TBB: This show is a classic holiday tradition in Atlanta for so many people. I love that you still have it at the Variety Playhouse even though I am sure you could sell out a larger venue. What does having the show at the Variety Playhouse mean to you personally?

Big Mike: The Variety Playhouse has become a second home to us. The staff there is like family. The sound system is phenomenal and Farrell Roberts is a master on the light board. There are other fine venues all over the city. But we enjoy the down-home vibe of the Variety for our holiday show.

TBB:Any special guests coming that you can tease us with?

Big Mike: Lil’ Santa and Mrs. C, our hirsute pal BigFoot and the hot and spicy Patricia Lopez (aka P-Lo) will all stop by. And featured vocalists include Bogey Thornton, Kristin Markiton and opera singer Heather Witt. And of course, the Parkview High School Marine Corp JROTC will be on hand to collect donations for Toys for Tots.

Excellent reminder Big Mike, Please bring an UNWRAPPED, NEW toy to give while seeing this show, which is gift to yourself! Get your tickets now HERE as this will sell out! See you there!
