God's Pottery
God's Pottery

The big news around town (or, in my brain at least) is the fact that Christian folk duo God's Pottery is ready to unleash a new 1-hour show onto us Godless, sinful New Yorkers before heading off to Canada and Scotland to spread fellowship. You see, last summer they put on several benefit shows known as The Concert For LaVert. The success of those shows made them realize they were doing mankind a huge disservice by helping only one soul at a time. To remedy this, they bring us God's Pottery Saves The World. In this new show, the boys take on more global issues like adoption, drug addiction, and Africa in an effort to save all mankind through the power of song, true belief, and a PowerPointâ„¢ presentation.

New York is entitled to three performances only before they take on the world. They're at the UCB Theatre, and you better make reservations now, or else be damned to swelter in anquish in the stand-by line

These have been making to rounds on the internet lately, but in case you missed it, Aziz Ansari decided to get down with VBS and Dos & Don'ts Friends on VBS and laugh at some people with them. Watch em:

Just a reminder: Brooklyn's Southpaw will play host to a South Towards Home comedy benefit on 7/12/07. Guests include David Cross, Todd Barry, and Jon Benjamin. Tickets are $25.00. That line-up is worth the ticket price alone.

Patton Oswalt had a short essay in Vice recently. He'll be at Sound Fix the same night as the above Katrina event.

Ummmm....Do these guys actually suck, or are you just being mean spirited because they are Christian? I have no problem making fun of Jesus freaks, but your description makes you sound a little insecure...defensive much?

I think they're making fun of the christian folk.

I didn't pick up any mean spirit from Klaus's God's Pottery blurb. I did notice that he failed to mention The Whitest Kids U'Know's show at Piano's earlier in the week. God's Pottery and the brilliant John Mulaney were also three, but they were nowhere near as awesome of TWKUN.

Yeah, Joe Schmoe and others... it says Klaus Kinski's COMEDY Canon. God's Pottery is a comedy act. He's saying they're funny. Way to catch on.

God's Pottery is a comedy duo -- but, while they aren't "believers" in real life, they aren't all-out making fun of Christians, either. It's more like a gentle ribbing of the naivete that some Christians seem to have.

It's actually a bit hard to explain; however, I've caught their act several times -- so let me assure you that they are awesome and very funny.
