Did you know that Mr. Rogers was an ordained pastor? Yep, that Mr. Rogers, the beloved never-met-a-sweater-he-didn’t-like children’s TV host. What would it have been like to attend a church service where “Pastor Rogers” preached?

I was in the comedy act Mitch & Allen from 1982 to 1988. Which is why, to this day, people call me “Mitch.” Well, that and because my name is Mitch.  Riffing on what Mr. Rogers would be like as a pastor, Allen once ad libbed a few lines during a performance, and the audience loved it!  So we started wondering how we could turn it into a sketch. The answer came in the form of Mr. Deacon, a religious hypocrite who would be foil to Pastor Rogers’ laid-back zingers.
