Prop 8 - The Musical

Prop 8 - The Musical is a hilarious video from the site Funny of Die conceived and written by Marc Shaiman. It stars Jack Black, John C. Reilly, Allison Janney, Margaret Cho, Andy Richter, Neil Patrick Harris, Maya Rudolph, Marc Shaiman and many more...

Jack Black as Jesus is funny in of itself, but the whole thing is great. The comedic song-and-dance diatribe about the California ballot initiative to define marriage as existing only between a man and a woman is also a huge hit. In just one day of online existence, the Funny Or Die video “Prop 8­ — The Musical” has received more than 1.2 million hits.

Marc Shaiman is a composer of both film and stage musicals came up with this just after Prop 8 passed back in November, and he learned that the musical director of Sacramento’s California Musical Theater, had donated money to a Yes-on-Prop 8 campaign.
