The Gospel According to Judas

Comic Fringes, Series 10 Episode 3 of 3

Short story series featuring new writing by leading comedians, recorded in August at the BBC's pop up venue at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Tonight, an irreverent tale by satirist John O'Farrell: imagine if Judas Iscariot spent his 30 pieces of silver on a creative writing class and re-drafted the books of the Gospels...

A former comedy scriptwriter for Spitting Image, O'Farrell can occasionally be spotted on such TV programmes as Grumpy Old Men, Question Time and Have I Got News for You. He has written four books: "The Man Who Forgot His Wife", "May Contain Nuts", "This Is Your Life" and "The Best a Man Can Get".

Produced by Kirsteen Cameron.
