How do you get SIX MILLION followers on Twitter? As someone who spends all day most days on social media, I’m staggered by the very notion. It must require divine intervention… of sorts.

David Javerbaum has achieved it, with help from above, with his satirical but often deeply profound @TheTweetOfGod account, which he started in 2010 on the back of his comic book, The Last Testament: A Memoir by God, and which subsequently spawned the hit 2015 Broadway play An Act of God. Beyond pseudo-religiosity in 140-280 characters, Javerbaum is also a 13-time Emmy Award-winning writer whose credits include The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Late Late Show with James Corden and some of the Tony Awards’ most memorable recent opening numbers (including “Broadway: It’s Not Just for Gays Anymore!”).

But back to God… After successful New York runs in 2015 and 2016 – with Jim Parsons (TV’s The Big Bang Theory) and Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) as the Almighty – and numerous other US and international productions, An Act of God now receives its British premiere with comedian Zoe Lyons as the Almighty, assisted in her efforts to clarify the Ten Commandments by Archangels Matt Tedford (best known as own comic creation Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho) and Tom Bowen.

After a performance last week at The Vaults, I was joined by writer, cast and director Benji Sperring for more blasphemy and belly laughs. Watch and share the full video below. Unforgettable!

An Act of God continues at The Vaults until 12 January 2019. Click here to purchase tickets.
