A Legendary Comedian & Celluloid Saint

Jul 1, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

“I sing a song of the saints of God…and one was a prophet, and one was a priest, and another was slain by a fierce wild beast…”

This famous hymn by Lesbia Scott that so many love to sing highlights the role of “saints” in our everyday lives – those “saints on earth” that help us travel through life with the help of the Divine. Our summer faith and film series “Celluloid Saints” will delve in to the lives of everyday saints and how their extra-ordinariness is the stuff of real life faith!

You know him from his famous role in Taxi. This film is a docu-drama on the life of a comedian, actor and self-declared Intergender Wrestling Champion of the World. The film takes us on the wild ride of his interesting/quirky/weird/wonderful life. What can we learn from the wild and wacky ways of life? We’ll talk about it!
