Starring comedians and actors, Aaron Malkin as character James and Alastair Knowles as character Jamesy, are thrilled to present this holiday staple and ignite imagination, holiday spirit, and overall joy within audiences.  

“Theatre is in its essence an exercise in imagination, a suspension of disbelief. O Christmas Tea focuses on, and plays with, this distinction,” said Knowles.

“We want adults to leave feeling lighter, more playful, and a deeper connection not only with their companions, but also with the entire community that shared the mesmerizing moments in the audience.” 

As described, comedy legends Malkin and Knowles have been flooding auditoriums with laughter and excitement for over a decade—earning themselves multiple awards for their tea-themed comedies and global popularity.

They’re renowned for their impeccable timing, flawless physical comedy and movement skills, and endearing chemistry.

This duo is promised to deliver a night of unbridled hilarity that will leave your cheeks rosy from laughter and your spirits soaring with festive cheer.

“We are thrilled to bring friends and family together. Particularly at this time of year, we are reminded to dream big, embrace imagination, and celebrate a childlike excitement for merriment,” said Malkin. 

“And for audiences that have already made O Christmas Tea part of their traditions, there will be some surprises we look forward to sharing!”

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make this wonderful comedy a part of your holiday traditions!
