God is creating a new universe, and he’s looking for a focus group. This one-man comedy by Washington, D.C.’s Richard Potter mixes miracles with dad jokes to bring his world-weary deity to the stage. No divine intervention is required to get the audience laughing throughout this 65-minute performance.
Potter’s God character is well-written, with a personality that is self-deprecating and bitter enough to avoid seeming preachy. The comedy is witty and doesn’t push many boundaries, and you don’t need to be religious in any way to appreciate the jokes being delivered.
Pacing slips during the audience participation scenes, which seem out of place from the rest of the narrative. A magic sequence also feels like it goes on just a little too long. However, Potter’s comedic timing and stage presence during his monologues help raise this performance heavenward.
