The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived (virtually!) to set the record straight.  After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (assisted by Her devoted angels) answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation, such as: why did She decide to create the universe, which sports team does God choose when they all pray to Her for a win, and what does She think of Kanye West?

From the multi Emmy Award-winning head writer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and creator of Twitter’s massively followed @TheTweetOfGod, this hit comedy treats audiences to a hilarious side of divinity unlike any other.
