For more than 20 years, comedians Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt have combined their considerable talents as the duo Dos Fallopia. For hardcore fans or the simply curious, there is no better showcase of their sketch comedy chops than their annual Christmas tradition, Ham For the Holidays. This year's outing -- dubbed Close Encounters of the Pork Rind -- includes such celebrated characters as mother-daughter country duo The Spudds, the tiny but proud Sequim Gay Men's Chorus, and the angst-ridden Slam Poet. If you love LGBT comedy, song parodies, cheap laughs and razor-sharp zingers, you might need an extra serving of Ham for the Holidays. Warning: Although no hams are harmed during the production of the show, young minds might still get warped. Best to leave the kids at home. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
14/48 is 14 plays created, written, designed, scored, rehearsed and performed in 48 hours. Each weekend, seven playwrights write seven plays on a randomly selected theme on Thursday night. 12 hours later, seven directors each blindly select a play and the required number of actors to cast it. After 10 hours of fevered rehearsal with seven designers and seven musicians, the plays premiere that evening. The 8:00pm Friday audience submits themes, one of which is randomly chosen, and the process starts all over again. It all adds up to 14 plays in 48 hours you’ll never see again, but will never forget.
