God Tastes Like Chicken
God Tastes Like Chicken is a mock religious service with faith healing, communion, passion plays and improv. We take on the excesses of organized religion through blasphemy and comedy. God Tastes Like Chicken is a very interactive show and among other things audience members are encouraged to attend in religious costumes. The show will include wild variety acts from up and coming downtown artists, musicians, performance artists, edgy comedians with something to say and experimental theatrics.
