In his latest solo show, Canadian rapper Baba Brinkman uses rhyme and reason to put questions of religious belief under a scientific lens. It’s a smart and entertaining survey of what gives us faith, and Brinkman’s confidence and delight in wordplay make it a pleasure to sit back and go with his flow.—Adam Feldman

Running time: 1hr 30mins. No intermission.

Baba Brinkman is one of the smartest performers (and people) anywhere.  The Rap Guide to Religion is in a league with The Rap Guide to Evolution. Brilliant, funny and thought-provoking. Don't miss it!

Didn't know what to expect going in, but I found Brinkman's show to be intelligent, irreverent, and a ton of fun. I am considering going a second time.

I am not a big fan of rap music, but am a big fan of Baba Brinkman. The Rap Guide to Evolution is an entertaining education in evolutionary psychology as it informs the why and wherefore of religion in human history and current events. Atheists and believers can join in celebrating this informative tour of the new science of religion.


Very entertaining, beat-loaded and fun ! You should see the show before it closes at the end of Feb 2K15

What if you could turn on brain receptors you didn't know you had, while having a ton of fun, too? You CAN if you make it to Baba's show; it's been said before but the man is utterly brilliant! Don't miss this show!

Extreme thought provoking enjoyment. A fluid skillful performance, full of clever and hilarious insights, Baba is a master of unpuzzling the most complex original concepts in an entertaining and engaging manner.  

Wow. Such an amazing show and performance by Baba Brinkman I had to see it twice. Definitely mesmerizing, provocative, and entertaining, i look forward to more from this brilliant writer and performer.You don't have to love rap to love this show.

Mind-blowing! Intelligent, funny, and great beats. You'll learn a lot and enjoy the ride. A whole new genre of theater and a fantastic night out. Not to be missed!

Caught this in the UK.  Thoughtful and thought provoking, info-packed with Buddha-shaking beats and catchy hooks that any fisherman might envy.
