Advent Day 21
"A homeless girl in Ireland is tweeting for you?"
Just ‘cause it’s Christmas…
Something about me is that I simp full time for the New York alt-comedy scene. And so back when I was full of life and excitement and joy, I would spend as many of my evenings as I could holed up in the handful of venues who had the business sense to let NYU grads in their 20s put on comedy musicals about their dreams and anxieties (this sounds like a drag but I promise it’s not). We’ve already seen comedy giants emerge from this scene (think Bowen Yang and Ziwe) and I believe Matt is part of that extremely talented group who I think should take over all entertainment from here on out. We can’t just keep telling stories based purely on the wigs we have lying around.
So while Matt Rogers’ sexy musical Christmas showcase “Have You Heard of Christmas?” may not be taking place this year, the show lives outside of time thanks to the internet.
Here’s your listening homework:
Watch these musical numbers from the comfort of your couch, or give yourself the full basement theater/blackbox experience by sitting on the world’s hardest chair and drinking warm white wine from a plastic cup.
