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.
