On The Way To The Tomb

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Tomb

Using stand-up poetry, Glen Scrivener investigates the humour and irony surrounding Jesus’ resurrection.

Follow the women on the way to the tomb that Sunday morning, preparing to perfume a corpse but instead encountering the risen Jesus.

It’s the ultimate happy ending, the comedy plot-twist — death has been killed by dying. Easter laughter ensues because Jesus pioneers the ultimate “happily ever after.”
