TAKE THE WHOLE FAMILY TO THE HOLIDAY COMEDY, A TUNA CHRISTMAS!
In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. In other news, the voracious Joe Bob Lipsey's production of A Christmas Carol is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens, some you will recognize from Greater Tuna join in the holiday fun. Audiences who have and who have not seen Greater Tuna will enjoy this laugh filled evening. A Tuna Christmas has been called, "A hoot!" by The New York Times, and the NY Post exclaimed, "So funny it could make a raccoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett.... It's far too good for just Christmas."
