About this show

It's a typical Christmas Eve at the Howard-McHogan household. The joyous eggnog drinking and caroling has been interrupted by a bearer of bad news. Grandma has been in an accident. She's at the hospital but is not going to last long without treatment and she can't get treatment until she has healthcare and she can't get healthcare because of her preexisting condition of being run over…wow, what tangled a web we weave. What can Howard-McHogans do to save Grandma? Will this really be her last Christmas? While the family is racing to the hospital, we take a look at what else is happening in the twisted world of Shantz Theatre. George Bailey gets the Bernie Madoff treatment, Frosty's all out of love, Bob Dylan revisits his Jewish heritage and the folks at TMZ get a wake-up call...or do they? Heck nobody really likes the holidays anyway, so why not laugh about it? Seriously, what's worse than buying presents nobody wants, getting homemade gift-cards, going to mandatory office parties and spending time with your creepy uncle who has been unemployed since 1973? Nothing. But laughing about it sure helps. So why not celebrate your holiday with us? At least we won't make you stand next to Aunt "inappropriate touch" Patty during the family photo.
