Unitarian church sold, will become a comedy club called ''God, That's Funny''

Posted: Friday, June 07, 2002

MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) -- To some parishioners, the sale of the local Unitarian Universalist Church to become a comedy club is no laughing matter.

Two local mortgage brokers, now nightclub developers, bought the church building to convert it into an upstairs comedy club called ''God, That's Funny'' and a downstairs rock club, ''Rock Sanctuary,'' both opening in August.

The Rev. Lucy Ijams and parishioners say they are -- at the least -- ambivalent about leaving their 108-year-old brownstone, but relieved at finding a buyer willing to pay $525,000.

The church will worship in temporary quarters until a new building is erected.
