Robin watched a 1971 performance by Klaus Kinski, who performed his monologue Jesus Christus Erlöser at the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin.

Here are a few quotes:

An audience member remarked that Jesus was meek. Kinski’s response: “Jesus didn’t just say shut your mouth! He took a whip and cracked him in the face! That’s what he did. You stupid pig!”
