Review by CHAIRMAN BARNES

June 09, 2018 certified reviewer

What I liked

Mr. Isaac is a captivating writer/performer adept at delivering his comedy with a touch of pathos as he deftly leaps back and forth into the different personas he has created. While, at first, you may think this is an anti-church piece delving into the phenomenon of religious hypocrisy it takes an unusual and unexpected turn.

What I didn't like

Maybe don’t keep the cell phone in the preacher’s robe?

My overall impression

Victor Isaac takes turns as a preacher leading a hard-partying congregation (the ‘early-bird’ Sunday service starts at noon) and a luckless prison inmate named LeShawn. How these two people are connected to each other, well, that is the crux of the story.
