THE CHRISTMAS SHOW YOU WON'T HATE

by Spot LA


Put The Nutcracker, SNL, The Ed Sullivan Show, and your favorite (& least favorite) Christmas tunes in a mixer. Whip that mess up, and you’ve got yourself a janky cake.

With John C. Reilly on the top.

Its satire, yet thoughtful. You won’t cry for Tiny Tim, but there’s a high possibility you will have
(drunken?) tears of hilarity streaming down your face. It is the Christmas show you’ve always
wanted. You no longer have to see your sister’s kids’ tap performance and think that is the best
this capitalistic season has to offer. It is for holiday lovers and haters alike.


It is The Janky Christmas Show.


And you’ve missed it for the PAST SIX YEARS.


You’ve missed the Shitty Nativity. You know the Nativity story, but told shitily.

Not to mention Monologue Man, The 12 Days of Christmas, “snow,” and gentle sprinklings of classic Hanukkah and Kwanzaa traditions.

Perhaps you’re like Pinkie Clause and not really feeling the holiday spirit the year? — With wildfires raging in Southern California, sexual abuse scandals in DC, Hollywood, and NYC, death and violence in the news everyday, Pinkie isn’t going to “DO” Christmas anymore. The world doesn’t deserve Christmas according to him.

But can we have The JANKY without Pink Santa?

John C. Reilly as Janky Marley tries to (re)warm Pinkie - and you up to the idea of Christmas with visits from Janky Past, Present, & Future + some Jewish Jello Shots!? The Positivity Cheerleaders will show you how to work through your anxiety in just one evening & for the very reasonable ticket price of $25! What if all you ever needed to get in the Christmas spirit was a good ol fashioned sing along?

THE JANKY is the perfect way to get you and your loved ones in the holiday spirit. Both heartfelt and irreverent with more singing, dancing, and real time shenanigans than our President’s twitter account!
