About this show

From award-winning humorist, playwright and National Public Radio commentator David Sedaris, The SantaLand Diaries starts when young man arrives in New York with dreams of being a writer for One Life to Live and instead lands a part-time job as a Macy's Christmas elf named Crumpet. From humiliating interview to elf indoctrination to scrapes with miscast Santas and obnoxious customers, the author's real-life experiences are merrily subversive and fall-on-your-knees funny. In Season's Greetings, a determinedly sunny Mrs. Jocelyn Dunbar takes pen to paper recounting the joys, the jobs, and the unexpected surprises of the past year -- including the arrival of her husband's illegitimate, gold-digging, Vietnamese daughter on the doorstep. Twisted, tragic and hilarious in its lurid revelations, Season's Greetings is an antidote to the chipper holiday newsletter of yore.
