Tom Joyner is one of the show’s famous fans – he says he doesn’t miss a show, and in fact, watches them twice. Johnson says that although he’s poking fun as JC, it’s not because he’s not a believer himself.
“I believe in God,” he says. “I come from the Bible Belt. I come from sanctified church.”
Like most shows on Adult Swim lineup, Johnson says it shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
“It’s a lighthearted show. We”re not bringing fire and brimstone. We’re bringing laughs, heart and love. Just check it out.”
