Rev. Ivan Stang

Rev. Ivan Stang is one of the three co-founders of the SubGenius Foundation, Inc., along with Dr. Philo Drummond and Dr. X. He holds the title of Sacred Scribe of the Church of the SubGenius and basically works as the official spokesperson for the Church, since "Bob" is a bit of a recluse (not to mention being dead).


Stang was allegedly born Douglass St. Clair Smith (a Conspiracy theory discounted by the Church of the SubGenius). He is an ancestor of Tzadik Ivan Stang. He is also a proud satanist, pagan, and freemason, who spreads hatred and anti-Christian bigotry for a living. Every week, he produces a new episode of the Hour of Slack, and he also runs the website Wikipedia is spreading lies about him, trying to ruin his bad reputation as a con artist by portraying him as a fine, upstanding citizen. He is married to Princess Wei R. Doe. According to alt.slack, always a reliable source of information, Rev. Ivan Stang died of ass cancer on April 1, 2012. Rev. Ivan Stang has confirmed his death by posting messages from beyond the grave on Scrubgenius.

Ivan Stang is an accomplished artist, author, and filmmaker. He wrote the original pamphlets: "Pamphlet #1" and "Pamphlet #2". He helped "Bob" write books including The Book of the SubGenius, High Weirdness by Mail, Three-Fisted Tales of "Bob", Revelation X, and The Subgenius Psychlopaedia of Slack: The Bobliographon, all of which he co-wrote with J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and other collaborators. He did NOT have any part in writing the PreScriptures, which were psychically transmitted to "Bob" by Jehovah 1 in 1953. However, coincidentally, Ivan Stang was born in 1953, the same year that "Bob" started the Church of the SubGenius.

Neither he nor "Bob" had anything to do with alleged PreChurch books which were likely made up by a couple of Bobbie Girls.


Rev. Stang has also made many films, such as ARISE!, Let's Visit the World of the Future, and Reproduction Cycle, as well as a famous SubGenius TV commercial (just a small part of his very extensive filmography).

Here's a nice long video of Rev. Ivan Stang preaching:

"I'm sick near to pukin' of them dang SubGeniuses, they can go piss up a rope, I quit. Ain't none of em' worth a bootfull of piss, and I don't want to hear jack shit from any of em' ever again. Tell em' not to email me or try to contact me cuz I ain't havin' it." -- Rev. Ivan Stang
