Imagine all the things you’ve ever wanted to say about your family but wouldn’t. And probably shouldn’t! Well Laurie Kilmartin’s got you. Her jokes about family and parenthood are some of the most honest, incisive, vicious and hilarious anyone’s ever written. In addition to being a fantastic stand-up who has performed on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden and Comedy Central, Laurie also spent many years as a staff writer on Conan, and has written two wickedly funny books including The New York Times best-seller Sh*tty Mom. And she can currently be seen as a guest on Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s new streaming show Gutsy on Apple TV+. Laurie Kilmartin is one of the best joke writers out there and we could not be more excited to welcome her to Corvallis.
Ebenezer Scrooge is the CEO of an incredibly successful company, but that success comes at the price of the wellbeing of his employees, his community, and his soul. One faithful Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his old partner, Jacob Marley. Can Marley and the Three Spirits of Christmas change Scrooge’s heart with their visions of Past, Present, and Future? Will the story end as tradition dictates, with the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge, the triumph of the spirit of Christmas, and a happy ending? Or will the spirit of Bah Humbug reign supreme after his night of visitations fails to change Scrooge’s heart, resulting in a tale of tragedy and revenge? The audience will decide!
