Heath Franklin’s Chopper

Bogan Jesus

Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Laughing Stock Productions

–NEW SHOW ADDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND–

Sun 11 Mar 8.45pm (NEW SHOW ADDED)

In the beginning, God created the moustache…and it was good. Then he took the next six days off, because once you’ve nailed it, treat yourself to a lie-down.

The world has had religion ever since God was in nappies, and what have we got to show for it: wars, terrorist attacks and Christian rock. It’s time religion took a hard look at itself, so Chopper is starting his own one, in his own image and giving hell to the almighty.

Are you sick, lonely or poor? Well, there are plenty of other churches for you. Chopper is looking for rich idiots to tithe the crap out of; but really, any sinner will do.

There is a new ‘mo-ssiah’ for a new age and he’s holier than Oscar Pistorius’ bathroom door.

Thou shalt harden up and become a Chopostle! So gather round and be healed by Bogan Jesus!
