Comedy duo James & Jamesy to bring “O Christmas Tea” to the Royal Theatre


Looking for a comedic Christmas show to celebrate the holiday season? Head down to the Royal Theatre on December 17.

James & Jamesy present their uproarious holiday-themed comedy, O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy, as part of their Pacific Northwest Tour. Billed as “a rollicking Christmas romp through a world steeped in tea,” the show promises to appeal to Monty Python and Dr. Seuss fans alike.

After writing a letter to Santa requesting tea, the duo must deal with the catastrophic repercussions that come from having their wish granted. Audience members of all ages join them in their action-packed quest to save the world, ever finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them, and their hopes, afloat in a sea of tea.

Aaron Malkin, who plays James, added that the duo will be incorporating more of the vibrant fun, meticulous choreography and playful Christmassy adventures that sold out houses last year.

“We have new developments to make the whole family squeal with joy: dazzling costumes, floor-to-ceiling projections, new songs and choreography, and magical effects, providing more adventure and wonder than ever before,” he said. “While awash in holiday sparkle, this show has delight enough for Santa-followers and abstainers, both.”

Touring Act Racks Up Accolades

James & Jamesy have toured across North America and the UK since 2012, performing their original works – including High Tea, 2 for Tea, and In The Dark – earning rave reviews.

Among other accolades, the physical comedians are winners of the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Ensemble (2016) and 2-time finalists for the Just for Laughs Best Comedy Award.
