Jesus Christ Is Coming To Comedy Central

Even though Mohammed’s cameo on “South Park” didn’t go over so well, Comedy Central is prepared to show that it doesn’t discriminate when it comes to offending religious groups. Next on their list? Christians. Mr. Jesus Christ himself is going to be starring in his own series called “JC,” from the producers of “The Office” and “American Dad.” It will show a misanthropic, video game-obsessed Christ trying to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic” father and find his way in New York City. Not the resurrection Christians had in mind, I suspect—I’m guessing that some of JC’s devout disciples may not take kindly to seeing their savior playing “Grand Theft Auto” and eating take-out. But it sounds like a comedic gold mine to me. The execs at Comedy Central say the show is still in the early phases of development, so they are not yet concerned about the reaction to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were public stoning and/or crucifixion in store for them. No one said comedy martyrdom was easy. So what do you think about “JC”? Hilarious or blasphemous?
