Turkey Schmurkey…We J’adore The Ham For The Holidays!
Which is our clever opening sentence sort of way of introducing our annual rave/plug for y’all to to go see the two and only LISA KOCH and PEGGY PLATT, aka DOS FALLOPIA, the divine Seattle comedy duo that’s been delighting us (and the country) since the Nixon Administration. These funny ladies tour the country but they’re best known locally for their inspired annual holiday show, HAM FOR THE HOLIDAYS which returns to the Falls Theatre at ACT for the second year in a row after years down at the Theatre Off Jackson.
The 2014 edition of “Ham” is subtitled “Fear The Bacon” and features your favorite Dos Fallopia/Ham characters including the Sequim Gay Men’s Chorus and the insane country/western, mother/daughter duo, “The Spuds” offering their version of The Nativity. Lisa, Peggy and the Ham Gang are a must see holiday event….it’s like someone put SCTV, Carol Burnett and Auntie Mame into a huge comedy blender. Here’s all the poo:
Who: Tongueinchic Productions / ACT Central Heating Lab
Where: ACT, Falls Theatre, 700 Union Street, Downtown Seattle
When: December 4 -21, 2014
Ham for the Holidays contains adult humor and themes. It is recommended for ages 14+.
Directed by David Hunter Koch, the long-running cult series (think Carol Burnett on crack) has found a hammy holiday home at ACT’s Falls Theatre, in collaboration with the Central Heating Lab. Platt and Koch create an evening chock full of wickedly funny social satire, musical parody, and redonkulous characters.
