Actor/Comedian

Provenza writes: "I did about 10 minutes of anti-religion material on a special on Comedy Central called 'Pulp Comics' in which I have a priest hitting on a 13 year old boy in a confessional, and the Last Supper done as a Friar's Roast.

"In my [standup] act, I do a half hour or so of the ridiculousness of religion, and lambaste the Catholic Church in particular.

"I point to how irrational it is to have any reverence for religion at all:

"We look at the ancient Greeks with their gods on a mountain top throwing lightning bolts and say, 'Those ancient Greeks. They were so silly. So primitive and naive. Not like our religions. We have burning bushes talking to people and guys walking on water. We're ...sophisticated.'"
