A heaping helping of subversive holiday spirit will be served up by the Bull Skit gang this month.

Seasonal skits during Bull Skit’s Christmas-themed shows on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22 and 23, include some coal-shovelling elves, a parody of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford sharing a powder addiction with Frosty the Snowman, and Santa Claus battling a young Ebeneezer Scrooge.

Favourite characters Alice and Sarah and the Bar Story Boys will also drop by to wish everyone a happy Christmas.

And the musical guest is alternative local rocker Garrett Olson, who will perform some songs with powerful melodies and emotion-charged lyrics.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the shows at the Scott Block starts at 8 p.m. (includes mature language and adult themes).

Tickets are 23 ($18 students/seniors) at the door or in advance from www.BullSkitComedy.com.

The Against the Wall Theatre troupe is also available for parties or staff development exercises. For bookings, call Jenna at 403-872-6706.
