Sam Singleton Atheist Evangelist is a satirical fictional character created by the American humorist and performance artist Roger Scott Jackson. Loosely based on Jackson's own experiences growing up in a Pentecostal family, "Brother Sam" is the protagonist of a continuing series of one-character theater pieces: Patriarchs and Penises, If the Ocean was Whiskey and God was a Duck, Revival, and Too Big for God.
Sam Singleton Atheist Evangelist tours extensively, playing venues large and small throughout the USA and Canada. Among other secularist events, he has performed at the Texas Freethought Convention, the American Atheist Convention, Rapture Day, Skepticon, and Imagine No Religion2.
"Revival" is a satiric enactment of an old time revival meeting like Brother Sam went to as a boy. It has music, testimonies, a sermon, all the things you'd expect, except God. And the audience takes part throughout. It is both fun and funny.
More than a thousand people attended the show's premiere last November. Since then it has toured the U.S. and Canada, along with Singleton's other one-man shows, "Patriarchs and Penises," "Too Big for God," and "If the Ocean was Whiskey and God was a Duck."
San Francisco blogger Greta Christina said, "(Revival) is a hoot and a holler . . . laced with serious ideas, wild humor, and invective that's like a razor blade dipped in venom."
This event is $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
