50 Ways Jesus (Almost) Ruined My Life

Is eternal life worth not having one now? What happens when you rebel against your progressive parents by becoming a Jesus superfan in your teens and then 10 years later decide walking on water is a lot more hassle than taking the ferry? Are there lasting side-effects of over-indulgence in religion in your formative years? And can it really still be screwing up your sex life in your 50s even though Mormons have so many babies?

In this hilarious yet poignant show, Sharon VS traces the root of all her mid-life crises to divine self-radicalisation in her teens. Plus we offer the chance for one lucky audience member to find out how to upgrade their Afterlife, just in case it’s all true after all. (It’s not a pyramid scheme, it’s just in-person network marketing).

This show for everyone who’s ever questioned their life choices and found a better answer than “what would Jesus do?”


The show may feature other performers, with or without religious trauma.

This show is not a replacement for a varied and balanced education

In case of lasting side effects, do not consult your primary spiritual care provider
