From the quivering cowards who censored Mohammed in a bear suit comes a brash new comedy about Jesus:
As part of the network’s upfront presentation to advertisers, Comedy Central is set to announce “JC,” a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic father” and live a regular life in New York City.
In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, “the ultimate fish out of water,” tries to adjust to life in the big city.
“In general, comedy in purist form always makes some people uncomfortable,” said Comedy Central’s head of original programming Kent Alterman.
“Of course we don’t want to make Muslims uncomfortable. Those people are scary.”
I completely fabricated that last line of course. Kent Alterman didn’t say that. He just thought it to himself.
