Vidiots welcomes back Founding Member comedian Ify Nwadiwe for a whole day of ghosts, Scrooges, Tiny Tims, and hard-learned Christmas lessons with Ify’s Carol Fest! Get ready to rattle some chains with three infamous renditions of Charles Dickens’ classic tale of wealth redistribution with the Muppets, Bill Murray, live podcast tapings and more holiday merriment set to be unwrapped. Ify has blessed us, one and all!
Sing and dance along with Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim in this musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic ghost tale. Ebenezer Scrooge (Albert Finney) is the definition of a miser. He is rich, but completely stingy with his money, and he exploits the good nature of his employee Bob Cratchit (David Collings). On Christmas Eve, however, Scrooge is in store for a rude awakening when he is visited by the ghost of his old business partner, Jacob Marley (Alec Guinness), who informs him that he is going to be visited by three ghosts, including the Ghosts of Christmas Past (Edith Evans) and Present (Kenneth More).
