About the Show
'Santasia' is a series of comedic holiday skits in the vein of 'Saturday Night Live,' blending Yuletide snark and sentiment.
Nothing is sacred in this litany of bits which satirize everything from putting up the Christmas lights to the Magi squabbling about their gifts. Featuring silly choreography, on-point holiday parodies, sketch comedy, and Rankin/Bass-inspired claymation shorts, the multimedia 'Santasia' is a festive seasonal show.
"The scenes range from sit com-y exchanges at holiday meals to comically uncomfortable and erotic dances in elf garb. There is no through-line; Christmas is the garland stringing the show together, and for the most part it works. While many of the scenes are amusing there are also soliloquies performed by the six men sharing their favorite Yuletide memories. Most are not as poignant as perhaps intended, which tends to disrupt the otherwise smooth rhythm."
