The former head writer and executive producer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, David Javerbaum lives up to his reputation for chutzpah in God: A Memoir as he steps into the mind of God and delivers a series of gags, inspired parodies and straight out blasphemy.
The New York Times calls Javerbaum ‘fearless’ saying he delivers ‘…100 percent guaranteed foolproof offense at times (there is no benign way to discuss Jesus and masturbation in the same sentence)’. In his role as court jester in a world of apologizing public figures, Javerbaum is unapologetic, entertaining and offending in equal measure.
It’s not all about religion though - God has opinions about politics as well as sex. On Barack Obama: “Obama is My Messenger, the Deliverer; the Messiah, but only from January 2008 to February 2009.” As for shouting His name during intercourse - He wishes people wouldn’t overdo it quite as much. And so it goes - Javerbaum finds everyone’s button and then leans hard. It’s what makes him one of the greatest satirists of the age.
Javerbaum’s work on The Daily Show earned him an Emmy Award, three consecutive Emmy nominations, and a 2000 Peabody Award. He also has an Emmy nomination for his work as a staff writer for The Late Show with David Letterman. Javerbaum is the co-author of America: The Book and Earth: The Book, as well as author of the pregnancy parody What to Expect When You’re Expected. Javerbaum boasts a huge Twitter account: @TheTweetOfGod.
