Liverpool: quest for comical clerics
Comment Email Print
 Liverpool's comedy festival is searching for a Jewish rabbi and a Catholic priest to make up a team of wise-cracking spiritual leaders. The organisers have so far found Sikh, Hindu, Methodist and Anglican would-be comics. But no Jewish or Catholic clergy have come forward. The Liverpool Comedy Trust has vacancies for three or four people who will be given master classes by professional comedians, before performing in a one night gig at the city's comedy festival in July. "This project is a unique way of celebrating the many faiths in Liverpool," said Gillian Miller, chair of the Trust. She said: "We have encouraged all faith groups to take part and we've worked closely with them to make sure the event is both acceptable and accessible to them." The city's Lord Mayor Councillor Ron Gould also pledged that the show would be done in "good taste."
