All Is Forgiven: A Non-Religious Comedy Show About Religion, QED – Queens, 7:30pm – 9pm

Want to confess? If not, how about hearing others do it? On a stage. Join some of New York’s best performers and storytellers for a comedy show about how belief runs deep in everyone’s lives. Religion guides some on how to live, who to marry, afterlife planning, and decides whether or not you can be president. So let’s all get together to see some good folks divulge personal anecdotes about the impact of religion on their lives. This show is not aimed at converting, convincing, or destroying, just relating. Whether it’s positive, negative, or somewhere in between (purgatory?) this is a show for anyone who wants some catharsis in a world where everything you do seems wrong. $10.
