Los Angeles, circa 1998, Sam Seitz is a mildly successful comedian with five Tonight Show appearances who is actively trying to lose his religion so that he might “pursue the mindless goal of becoming famous for the sake of fame, without hindrance, setting aside the truth that so easily besets” him. Coming from a family of the most famous evangelicals in the country, apostatizing is no small task. After all, his family has been called “the Kennedys of the evangelical world.” For the first time in his life, he feels like unbelief is within reach until he notices that Jesus is following him. Literally. Not to mention the demons he starts seeing, but they might be with the drug dealer who happens to be his stripper girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. And let’s not leave out the night God tells him in a dream that he only has twenty-four hours to live. Thus begins his quest to find a way to reverse this proclamation, but hopefully, one that doesn’t involve repentance since he’s trying to deconvert and all.
The End Times Comedy Show is a satire of the evangelical landscape filled with kindness, faith, and warmth for its characters. Blending magical realism and dark humor, Ramsey takes the theological subject of “crucified with Christ” to parabolic and hilarious extremes.
