Religious Humor

Just today I came across the web page for The Real Old Testament, a humorous, and somewhat accurate, portrayal of events as described by the Old Testament. The video covers the Garden of Eden, circumcision, and the test of Abraham and Isaac, among many other events. It mimics the format of MTV’s “Real World.” The web page contains a lengthy preview; the film is for sale.

(It’s still hard to beat Ricky Gervais’s reading of Genesis.)

Pat Condell, a comedian, also jokes about religion, though his messages are quite serious in content if not in style. On his main page, Condell warns, “I don’t respect your beliefs and I don’t care if you’re offended.” His podcasts and videos are available.
