Tonight: Holiday Anxiety-Relief Spectacular

The Upright Citizens Brigade spins improv out of your worst holiday memories



    Tonight: Holiday Anxiety-Relief Spectacular

    The ChrismaHanuKwanzakah Holiday Anxiety-Relief Spectacular is part good-cause gift market, part dark-side-of-yuletide comedy show, and no mean feat to spell. It all goes down tonight at Galapagos Arts Space in Dumbo.

    Members of the Upright Citizens Brigade will be on hand to take any holiday family-dysfunction memories you’re brave enough to offer up – awkward moments over turkey, terrible gifts, drunken revelations, and so on – and turning them into improv’ed skits. Meanwhile, you’ll be able to shop a selection of quality handmade goods curated by Global Gifts That Matter, with proceeds benefiting the anti-poverty nonprofit Global Giving Circle, and not a single item over $100 (plus plenty in the  $10-15 range) from organic chocolate to jewelry, and handbags. Check out the online shop here.
