    Hosted by Johnny Legend, it’s CHRISTMAS in ACIDLAND! Don’t miss the wildest Christmas show ever! Equal parts kitsch & nostaglia, this two-part seasonal spectacular is one one-of-a-kind—haunting, hysterical, and heart-warming all at the same time!!

    The show features Christmas-themed errata from the golden age of live television, including animation shorts, musical interludes (Liberace, Ricky Nelson, a serene Rosemary Clooney, a bizarrely maudlin song from none other than Joan Rivers, a “Little Drummer Boy” duet from the mutually nonplussed Bing Crosby and David Bowie), Bob Hope cracking wise on Elvis and gay cowboys, Howdy Doody visiting Santa’s workshop, and greetings from the Reagans (Ron, Nancy, and future turncoat Patty).

    CHRISTMAS IN ACIDLAND (Part 1)
    A fantastic plethora of vintage Yuletide television insanity featuring ABBOTT & COSTELLO, RONALD REAGAN, ROSEMARY CLOONEY, ERNIE KOVACS, BOB CUMMINGS, LIBERACE, JACK BENNY, EDGAR BERGEN & CHARLIE McCARTHY, PAUL WNCHELL & JERRY MAHONEY, RICKY NELSON, OZZIE & HARRIET and BOB HOPE!
    73 mins.

    CHRISTMAS IN ACIDLAND (Part 2)
