Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Funnyman Mike Delamont returns here for an abbreviated run, cut short to only three performances because he followed the first commandment of Canadian comedy: Thou shalt obey when the Just For Laughs Festival comes offering a televised gala gig.
That’s too bad for Winnipeggers, who have only a trio of performances — starting July 17 — during which to catch the second coming of the Scottish deity who, in a formless floral dress and no-nonsense hairdo, is no fashion god. He ambles about the stage barefoot, riffing on both the sacred and the profane. He reveals that Abraham got biblically punked when he agreed to sacrifice his son. He gripes that with a three-hour movie, Hollywood is making too much of Noah for the paltry two-and-a-half pages he gets in the Bible.
Delamont’s lord of the fringe is keenly observant and hilariously outspoken about all that he sees and thinks. It would be a sin to miss this show.

"Even better than the original!" - CVV Magazine
Winnipeg's favourite Scottish deity returns with an all-new hilarious show! You don't need to see the original to fall in love with this GOD. Returning to skewer everything from Cain and Abel to the Mormons, come and see why the Lord sold out major houses across the continent!
