Please give me a name to this song I just heard

I just heard this on the local NPR station. Lyrics were about the opening of the seven seals and in the chorus, the singer sings "I'm the Revelator, I'm the Apostle John." And no, the song was not John the Revelator. The singer was pretty gruff, on a level with Tom Waits but I don't think it was him. I did lyrics searches on Google and found only a dozen versions of "John the Revelator".

Does Anyone Put On A Show Like Tom Waits?

When Tom Waits plays live, he really puts on a show- with banter, jokes, stories, etc- as you can hear in the opening to "Nighthawks at the Diner". Does anyone else perform in this style- in the sort of jazz bandleader/comedian role? [more inside]
