Editorial Reviews

Adopting a persona that's equal parts revival preacher, professional wrestler, social satirist and keyboard wizard, Reverend Billy C. Wirtz is unlike any other performer on the touring circuit. A comic genius and American musicologist, he blazes a trail across the country playing nightclubs, comedy clubs and performance art centers, bringing his First House of Polyster Worship services to legions of fans and new converts. Sermon From Bethlehem, being released on DVD as well as CD, documents Billy at his schizophrenic best, careening non-stop through a selection of old comic favorites (Grandma VS The Crusher, The Visitor, Roberta) and soon-to-be classics (Female Problems, Do The Toleration). Recorded in 2005 at Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem....Pennsylvania. The DVD has a significantly different program than the companion CD - see Amazon's music store for track listing and details. Approximate running time is 72 minutes, which includes interview with Reverend Wirtz Audio options include Dolby Digital Stereo and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound

4.0 out of 5 stars Musical Satire and Mayhem January 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For the Reverend Billy fans who cannot get to a live venue! Rev Billy, for the great unwashed, is the best Blues playing musical satirist on the road today! How can you not like a 6 foot, 6 inch heavily tattooed blues player whose title is "Head of the First House of Polyesther Worship, Throbbing Horizontal Teenage Desire, Our Lady of the White Go Go Boots, Bubbling 40 watt Lava Lamp, No Pizza Delivery After 12, Shrine of the Wrestling Jesus in Chromosone North Carolina" and all said in one breath? The Rev is great fun, but you gotta have a sense of humor and accept satire as satire. His CDs are fun also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed the mark... December 29, 2007
Rev. Billy is a talented musician and funny comedian. I own all his CD's and listen to them often. Somehow his material didn't translate to video very well. Maybe because the production was rather homemade. Or because it looks like it was taped in someone's garage. As a fan I enjoyed it, but will probably pass it on to friends, it's not worth watching again. It might be better to rent it from Net Flix instead.
