The original Sam Singleton
Atheist Evangelist show is still a
crowd favorite after se
ven
years. From a quick de-
construction of the Bible’s
main story-line, to a
reminiscence of childhood
terrors among “tongues-
speaking, snake-handling holy
rollers from the Ozarks,” to a
merciless dissection of the role
of God in civic life,
Patriarchs
and Penises
is fascinating,
horrifying, hilarious, and unlike
anything before.  
100 Minutes with intermission
Brother Sam and his cousin
Palmer have followed widely
disparate paths, Sam becoming
an atheist evangelist, Palmer
remaining faithful to their holy
roller upbringing. Palmer is the
one member of the Singleton
clan who has stuck by Sam. And
Sam is exasperated that
anybody so smart and decent
can be so misguided. Palmer feels
exactly the same way.  Their
conversations, as recounted in
Cats, Sheep and Goats: the
Taxonomy of Atheists,
Believers and Preachers
, are a
fun-house-mirror view of
relations between atheists and
believers.
60 minutes
Revival is a satiric enactment
of an old- time revival meeting
like Brother Sam attended as
a boy: congregational singing,
testimonies, and a sermon
(the Dill Pickle Award-winning
An Appreciation of
Appreciation
). The audience
takes part throughout.
75 to 90 minutes
Holy rollers with some funny
ideas about right and wrong, a
moonshiner, and one angry
nine-year-old preacher:
If the
Ocean was Whiskey and
God was a Duck
is Brother
Sam's recollection of the
summer he first doubted God.
