Dad’s Garage has been delivering a hilarious mix of improv and scripted comedy shows to Atlanta audiences for two decades now. The fan-favorite holiday show Invasion: Christmas Carol is returning to the Dad's Garage stage to celebrate the company’s 22nd anniversary of performances. This unique show combines combines the yin and yang of live comedy and scripted theatre into a one-of-a-kind hilarious holiday experience.
Here’s how this strange and wonderful show works: a cast of Dad’s Garage ensemble members perform a straight-up scripted adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale. BUT, every night a new improvised character shows up at the beginning of the performance to wreak havoc on the plot. This character could be anyone – Mr. T, Elmo, Martha Stewart, even Jesus – no one in the audience or the cast will know until he or she steps on stage. Naturally, hilarity ensues as the cast is forced to improvise around unexpected character while still pushing the scripted plot forward. The result is a sidesplitting 90-minute experiment in organized chaos in which anything is possible and nothing is off the table. Thankfully, the veteran performers at Dad’s Garage have the dual chops in scripted and improvised comedy needed to pull it off beautifully every night.Invasion: Christmas Carol is always absurd and irreverent (read: not for children), but it’s also packed with plenty of fun Christmas cheer that will have guests laughing themselves into the holiday spirit. There may be no moral to this Christmas tale, but there’s plenty of merriment to go around in this dynamic, hybrid comedy experience. Our pass also includes a complimentary adult beverage for your holiday imbibing pleasure.
