About this show

Charles Phoenix's Retro Holiday Slide Show is a live comedy performance created with vintage slides found at thrift shops and flea markets. With his abundant joy, sharp wit and gleeful commentary, Phoenix supercharges the classic living room slide show into a hysterical/historical celebration of mid-century American holiday culture. Experience how we decorated, dressed, dined, drank and smoked during the holidays in the 1940s, 50s, 60s & 70s. Celebrate New Year's Day with the most bizarre rose floats ever; Easter mixing cocktails in a motel bathroom; and 4th of July fireworks at Disneyland. Dress up for Halloween and carve a jack-o-lantern with a suburban dad, then live the tragic life of a Thanksgiving turkey. Attend a Christmas bondage party, learn how to make a toilet paper Christmas tree, visit Southern California's most bizarre theme park, Santa's Village, see who got the best toys on Christmas morning, and much, much more.
