Comedian, former pastor of the San Luis Obispo United Methodist Church and former Chicagoan, Jane Voigts, is returning and bringing a variety show unlike any other. The Bible Cabaret: A Comedy and Music Revue Starring the Old and New Testaments is an exploration of how the Bible works as comedy, as a sacred text with a surprisingly playful spirit intended to make us laugh. The Cabaret has appeared on stages in Los Angeles and Minneapolis and is now coming to the Second City’s UP Comedy Club on Monday, June 30, to benefit GROWING HOME.


Says Rev. Voigts, "It's commonly understood that humor is one of the best avenues for delivering messages, especially serious ones. This truth was not lost on the ancients. There is actually a lot of delightful as well as stinging satire, self-lampooning, goofy riddles, trickster adventures and more, and throughout the text, from beginning to end. So much of the Bible is better suited to Saturday Night Live than the History Channel."


Jane will be performing a series of comic monologues and character sketches based on the Bible and its comedy. Also on the bill June 30th are The Famous Brothers, self-proclaimed blue grass legends; atheist and raconteur, Tom Wolfe; an Irish-American dance off; and selected songs by a surprise guest and local cantor. The Bible Cabaret is an experience for people of all faiths.


In 2013 Rev. Voigts was pastor of the experimental "LA Comedy Church" in Toluca Lake (a neighborhood of Los Angeles). She is currently residing in Iowa to care for her ailing parents and continue developing The Bible Cabaret and related projects.
