'There's probably no God ... but I wish there was. I've got some things I need to ask him.'

Based on Marcus Brigstocke's award-winning Edinburgh and West End show, God Collar focuses on the 'God-shaped hole' that opens up in Marcus's life following the death of his best friend. Exploring his own issues surrounding faith - his lack of it, his need for it, some people's waste of it and what good purposes it might serve if he could get hold of it - he rails against the holy trinity of Abrahamic religions (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) while atheists, agnostics and believers of all faiths get it in the neck too. God Collar is a scathing look at modern faith that will leave you laughing out loud and examining your own beliefs in equal measure.

'As luck would have it, my relationship with God is as dysfunctional and peppered with resentment and recrimination as ever, so this should make for good writing.'

MEDIA REVIEWS

Religion has always been a tempting punchbag for stand-ups but agnostic Marcus Brigstocke smacks it with intelligence, cheek and a discernible degree of grace - London is Funny

“Has potential. Needs to focus more.”

I bought this book because it seemed to me that myself and Marcus were in the same boat. I too had a desire to believe in something 'up there' and even after being raised a Catholic I still hadn't found... More
