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

Quotes & Highlights
- “Funny, fierce and immensely entertaining.” --New York Daily News
- “The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups in many a season.” --New York Times
The public and private mythology of an iconic Republican family is challenged when their "black sheep" liberal daughter announces that she's planning the publication of a memoir dredging up a pivotal emotional crisis in their shared past. Playwright Jon Robin Baitz, author of The Substance of Fire and creator of the hit series Brothers and Sisters, compellingly examines the many faces of truth and the tangled ties that bind in this incendiary Tony Award-nominated drama.
