The day we went the play was sold out. Be sure to check before you go if you think you can just walk in and they will have tickets, not necessarily so.

It was decent. Some parts were pretty funny and some parts were pretty boring. I was expecting a lot better based on some of the reviews I read on other websites.

“Smart writing and deadpan social commentary”  —NBC Chicago


With a unique brand of live fundamentalist Christianity and an extensive, interactive website, this hard-hitting satire of religion has been turning heads since its inception. Hailed by the Chicago Reader as “The Best Sketch Show in Chicago” and by Time Out, The Onion, and NBC Chicago as a “must see,” BCOG is the only church God goes to.

Feature articles in the Sun-Times and_ Chicago Tribune_ have documented BCOG’s trademark exorcisms, PowerPrayers, sermons, religious puppet shows, miraculous transubstantiations (delicious!), original hymns and occasional live devil wrestling matches.
