Irreverent comedy is the best kind of comedy, especially when it focuses on the holidays. Think about it: Now is a time of joy, happiness, sadness, silliness, contemplation, thievery, and mixed emotions all washed down with plenty of mixed drinks, which, when rolled together can create a combustible combination ripe for the sketch comedy of local yuksters Bully Mammoth. As the six-person crew is fond of saying, “Nothing is safe.” Expect the holidays to be picked apart with uproarious mockery and dry wit. Twisted? Like a candy cane! Now that’s getting into the holiday spirit.
Catch the annual show at 8 p.m. Saturday, December 27, at Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 West Rio Salado Parkway. General admission is $10, and students pay $8. Visit www.bullymammoth.com.
