About this show

Jim Loucks's live-wire solo performance takes you to the Deep South with preachers shoutin' from the mountaintops, mamas pickin' switches, and hellfire just a heartbeat away.

After playing to critical acclaim around the country, Loucks is bringing his rollicking, heartfelt solo performance to New York in a way that only he can, through the eyes of a little boy growing up surrounded by baptisms (dunk, not sprinkle), the constant worry of the rapture coming when you aren't paying attention, and the terrifying fear of being the only one who doesn't believe.

Preacher's kid Jim Loucks draws from his own Southern childhood for this one-man show that follows a hellfire-and-brimstone Southern Baptist preacher and his family through golf in the cemetery, an altercation with a Hare Krishna, and jumpin'-up-on-the-front-pew-and-wavin'-your-Bible-style sermons.
