NYC/Philly-based comedian Kelly McCaughan (HBO, Apple TV+) presents Catholic Guilt. Does daddy Jesus's naked body on the cross make you wet? Spoiler alert: So will this show! (No, seriously, there's water). We dive into that and much more: Losing our virginity in the most holy way, abortion, a bowling experience that leads to impure behaviour, and the list goes on.... Through audience participation, cringy personal recounts, and stand-up adjacent clowny performance, Kelly's raw, dirty, hilarious show exposes the impossible standards of being Catholic. We will laugh. We will sin. Will we make it to hell together?
