Isaac Oliver’s Lonely Christmas


[tab title=”Show Info”]

3 Nights only!

The West Coast Premiere of

Isaac Oliver’s Lonely Christmas

December 14th-16th, 2017

Trim the tree, hang the stockings, light the menorah and slug the eggnog. Ring out this troubling year with NYC comedy connoisseur Isaac Oliver as he regales San Diego for the first time with stories from his hit debut novel, Intimacy Idiot (Best of 2015 – NPR), and tales of woe of holidays past. This unabashedly authentic storyteller’s take on the world and the season is as hilarious as it is moving, and intelligent as it is restorative. Oliver’s unique blend of poignancy, candor and levity is the perfect antidote to a year filled with crazy, and the craziness of the holidaze!

A rare talent who manages to deftly combine raunchiness, intelligence, hilarity, and heart. Brilliantly observant, funny, and wry.” – The New Yorker
