The Weekly Stuff #310 – A Weekly Stuff Christmas Carol

Episode Summary

For our 2nd annual Weekly Stuff Christmas special, we give a live performance of a hilariously terrible Evangelist stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol, which shifts the action of Dickens’ text from Victorian London to the American Old West.

Episode Notes

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and welcome to our 2nd annual Weekly Stuff Christmas Special! After we gave a live-reaction to Pokémon Christmas Bash, the worst Christmas album of all time, on last year’s special, we’re upping the ante this year with a live performance of the worst adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol money can buy: A ‘Christian’ Carol, an Evangelist stage play that shifts the action of Dickens’ text from Victorian London to the American Old West, transforms the central theme from learning the value of kindness and generosity to accepting Jesus Christ as one’s lord and savior, and includes the phrase “mumbo jumbo churchy talk nonsense” a staggering nine times! With Sean in the lead role of Ebenezer Scrooge and Jonathan playing the surprisingly verbose narrator and the ‘Angels’ of Christmas past, present, and future, it’s an extremely silly good time as we read to you one of the few truly awful adaptations of the Charles Dickens classic. 

Enjoy, and come back next week for the start of our three-part ‘Best of the Decade’ series!
