About Roger Scott Jackson
AKA Brother Sam Singleton, Atheist Evangelist
Writer-actor Roger Scott Jackson’s Sam Singleton Atheist Evangelist is a comedic character, not a comedian. His shows are best described as one-man theater pieces. Those with strong views on the existence or nonexistence of God may see what he does as activism, though he insists his aim is simply to get some stuff off his chest: “Somebody else, who had to deal with snake-handling tongues-speakers as a child, might become a homicidal maniac or a teacher at a Bible college. I talk to the world’s most astute ticket-buyers.” He adds, “Though Brother Sam is not strictly autobiographical, he is fabricated from my own experience, which is to say, I start by telling the truth, then heap on lies.” Before Mr. Jackson became a full-time writer-actor, he worked at dozens of jobs, among them: shoeshine boy, fish gutter, taxi driver, copy writer, reporter, and teacher (English, speech, debate). In 2007, Mr. Jackson wrote Patriarchs and Penises and began performing in the Sam Singleton Atheist Evangelist persona. In the years since, he has appeared in hundreds of towns across America.
