A priest, an actress and a football player walk into a family gathering -- and the results are much more entertaining than any one-liner. Making God Laugh centers around a couple of beleaguered empty-nesters as they host their three adult children -- a devout priest, an aspiring actress and a former football star -- over the course of 30 years of family celebrations. Full of unexpected plot twists and turns, this comedic play is a clever, heartwarming spin on the old saying, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans!" Learn More

Four wives, 450 daily newspapers, millions of fans, hundreds of concerts, oceans of vodka, thousands of prayers, and at the beginning and the end of it all, Moreland, Georgia. Always Moreland, the tiny town that time forgot and Lewis embellished. It was his Mayberry, his Lake Wobegon. Like Twain before him, Lewis Grizzard used the sense of his youth to weave tales that were always truth and even when they weren’t exactly fact.
