Ange Lavoipierre Zealot

Winner, Best Comedy Weekly Award, Adelaide Fringe 2020

Winner Best Comedy Weekly Award 2019 Adelaide Fringe 

Zealot is a demented excavation of the structurally unsound layer cake that is one woman’s memories of God. In it, award-winning comedian, ABC journalist and one-time true believer Ange Lavoipierre charts the course from ten-year-old evangelist to fully-fledged heathen.

Most of the ways God was explained to her have only inspired yet more questions. Does Santa believe in himself? Whomst amongst us will go to heaven? Was God the original herpes carrier? And is the blue Google Maps dot sentient? Zealot has answers and will give you plenty to believe in.
