      Gods Cowboys - The Reserection

      Reuniting for the first time in 23 years for a special fundraiser. *** (see below)Born out of an act of God, Gods Cowboys roamed the comedy plains of Australia from1992-96. Slim, the snake oiled preacher; Buck,the desperado deacon; and Billy, the free range altar boy, cowboy evangelists who spread their love-thy-neighbour and eat meat doctrine to thousands of believers.  Gods Cowboys are George Catsi, David Delves and John Knowles. The show was an evolving comedic take on masculinity (generally lack thereof), popular culture and politics wrapped around a satirical look at God and religions – lots of songs, spit and satire.   A comedic and musical tour de force that formed it's own genre - Cowbaret. Supported by Good Tom Wallace who will do a 30 min musical set from 7.30 and hosted by Marko Mustac and Lou Lou Pollard Pamela Payne SMH 1993 said: “Gods Cowboys are assured, dynamic performers with a wicked sense of irony ... They play it straight from the holster with diabolical accuracy ... images of damnation are wonderfully observed .... these three performers create riotous comedy...they demolish without mercy all that their outward pose supports.Their method is ironic; they preach a method of sharp comic conception. They take the stage by storm!"  Newcastle Herald 1994 said it with conviction: "...quick delivery of one liners that recalls the Marx Brothers. Want some footage and reminisce back to the days before HD and 16:9 *** All proceeds from this event are being donated to the family of John Knowles (Billy in Gods Cowboys). John's wife Ronelle has a malignant cancer that is incurable, meaning lot's of uncertainty up ahead.  We are donating the funds so they and their 4 children (aged 8 to 13) can have some resources to find time to create some joy together.   You can donate even if you cant attend by going through the buy tickets process. There is an optional donation button. Contact us if any issues or questions.   ***
