The Jesus story gets an outrageous makeover in this laugh-a-minute comedy from writer-director Tommy James Green, with original music by Gianna Cheung and Jeremy Kindl.

Meet Jesus.

He’s thirty-three, single, and getting a little too comfortable mooching off his parents in ancient Nazareth. He spends his days punching in-and-out of his dad Joe’s carpentry business, and his nights punching bongs. It isn’t until God turns up at the door and dishes out his destiny that Jesus pulls his finger out. With a kick up the bum from his mother Mary and some fresh superpowers, Jesus heads for Jerusalem to save the people from what they never knew they had to fear... Their sins. Seems straight-forward enough, right?

Teaming up with twelve pseudo-revolutionary students and a sex-worker with a heart of gold, it’s not long before news of Jesus’ mid-shelf miracles reach the powers-that-be. Soon, miserly moneylenders, scheming priests and ruthless Romans are all out to whack this charismatic country-boy who would reluctantly describe himself as “the one true son of God”.

Packed with jokes, fights and original songs, this rollercoaster comedy about standing up for what’s right in the face of overwhelming odds tackles life’s big questions - without taking itself too seriously!
