super-powered revenge christmas #1



Joseph Scrimshaw's production company, Joking Envelope, presents Bill Corbett’s new holiday show, “Super-Powered Revenge Christmas #1”.  In a dive bar on Christmas Eve, a disgruntled comic book writer fights with his collaborator (and ex-girlfriend) about his grand vision: a giant comic book reboot of Christmas. Thrill to tales of a brooding Santa! Shudder at the untold might of George Bailey! Question the relevance of Frostina the Snow-woman! Playwright and comedian, Bill Corbett (of Rifftrax and Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame) tackles the age old question that plagues both comic books and the holidays: "Does this all make sense?  I mean, really?" This December, it's on like ret-con.

Starring Emily Gunyou Halaas*, Mo Perry, Joseph Scrimshaw, Matt Erkel and John Middleton
