The Immaculate Big Bang

 

Review


Imagine stand-up comic Bill Santiago as a character who has walked off the set of Seinfeld, half Jerry, half Kramer, and all Brooklyn Puerto Rican. In The Immaculate Big Bang, he has audiences accompany him on his journey following his father’s death and the subsequent the birth of his daughter, Cielo. He wonders about the confirmation bias involved in finding the number 33 everywhere afterwards—his father’s favourite number—and wonders whether religion or science can best assuage a mourning son. Digressions include (a perhaps overly long) exposition on quantum physics versus classical physics, Schrödinger’s cat, Buddha as a deadbeat dad, and The Cat in the Hat as sermon material. The audience reliably tittered through the more universal themes of mourning, parenting, and religion bafflement—the Latino pride was strong. Touching and engaging, a little rough. Reviewed by Jay Smith.
