Son of God. Local celeb. Small-time hustler. Back again for a second season. Black Jesus.
Have you ever thought of what Jesus’ life would look like in modern-day times? What about in modern-day Compton? Adult Swim has made this outrageous scenario an actual hilarious reality in its hit live-action series, Black Jesus. Jesus, played by Gerald “Slink” Johnson, is on a mission to spread love and the gospel throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small group of loyal downtrodden followers.
Created by award-winning writer/producer, Aaron McGruder, and starring Charlie Murphy, Corey Holcomb, John Witherspoon, Kali Hawk, Andra Fuller, Antwon Tanner, Andrew Bachlor, Angela Gibbs and Valenzia Algarin alongside Johnson, Black Jesus is jam packed with star power!
Season 1 is now available on DVD. The 2-disc release includes 10 uncensored episodes, blooper reel and episode commentary. Witness his glorious return to TV for season 2 of Black Jesus on Friday, September 18th at 11pm on Adult Swim.
