With DJ Gommels and Michael Oaks

Seattle sketch mavens Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt (Dos Fallopia) are back with the 11th edition of their cult holiday show, chock full of dysfunctional characters, tacky costumes, and more wigs than Lady GaGa. This year's show tackles religion, politics, and polka:
*Country duo The Spudds give noir a new twist with "Double-Wide Indemnity"
*Game show "Who's Your Deity?" digs dogma with panelists Harvey Fierstein, Kirsty Alley, and Professor Dumbledore, hosted by Sister Mary Agnes.
*Get to know Michele and Marcus Bachmann up close in "Bachmann Xmas Overdrive"
*Ballard favorites The Polka Dots mangle the English language and popular songs, polka style.
*The Sequim Gay Chorus adds two new lesbian members and a name change (S.Q.U.E.E.L.)

Koch and Platt have collaborated as sketch-comedy partners for 21 years, and have penned shows like Deja Poo, Pretty Girls, Not Too Bright, Twin Sisters of Different Cul-de-sacs, Desperate Spuddwives, and Lard Potion No. 9. A London Connection review declared, "Could they be the long lost love of Doris Day and Divine? Big, brash, and completely mad...," and a San Francisco Bay Times reviewer proclaimed, "...two of the funniest, most irreverent comedians I've seen in years."
When they're not performing together, the two women pursue busy solo careers. Koch has recorded four solo CD's, , performs regularly on Olivia Cruises, had a song of hers sampled by JayZ, and composed the music for Off-Broadway show "27 Rue de Fleurus". Platt is well known to Seattle audiences as a standup comic, radio personality, and actor/playwright (Fat Girl Follies, Rocky Horror Show, Holiday Survival Game Show).
