You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch...and that's why you weren't invited to the Holiday Special of The Living Room!
There were no frowns or rhyming in this special edition. Those who made it out had a merry time with the likes of Matt Little hosting this jolly lineup:
a sketch by Delusions of Spandex
with special guest Chance Wesley (The Cabbage Patch Kid)
and a holiday musical medley by Abbi Crutchfield
Matt Little started the show the holiday way...noting that he practices kindness, generosity and goodwill toward man...when drunk.
In keeping with the minimally festive decorations behind him, Vince Averill wore black and maintained a serious face. He then dissected the complexities of the man who poops in his dumpster.
Chance Wesley, a Cabbage Patch Kid who did not sell very well this year, brought us the news, as he hears it from a shelf in Target.
Luke Thayer is disappointed that his phone is neither psychic nor does it believe in equality.
Hadiyah Robinson got the room so warm it gave her flashbacks of her grandma's house. We here at the Living Room believe strongly in old people jokes. Tell 'em before they're told about you!
Abbi Crutchfield mimed the song of You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch while holding up pics of a few Grinches she knows.
She then re-enacted a haunting scene to the tune of Baby, It's Cold Outside. When you think about it, couldn't every Christmas song end with someone getting stabbed?
Moody McCarthy did his Bing Crosby impression by making girls swoon under soft lighting.
The two and only Phaea Crede and Becca Jones of Delusions of Spandex closed the show with their signature originality and panache. The only thing funnier than a girl from the future is a girl who is belligerent about being from the future.
The lovely Hadiyah Robinson proved to have the brightest sweater and the best skills as she became the Funniest Comedian of All Time! She took home a lovely red pick-up truck with the name "Max" drawn on it. Sorry Max.
Help us ring in the new year with your crap resolutions on January 11th!

Let not beat around the bush, I'm da bomb. I'm Santa freakin' Claus! You wish you were with this!
Me and my posse are rolling through The Living Room this Friday. Postmark Cafe's the hot night spot for the North Pole Crew cause they have the best peppermint lattes.
The Living Room welcomes a stockingful of newcomers and three French hen regulars to our festive holiday show! Bring a taste for pumpkin-flavored coffee, and hilarious ho ho hijinx!
