Who is Rev. Billy Talen? Bill Talen, also known as Reverend Billy, is the Green Party candidate for Mayor of New York City. Talen lived and worked as a performance artist in the Bay area for twenty years. Moving to NYC in the early 90s, he started up the Life After Shopping Church, with a 40 voice choir. Casting himself as the anti-consumerist televangelists, his comic "retail interventions" got him outlawed from all the Starbucks in California. In NYC, the church membership grew after 9/11, as citizens looked for a kind of fellowship independent from organized religion. Also, Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me) produced a Nationally released documentary about Billy called What Would Jesus Buy?. Now Talen's mayoral campaign is leading the rise of the 500 neighborhoods.
