Welcome to the Church of the High Priest
Spreading the love from the Deep South… of England, Folkestone twinned with Alabama, the High Priest with comedy and music wants to touch you deep inside!
The irreverent Reverend, the man in the black suit and shirt with the white collar is a high energy entertainer, an uncompromising comedian using pornographic, political and offensive comedy with hymns to get the crowd laughing at subjects they never thought they were allowed to laugh at, a musician with highly relevant social and political songs, sometimes performing covers by other artists from across the years is here to spread the love and touch you deep inside. Religion has never been so much fun!
“The High Priest outshone some of the best comedians on the circuit to win the Squealing Pig Comedy Competition in June. His style and delivery is exceptional, his character is strong and likeable so the audience really relates to him and his material is current and well thought through. Totally hilarious and yet thought provoking, The High Priest is a true showman!”
Julie Flynn – Pig In Paradise Comedy Competition
The High Priest is also a producer and writer of over 14 albums since his first release titled ‘Picture That’ in the year 2000 by Some Bizzare, whilst being managed by the infamous maverick Stevo Pierce, received critical acclaim across the board.
Currently the High Priest is finishing a new comedy album titled “One man’s comedy is another man’s terrorism”, to be released late 2015 or early 2016.
