Pittsburgh Fringe Festival! Shepherds Gone Wild w/ Joey Rowker


Shepherds Gone Wild

One critic called them “the dirty Wiggles”—said their act of defiance was nothing short of blasphemy. Another critic referred to them as “purveyors of filth”—saying their self-serving antics caused quite an uproar in the Christian community. But all these four, washed up, middle-aged comedians were trying to do was provide a little harmless entertainment to all those parents out there who are forced day-in and day-out to sit through countless hours of mind numbing childrens’ television. What’s so wrong with that?

After forging a friendship during the stand-up comedy boom of the 1980s, these four second rate comedians land themselves a gig as the wildly popular hosts of the Rising Gospel Television Network’s “Glorious and Wholesome Children’s Television Show.” Hoping to use the show as a stepping stone to propel their careers into television superstardom, their dreams are cut short by the harsh reality of the entertainment business. Time passes and there they remain—twenty some odd years later—still waiting to take that step. After learning their show is being cancelled due to lack of viewership, a simple twist of fate give the guys an opportunity to end their careers on their terms. So, they decide to get a little “creative” with their Christmas show. I mean, what’s the harm in that? It’s not like anyone’s going to watch the show anyway…right?
