Russell Dobular, Leal Vona, and Matthew Kreiner of End Times Productions’ “Naked Holidays”

End Times Productions' Naked Holidays 2011It’s the holiday time again — time for mind-altering eggnog, elves in open revolt, epic reindeer battles, Hanukkah carols, body-slams through boxes of prettily-wrapped gifts, and lots of strategically-placed stockings.

If you’ve ever been to Naked Holidays before, you know what’s up. If you haven’t been, you really should check this out.

***Note: the opening bit of music & the clips you hear on today’s podcast is from the first rehearsals of the show — you want to hear this live, and with a full band!*** Continue reading
