This year, Tamarie Cooper trains her zany wit on Christmas and this holiday-obsessed culture. It's never too early to put out the inflatable yard decorations or to spread holiday musical comedy cheer. But Cooper's quest for the "Greatest Christmas Musical Ever" quickly devolves into a politically correct "Secular Commemoration of an Indeterminate Event."
Searching for true holiday spirit, Cooper and the gang lead audiences, Holiday Inn style, through the great American holiday traditions — from family favorites Armistice Day, Arbor Day and Flag Day, to the greeting-card golems of Mother's Day, Secretary's Day and Great-Uncle's Day — with a stop on President's Day for giant savings on every mattress in stock.
A Very Tamarie Christmas will feature the wacky costumes, dance numbers and butt jokes that locals have come to expect, but with all the tinsel, ermine and plastic snow Houstonians have been missing. With a cast of dozens and a live band, Tamarie Cooper celebrates the holidays with as much angst and equivocation as you probably find in your own dysfunctional homes.
