“…There is no doubt about it, these three lads are in a league of their own when it comes to vivid originality in the show… They have sublime moments of surreal theatricality… Sly minds are at work throughout. Posing the theological question: Does God have a sense of humor? they prove that undoubtedly he has. Why else would he have left the Children of Israel to wander the Middle East for forty years and then give them the only bit of land with no oil on it?”Jack Tinker, Daily Mail (London)   “…That apocalyptic roller-coaster of sex, violence, murder and miracles—the Bible—has been abridged by three American sinners. And verily this blasphemous, hilarious zip through the Old and New Testaments will henceforth be proclaimed as THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (abridged)… Not even the most somber, uptight Scientologist could take offense at this snappy, slick and utterly entertaining show…”Sunday Express (London)   “`In the beginning,’ a godlike voice informs us, `there was chaos.’ But why stop there?

And it was good. And SHAKESPEARE begat THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF AMERICA (abridged). And that was good, too. And now AMERICA has begat (begotten?, begetted?…whatever) THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (abridged), and damned if it isn’t the funniest of the lot…”Bob Mondello, City Paper (Washington)
