For those looking to escape the sickening sweetness of most holiday specials with a completely different sickening feeling, Jet City Improv is proud to announce the return of UNCLE MIKE RUINS CHRISTMAS, Fridays and Saturdays at 10:30 from November 25 through December 23.
As it has since 2007, every performance of this hit comedy gathers cheery and authentic Christmas memories from members of the audience that are then re-enacted live on-stage with a sappy saccharine charm. But every new season means more fresh meat, and it’s only a matter of time before Uncle Mike – with all of his obscenity, vulgarity and bearded debauchery – shows up to work his depraved magic. He defiles everything he touches until the once-precious memory is forever changed into something downright offensive, raunchy, and obscene. Before the dust and spittle can settle on the now-twisted Christmas of yesteryear, Mike has moved on to the next unsuspecting anecdote, covering a whole host of memories in one night like some sort of belligerent Santa Claus.
To celebrate ten holiday seasons under the tyranny of Uncle Mike, ten tickets to each performance will be made available for just $10 each on a first come, first-served basis starting at 12:01am on November 25 at jetcityimprov.org. Audiences in attendance at this year’s shows will also be able to purchase “Uncle Mike’s Gingerbread Cookies” – adorned with a very unconventional frosting design – at the Jet City Improv concessions stand while supplies last.
