Mr. Deity: The Everyday Life of the Creator

Not long after the devastating tsunami of 2004, Brian Keith Dalton began working on a skit that morphed into Mr. Deity, a satirical look at our Creator and his everyday struggle to manage his new creation. The first episode (above) aired on iTunes and the web in early 2007, and straightaway, we encounter Mr. Deity and his sidekick Larry bumbling their way through the Genesis story and related theological questions. (Also don’t miss the pair trying to figure out how to light their new world.) By the second episode, we’re already skipping forward to the New Testament and Mr. Diety recruiting a skeptical Jesus for an important job. Talk about awkward.

57 episodes have since followed, including the most recent installment — Mr. Deity and the Philosopher — released just last week. You can find all episodes easily on iTunes. When it comes to the web, Seasons OneThree and Four appear officially on YouTube, and Season 2 can be best viewed via this informal collection.
