O Christmas Tea steeps holiday hilarity to rave reviews

UK comedy legends James & Jamesy are bringing their wildly popular holiday classic O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy back to Vancouver Island with a stop in Courtenay on Dec. 3.

Combining British propriety with an unabashed love for the unexpected, London’s three-time Impresario Award-winning duo steep an uproarious holiday theatrical comedy that delights thousands every holiday season.

Reminiscent of classic British pantos, O Christmas Tea is rich with wordplay, comic physicality, and cleverly crafted interactive elements, yet it is the duo’s boundless imagination and endearing chemistry that provide the real magic of this play.

“The Christmas season is the time of year when we are encouraged to dream big, embrace imagination, and celebrate childlike excitement for magic and merriment,” says Alastair Knowles (Jamesy). “With O Christmas Tea we’ve steeped together some of our favourite classic aquatic narratives—Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Jaws, Noah’s Ark, Titanic—and the result is this supremely charming and joyous show.”

James and Jamesy have already won just about every comedy award they can, and the reason is obvious: these two are exceptional. Stepping away from their off-Broadway debut in New York, the duo will perform 19 shows across Washington and Western Canada this December.

The show is set for Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre. Tickets range from $19 to $34, and are available at www.Jamesandjamesy.com or the Sid box office at 250-338-2430.
