Event

Sam Singleton Atheist Evangelist
Sam Singleton Atheist Evangelist's live performances draw a surprisingly diverse audience--not only the expected true nonbelievers and philosophical and theological types but, a lot of people who just like to laugh.

Having taken the stage, Brother Sam, in his signature frock coat, blue vest and matching spectacles, welcomes the crowd with a crack about theists. The stage is black and bare except for a pulpit, a small altar bench, three rickety folding chairs, and a coat tree, all starkly white. Somehow, the outfit, voice, language, and Brother Sam‚s physical bearing combine to total and seamless effect.  

The two-act show, which writer-actor Roger Scott Jackson points out is a theater piece, not a stand-up act, runs for about two hours including a 15 minute intermission. The first act uses ‚autobiographical‚ details to set up searing political satire. The second act, hilariously and with ‚nearly absolute biblical accuracy‚ details the symbolic use of penises throughout the Scriptures.

Tour manager Cari Park says, ‚Don‚t look for Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris. This is comedy. From the subtlest irony to the most flagrant ridicule, it never fails to provoke both thought and laughter. Like Brother Sam says, If anybody can use some laughs and encouragement, it‚s atheists.‚
