Genre: Comedy

Author: Long, Adam & Martin, Reed & Tichenor, Austin

In the beginning there was chaos. But why stop there? It may seem hard to believe, but now the Good Book gets even better!

Whether you are Catholic or Atheist, Muslim or Jew, Protestant or Presbyterian, you’re sure to find something to amuse you in The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged). You might even learn a few things too! In this affectionate, irreverent rollercoaster ride from fig leaves to Final Judgment, three performers tackle the great theological questions, like: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelled the way it sounds?

“Not even the most somber, uptight Scientologist could take offense at this snappy, slick and utterly entertaining show . . . “

- Sunday Express

- “In the beginning there was The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). And it was good. And Shakespeare begat The Complete History of America (abridged). And that was good, too. And now America has begat (begotten?, begetted? . . . whatever) The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged), and damned if it isn’t the funniest of the lot.”
