Isaac Oliver’s Holiday Show Lonely Christmas comes to San Diego for 3 Nights Only!
Diversionary announces their holiday show Isaac Oliver‘s Lonely Christmas December 14th – 16th. Performances run Thursday at 7pm and Friday and Saturday at 8pm.
Trim the tree, hang the stockings, light the menora and slug the eggnog. Ring out this troubling year with NYC comedy connoisseur Isaac Oliver as he regales San Diego for the first time with stories from his hit debut novel, Intimacy Idiot (Best of 2015 – NPR), and tales of woe of holidays past. This unabashedly authentic storyteller’s take on the world and the season is as hilarious as it is moving, and intelligent as it is restorative. Oliver’s unique blend of poignancy, candor and levity is the perfect antidote to a year filled with crazy, and the craziness of the holidaze!
Tickets are on sale ($25 – $30). Discounts are available to Groups, Students, Educators, Seniors and Military. www.diversionary.org/lonelychristmas
