Oh John Safran my hero

Yippeeeeee. TV4 is going to be screening John Safran vs God. We hired it from fatso, and it is the best darn thing I've seen for ages - maybe ever.

Anyone who watched the brilliant John Safran's Music Jamboree on TV1 will have some idea of what to expect. John Safran vs God is a documentary series of John's pursuit of religion. It is hard to tell how genuine John Safran is, but I look forward to being able to finally discuss it with people.

Some highlights are when he tries to join the KKK (John is Jewish), John taking peyote, John taking out a fatwah on Rove... all fab.

Go take a look at John's website and pleaaaaaaaase watch the series. They haven't said when it will screen, but should be soon. Or hire it. Fatso has 2 weeks free trial which is very blimmin cool.

john safran is so cool. I've watched the series over here and loved it. I keep seeing him in melbourne, the other day I saw him when drunk and nearly went up to tell him he was great and then realised that would be lame...

Rosie! I hope you at least stalked him a little bit.

I remember his big break on this Aussie show called "Around the World" or something... they sent amateur film makers around the world and each week they had to make a 3 minute film. One of the best was when JS got an African witch doctor to curse his ex-girlfriend. She was very upset.

Just watching it now. Fantastic!

Surprised at the sense of humour of the Sheikh Omar Bakri who (didn't quite) put the fatwa on Rove.

Ah bless, isn't he the bomb? Just the whole - I hate Rove because I got shafted for Pink scenario is brilliant.
