“…let’s just say that comic acting – in the Fringe or anywhere else – doesn’t get better than this. NNNNN” – NOW Magazine

“Not only one of the most deft pieces of physical comedy I have ever seen – it is as subtle as it is funny, and as literate as it is energetic and frantic!”
★★★★★ -SEE Magazine

“Nothing short of a Comic Miracle”
-National Post

Katherine and I came up with this concept about five years before we found time to create it.  The basic idea is a fill-in of the lost years of Jesus (self-explanatory, right?).
The funniest story in relation to this play… While we were finishing the play, I decided I should read the book ‘Lamb’ (A similar concept, but not as funny as ours!) just to make sure that we didn’t have anything too similar.  And we ended up having to cut our very favourite part of the show.  Incredibly we both had Buddhist Abominable Snowmen who instructed young Jesus!!!
