Best Crackpot Preacher 

Reverend Ivan Stang

As leader of the Church of the Subgenius, the Reverend Ivan Stang keeps a shiftless schedule that includes making appearances at devivals (the church's answer to rock concerts), hosting the Hour of Slack radio show, and occasionally guest-lecturing. He does it all in the name of Bob Dobbs, a salesman from the '50s who's become the Church of the Subgenius's answer to Jesus. Stang, who recently moved to Cleveland from Dallas, rants and raves about the virtues of slacking off, but his main goal is to get you to join the Church and pay its membership fee. The thing we like about Stang is his honesty -- he doesn't pretend that religion isn't a business -- and he makes his sermons as entertaining and outlandish as possible.
