The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

“There’s a little black spot on your head…”

So goes the latest ditty by a Catholic comedian Nick Alexander — dubbed by the National Catholic Register the “Catholic Weird Al.” I confess this guy is new to me, but his work is clever and pretty funny. (You can find out more about him at his self-titled website.)

Meantime, his video on Lent, below. Enjoy.

My first exposure to Nick was with his parody of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire”, and it’s all about the Ecumenical Councils and the development of Christological doctrine. It’s really a hoot.
We could use more of his sort of creativity and humor!
