Tuna in Austin?!? It's true. It's true. It's true.
The hometown holiday hit you don't want to miss.

Everything's bigger in Texas, including the folks and family we all know and
love! It’s Christmas Eve in the Lone Star state and radio station personalities
Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report local news on the Yuletide activities
that have gripped their little whistle-stop of Tuna, the third smallest town in
Texas, where the Lion's Club is too liberal, and Patsy Cline never dies. What’s
to be done about Joe Bob Lipsey’s disastrous Christmas Carol pageant, a
sabotaged yard-decorating contest, and a mysterious phantom on the loose
and spreading havoc? With quick-change zaniness and quicksilver one-liners,
CTC all-star actors Scot Friedman and Rick Smith introduce us to twenty-two
of the wildest citizens of one zany town bringing all the “joy to the world” that
make the holidays so special. Oh, holy night!

"A hoot!" - The New York Times
"So funny it could make a racoon laugh affectionately at Davy
Crockett. It's far too good for just Christmas."
- New York Post
"The hilarity never lets up." - The Village Voice

Two actors. Twenty-two characters.
One hilarious holiday night!

Starring Scot Friedman and Rick Smith
