The Netflix original series God’s Favorite Idiot will offer subscribers a hilarious experience from start to finish, and here is everything fans need to know about the comedy-fantasy title.
The streaming giant has never let viewers down when it comes to consistently putting out side-splitting comedies that will have subscribers rolling on the floor laughing with every entry. Some of these notable laugh-out-loud titles include Inside Job, Space Force and Disenchantment.
There are plenty of reasons why fans should check out God’s Favorite Idiot on Netflix, but what really makes this hysterical affair stand out above the competition is its star-studded cast. The line-up of talent for the comedy includes Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Leslie Bibb, Kevin Dunn, Yanic Truesdale, Usman Ally, Ana Scotney, Chris Sandiford and Steve Mallory. In addition, the series was created by Falcone, who also serves as executive producer along with his wife and costar, McCarthy.
The fantasy TV sitcom has been described as absurd, witty and irreverent, as well as being hailed as a comedy of biblical proportions by the streamer itself. The first season of the comedic endeavor will consist of eight exciting entries, with another eight episodes still to come as the streaming powerhouse ordered a total of 16 when God’s Favorite Idiot was first greenlit in December 2020.
God’s Favorite Idiot synopsis
God’s Favorite Idiot follows a man named Clark, played by Falcone, who gets struck by lightning from an unusually angelic cloud and gains the ability to glow. This causes his coworkers, which includes his girlfriend Amily, played by McCarthy, to come under the assumption that the situation he is experiencing is divine, meaning it may be somehow related to God.
It is then revealed by an angel that Clark is the messenger of God, and he has a very important task to take on moving forward. This ordinary man must hear the lord’s words and make sure to get them to the people in order to prevent the Apocalypse from going down.
Here is the official synopsis:
In God’s Favorite Idiot, Mid level Tech support employee Clark Thompson finds love with co-worker Amily Luck at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God. Also, there’s roller skating, a lake of fire and an impending apocalypse.
