1. Where did you grow up?

Devon, England.

Luke 24.

I love the elation, surprise and humor of Jesus’ resurrection appearances to his bewildered friends.

It asks and answers some deep questions about God with great humor, and Morgan Freeman is great as God.

I perform illusions – from card tricks to sawing someone in half with a power saw.
