FUCK, IT’S CHRISTMAS! – A Sketch Show That’s As Traditional As Austin.
We don’t get white Christmases in Austin, or Does it feel like Christmas yet? The holiday commercials and muzak might have come back, but in Austin the holidays roll out in a way that is anything but traditional. That’s the inspiration behind FUCK, IT’S CHRISTMAS, an evening of winter wonderland sketches with a sprinkling of weirdness in place of snow. I mean, is snow even really a thing?
Alex Jones will be stopping by with his truthified version of “The 12 Days Of Christmas,” Lt. Governor Dan Patrick will be reading Biblical Bedtime Stories, and Santa Claudio will be crashing your Thanksgiving celebration with premature Yule tidings. FUCK, IT’S CHRISTMAS imagines a world where people holed up in an HEB because the temperature outside has dipped below 70 degrees, dental hygiene gifts that get you high, and beggars who can be choosers.
Directed by Tom Booker, with technical direction by Mark Shoemaker and Holli Sampson. Featuring the writing and acting talents of Chelsea Beth, Tyler Bryce, Claudio Fox, Alejandra Gonzalez, Lance Hunter, Espi Rivadeneira and Bryan ‘Lubu’ Roberts. Music by Rocky Lane.
