Jerry Springer – The Opera is a story of triumph, tragedy and trailer trash. The infamous Jerry Springer is shot by one of his guests and goes to Hell. In Hell, the Jerry Springer show continues but with guests such as Jesus, God and Adam and Eve. Eventually, God asks Jerry for help judging mankind. Jerry accepts his offer to reign alongside him in Heaven and the two opposing sides fight over Jerry. At first, Jerry pleads for his life with a series of glib homilies, but eventually makes an honest statement which resounds with his audience. Heaven and Hell put aside their differences and join in a hymn of praise to all life.
