‘Tis the season: Christmas specials this month

Show And Tell present a trio of alternative Christmas evenings this month. Kicking off on December 2nd, Bush Hall Presents features sets by Nish Kumar, Holly Walsh and Fin Taylor alongside a headline set from the Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Tim Key.

The following week, we present the first of two festive commissions at Battersea Arts Centre – A John Kearns Christmas sees the double Edinburgh Comedy Award winner present a new, seasonal, solo show. Inspired in part by his audio recordings in 2011 and 2012 of his family Christmas dinners. Josie Long Hosts Christmas This Year will see the triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee lead a collaborative show as friends and fellow performers alongside Josie offer up their tales, highlights and nightmares of hosting a festive gathering in years gone by.
