The World’s Most Successful Megachurch Imposter
Joel Osteen is one of the most famous televangelists in the world. A Houston based pastor, Joel is famous for his arena sized congregations, his globally broadcast sermons, and more recently, his refusal to open his church after Hurricane Harvey. Even Oprah is a fan. In this episode of Fame-ish, Vice meets Michael Klimkowski, a struggling comedian in LA with an uncanny likeness to the famous pastor.
After successfully crashing a sold out Joel Osteen event in 2017 in character as Joel Osteen, Michael has gained notoriety as the only Joel Osteen Pastor in the year. Will he ride this title to fame?
