What if God were one of us, just a stranger on the bus...? Truth be told, God really hates that song. And he would not ride the f------ bus, especially in Winnipeg, where you’re either 35 minutes early or 10 minutes late. So proclaimeth our Lord himself in this hilarious 75-minute monologue.

The audience doesn’t stand a prayer before this profane Scottish matron (Victoria comedian Mike Delamont) in his floral power suit, sporting a devilish grin and striding barefoot across the stage, sending up everything from Adam (“I should have stopped at monkeys!”) to the afterlife (“Heaven has beach volleyball”) to the Exchange District (“It’s hard to tell who’s the crackhead and who’s the ‘fringe performer.’”).

It’s five-star standup comedy with soul. In Spanx.

— Margo Goodhand
