General comic insanity periodically punctuated by hilarious lines. Don't take it too seriously or expect any niceties in the content, and you'll have a laugh.

Good (un)clean holiday fun! It's the demented, half-cousin to "A Tuna Christmas," with its small-town denizens holed up in Neuterberg, Iowa, instead of Tuna, Texas. They get raucous, so bring earplugs if you're noise-sensitive like me.

Description

Every year, insurance agent Bob Finhead’s whacked-out friends and clients stop by his small-town Iowa office for their annual holiday bash. The town mayor, the sheriff, the triplet farmer sisters, the stoner, the town floozy and the pastor’s wife have already RSVPed for this year’s event. But Bob has dreams of a bigger life and wants to escape their narrow-minded thinking. Will he be able to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional inventor and move to the big city, or will he come to realize how much he is the heart and soul of the town? Will any of this matter once the party starts, the bickering and fighting begin, and the drinks hit the floor?

Bob’s Holiday Office Party originated as an improv sketch 12 years ago and has since developed into a seasonal tradition with a loyal cult following. Each year audience members (dubbed “Bobophiles” by the Los Angeles Times) follow the show to its new location.

Co-writer Rob Elk, who also stars as Bob, says, “Every year we tweak the script a little, so there are a few surprises for those people who keep coming back.”
