Chas Dean Heretic

Heretic

Chas Dean Heretic

God knows, religion is much in the news lately. You know, that “personal and private matter” that people don’t want to talk about – except when they won’t stop? Well, Chas Dean is mad as hell about it, and he’s stepping up to deliver a sermon you won’t forget.

Making his Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut in 2019 with I’m With Stupid – A One Man Show, Chas showed the world he isn’t afraid to put himself under the microscope. Now, he’s back to turn his attention on the business of religion. Yes, business. And business is good, it appears.

Just how many ways can religious sex education mess with your head? Why should everyone date a lapsed Catholic at least once? How could an upbringing like this possibly prepare you for modern political analysis (and how are George Pell, the Liberal Party and Donald Duck involved)?

Come hang with the Heretic. He’ll make you a believer.

'Hilarious anecdotes, razor-sharp observations, and painfully honest personal stories… An excellent and highly enjoyable debut show.' Stage Whispers
