Combined Artform presents The Santaland Diaries in San Francisco. The comedic one-man show based on David Sedaris' essay has been performed by the company every year since 2002. The Santaland Diaries stars David Sinaiko, who was previously nominated for a Critics Circle Award for Best Solo Performance. Sedaris delightfully skewers parents, children, holiday consumerism and even his own cynical protagonist. This hilarious piece captures the true holiday spirit of excitement, stress, wonder, disillusionment, hope, disappointment and humiliation that represents the real experience of this special time of year.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Will Franken is an astounding character comedian who makes almost everyone else in his field look like lazy chancers.” -- Chortle: The UK Comedy Guide
- “You can't take your eyes off these inspired outpourings.” -- The Guardian
Fresh from a highly successful run of performances in the UK and on his way back to England, Will Franken has just a brief amount of time left in this country to regale you with his patented form of one-man theatrical hilarity. With his long-term return to Britain just around the corner, this marks a final chance to catch Will Franken in all his surrealist and absurdist glory with this brand-new show: Tough Jobby, Boot: Tis Yule.
See and hear an entirely new plethora of characters and vignettes making their debut in Franken's repertoire, including Glaswegian Jack Rabbit, a self-described professional eavesdropper (who only leaves you alone if you invite him to join the conversation); Exxon Mobil executives surrender to the Occupy movement and sign a treaty in Golden Gate Park; shy British lads invite girls to dates at the Museum of Modern Fruit; and – in an homage to his greatest personality defect – Franken murders people in line at a burrito stand out of impatience, admits his guilt on the stand in order to hurry the trial along, and opts to nix the lengthy appeals process and go ahead and die – all in time for Christmas!
One of the 15 best reviewed performers of Edinburgh 2012 according to The British Comedy Guide (Four stars Scotsman, four stars Guardian, four stars Chortle UK, four stars Independent, four stars Times of London, four stars Sunday Times, among many others), as well as San Francisco's “Best Comedian” (SF Weekly), “Best Alternative to Psychedelic Drugs” (Bay Guardian) and “genius” (Chronicle).
