The House of Polyester Worship and Horizontal Throbbing Teenage Desire makes it's presence known to the masses as the Reverend Billy C. Wirtz brings his distinct style of comic blasphemy to Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for hilarious evening of blues-tinged comedy. With a variety of songs including "Grandma vs. The Crusher", "Cousin Cupcake's Got the Blues", and "Mennonite Surf Party", the blues just doesn't get much funnier than this. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi


Review Text Reverend Billy C. Wirtz's Sermon from Bethlehem (which was recorded at a live concert in Bethlehem, PA) is consistently hilarious. Wirtz's lyric writing and ability to put across his jokes make him seem like a rock & roll Dave Frishberg. Despite the religious allusions, Wirtz's subject matter ranges pretty wide, including toleration of others, a very witty allusion to his problems with women of all occupations, a tribute to his grandmother (who, according to the story, died while yelling at a televised wrestling show), and two songs that star Elvis Presley. A fine boogie-woogie and blues pianist and an excellent singer, Wirtz is quite entertaining and well worth discovering. ~ Scott Yanow
