Eli Bosnick

Eli Bosnick is a comedian and podcaster with two shows. God Awful Movies, in which Eli, Heath Enwright and Noah Lugeons team up for a weekly, Mystery Science Theater 3000-like dive into bad religious movies in a misguided attempt to prove that if god existed, his PR couldn’t possibly be this bad.

Eli’s second show, The Scathing Atheist, delves into theistic attempts to intrude on the secular world in an unflinching expose on just how juvenile the whole god thing is.

In his spare time, he does magic tricks.
