Lady Caroline Lamb had met Carlo
Parcelli, it is he whom she would have
declared "mad, bad, and dangerous to
know" instead of Lord Byron. Carlo is
a force of nature and an unique voice
in the literary world, whether writing
and performing poetry or monologues
that are certain to challenge and keep
awake the most indifferent of
listeners. I am fortunate to have met
him, read him, seen him perform, and
count him as a friend and
- William F.
DeVault, US National Beat Poet
"Mad genius Carlo Parcelli's work is
pure fire, where intellect, mythology,
bright irreverence and cold hard
reality converge and boil over in an
electric chemical reaction that will
leave you contemplating where you've
been, why it felt so good, and eager
to return for a second sizzling." - John
spoken word artist,
& founding editor
of Crisis Chronicles
"For five decades Carlo Parcelli has
been extending and reinventing the
Modern Epic, which Ezra Pound famously
defined as 'a poem with history.' But
to history Parcelli has also added
epistemology and, like Sir Isaac
Newton, religion and science. Only,
unlike the dour Newton, Parcelli is
ferociously funny and hilariously
perverse!" - Jack Foley,
novelist, playwright, &
editor of FlashPoint Magazine

What actually transpired Easter
Week/Passover 33 A.D.?
The Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was a Hoax!
Culled from First Century Texts and
drawn from dozens of biblical and secular sources,
these monologues tell a revisionist tale of what
transpired in Judea, Easter Week/Passover 33 AD and
beyond during the reign of the Roman Emperor
In the classical
Petronius, Rabelais, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Lenny
Bruce, Guy Ritchie, James Joyce, David Jones,
Cockney and the world's myriad cryptolects, The
Canaanite Gospel strips bare the New Testament canard
of the Resurrection of Yeshu of Nazareth and pokes a
stick in the eye of the Synoptic Gospels.
Full Performances Available A full performance/reading
of 12 to 14 monologues
runs approximately 80 minutes with a 10 minute
break. For performances Mr. Parcelli appears in
full 1st Century A.D. costume.

From the Canaanite Gospel:
[A]nd as for Simon, knew me a lot a Simons
But I don't truck wif no thug Simons.
And as Virgil casts the same by Cumae cooze,
Ain't I the literate fuckin' guinea hopes to read in me palm
Mugshots a Tibi on silver stamp
Me little cuntie magpies bein' attracted to shiny objects.
I prosper as me people, just as we are.
What cast out Saul is timely to me.
Who to slay his ten thousands and how to proceed.
No bloody timeless fiction a good will
When none's to ground.
--- Jesus Barabbas
Power arrests indulgence
So best indulge
In the torments power affords.
And such prissy disposed
Can suck teardrops from me cock
As close to ichor be they get.
--- Tiberius Julius Caesar Augustus
And I be, 'go yourfuckin'self, mister.
Do I the looks a Samson.
Work one your stunts
Wif pulleys and levers
'Stead all day be winchin' up lady Magda's skirts.'
--- Johanna Chusa
So I beg your pardon, I knows where me knifes been and me mouf
And how bofe got there by the laws.
--- Simon Kananaios
Me eldest son, Ace, I heard
Was killed at the edge a the world
Not a full year in the ranks,
Head stoved in by a naked blue man
Wif his pecker hangin' out
Or that's the tellin'.
What of us to credit publicans and fishmongers
Over rule and the law;
A corpse a some vagabond
What promised deliverance
And can't even keep his own.
And he, "Bitch if ye knew the gift
What say a thee water
Thou wouldn' balk
But straigtway be wet about thy well."
And ta gall says I, "Sir, 'pears thou has little
Ta draw wif and this well be deep."
--- Nalda, the Samaritan Woman
If I tell you me doubt was warrant
How will I be fed?
If I tell you Yeshua was me twin
How will you say he does not live in me?
--- Juda Didymus Thomas
No mistake. I loved him dear. But
Not our addled rebbi to this purpose
As what I have set in motion.
--- Mary Magdala
