Performance selections Now Online!Six performance Videos of the ribald dramatic monologues of"The story God & Mel Gibson don't want you to hear!!"http://www.flashpointmag.com/carloparcelli.htmPoet Vaudevillian Carlo Parcelli performs selections in costume from The Canaanite Gospel: A Meditation on EmpireIn the classical argots of Petronius, Rabelais, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Lenny Bruce, Guy Ritchie, James Joyce, David Jones, Cockney and the world's myriad cryptolects, The Canaanite Gospel strips bare the New Testament canard of the Resurrection of Yeshu of Nazareth and pokes a stick in the eye of the Synoptic Gospels. Culled from First Century Texts and drawn from dozens of biblical and secular sources, these monologues tell a revisionist tale of what transpired in Judea, Easter Week/Passover 33 AD and beyond during the reign of the Roman Emperor Tiberius."Exposes the underpinnings of humanity's destructive clamor for myth" --- Bob Sellers“A 21st century Shakespeare.” --- Jim Sears“This shit is fucked up!” --- outraged anonymous Christian at one of the performances"Unexpectedly and wildly entertaining" --- Don Williams“Funny to tragic. Every character has his or her story to tell in a distinct, one of a kind voice.” ---Michelle Hanlon
