Trim the tiny tree, hang the single stocking, and mull the homewine — it’s time for Isaac Oliver’s Lonely Christmas! Join gay humorist, pale neurotic and Ars Nova Artist-in-Residence Isaac Oliver for a little holly-jolly-melancholy with his very own classic holiday special. The holiday season, with its great music, crisp weather, and countless opportunities for passed cheese, is best enjoyed with a lover, yes, but a little cheer can still be salvaged for the single. Count down to Santa’s arrival with Isaac as he tells brand-new stories in addition to old favorites, with the help of live music, games, special guests, and high falsetto.

With Stacey Abeles, John Behlmann, Roe Hartrampf, Roger Lirtsman, Dan Loeser, Emily Walton, and musical guests The Gay Agenda. More to come.

This performance comes to you as part of Ars Nova’s Project Residency initiative to help artists get unique projects off the ground.

After nearly a year’s hiatus, we’re starting up the show again. New stories, old favorites, constant sweat and fogged-up glasses.

September 6 & 7, 8pm, at beloved-fabulous Ars Nova. I’d love for you to come!

I was a guest on my handsome friend Austin Mitchell’s new podcast Broken Legs last week — a lot of process, Post-It, and porn talk. Click to listen.
