, sex, drugs, rock and roll, lies, videotape, duct tape, tapeworms, subversion of ethnic stereotypes, fulfilment of ethnic stereotypes, hate culture, rape culture, ape culture, horticulture, and/or a deep reverence for deep irreverence. Not for the faint of heart or stomach.

Strike Theater is dedicated to Twin Cities sketch comedy, storytelling, and spoken word. Founded by Director of Word Sprout and SlamMaster of Poetry and SlamMN! Allison Broeren, and longtime Improv Artists, Educators, and Brave New Workshop Alumni Mike Fotis and Joe Bozic. In partnership with SEIU Local 26 Janitor/Window Washer/Security Union. For real. It's awesome. Trust us. Together we Strike.

PRAISE FOR PHILLIP ANDREW BENNETT LOW

 “...an accomplished writer and performer with a wonderfully wicked sense of humor...also viciously intelligent and terrifyingly well-read...ranges from sophomoric laughs to incisive political and cultural observations.”

- E.J. Bouinatchova, author of Fresh Cut
