Cultural References

  • The title is a reference to the 1988 film The Last Temptation of Christ.
  • Krusty's return to the underground comedy scene may be considered an homage to George Carlin, Lenny Bruce and Bill Hicks, known for their harsh, cynical comedy material in which they frequently criticized corporate America. Numerous parallels between the two can be drawn, such as Krusty adopting an all-black wardrobe (similar to Hicks and Carlin), and his more cynical, truth-driven material.
  • There is a poster of Kamp Krusty in Bart's room.
  • During Krusty's retirement speech, he quotes bits from "To an Athlete Dying Young" by A. E. Housman.
