Rod Is God
The one thing that you'd expect from a comedy play starring three-quarters of Late Night Gimp Fight is that it would be funny. You might also it to be a bit shocking, or at least a bit surprising. So a shame then that this is not really any of the above.
This is kind of like a flatshare sitcom pilot, where the sit is that Rod's dozy housemate has come up with a bonzer moneymaking scheme: to start a rumour based around the idea that Rod is, well, God. Only half-a-dozen people fall for it until they hire a sleazy PR man who builds it into a national sensation, causing a crisis over whether they should use their power over the nation to do good or make money.There's clearly an allegory at the heart of this, which is that religion can be good or bad depending who's in charge, but greed and PR are always evil. Fair enough.
The jokes generally feel like they were added in after someone read the script and said, "it's good but it needs to be funnier". That's the overall problem, the ever-present feeling that the reason we're all here is because the guys decided to do a play. Creaky writing and stilted performances stop this from being truly enjoyable (although the video links between scenes are excellent) and the bottom line is that it's nowhere near as enjoyable as other shows such as, for example, Late Night Gimp Fight.
