The Party’s Just About A Month Away…

mohp-banner-1-copyComedy lovers in the Chicago area looking for a way to shake off the madness of this wild and crazy year can ring in 2017 with a raucous good time at Mr. Olsen’s Holiday Party.

 Mr. Olsen’s Holiday Party is a classic holiday variety show featuring grown-up sketch comedy, live music, standup comedy, adult beverages — and The Mr. Olsen Dancers! It’s happening at Studio5, Evanston’s newest, classiest performance venue at 1934 Dempster Street (the SW corner of Dempster & Dodge).

mohp-pngPractical Theatre Company veterans Victoria Zielinski, Paul Barrosse and Dana Olsen will perform improvisational comedy sketches and topical songs from “The Vic & Paul & Dana Show”, accompanied by keyboard wizard Steve Rashid, drummer Rockin’ Ronny Crawford — and Don Stiernberg playing every stringed instrument imaginable.

The PTC’s next generation is also adding to the fun: standup comedienne Emilia Barrosse and Giggle Break’s own Daniel Rashid, plus singer-songwriter Eva B. Ross (whom North Siders have seen at venues like Katerina’s Jazz Club, The Beauty Bar and The Whiskey Lounge at 27 Live) and drummer Robert Rashid.

Mr. Olsen’s Holiday Party runs for two shows: a performance of the comedy-variety show on December 30 — and a New Year’s Eve party on December 31st featuring the comedy-variety show (including light food) followed by live music by the Studio5 All-Stars, who will keep the dance floor grooving into 2017!

Studio 5 has acres of free parking – and there will be a cash bar on both evenings.

The Trump Song!

Okay. everybody — sing along with us!

We love him, we love him,

He make our hearts go thump

Nos encanta el grande     

Y macho Donald Trump     

(We love the great and masculine Donald Trump)

He pulls the string that makes everybody Jump

Amamos a los testículos       

Gigantes de Donald Trump      

 (We love the giant testicles of Donald Trump)

 Trump es rico y loco          

When he is on the stump

On his competition

He likes to take a dump

The primary process for trump is a speed bump

Amamos a los testículos       

Gigantes de Donald Trump      

Sure he’s got a big ego

And to us he’s no amigo.

But, hey, what do we care?

He’s the GOP’S nightmare

He wants to build walls

Even bigger than his balls

But he’s muy bold and funny

And his cabelo’s the color of honey.

His huevos enorme

His cojones grande

He takes on each crisis

From Iran to isis

With answers he pulls out the hole in his rump

Amamos a los testículos       

Gigantes de Donald Trump      

TRUMP: SURE, I’VE GOT A BIG EGO

And to us he’s no amigo.

TRUMP: BUT, HEY, WHAT DO I CARE?

He’s the GOP’S nightmare

TRUMP: I’M GONNA BUILD WALLS

Even bigger than his balls

TRUMP: I’VE GOT STYLE — I’VE GOT CLASS

He’s an estupendo ass

Trump’s leading the polls

Though they nip at his heel

TRUMP: NO BOOK BUT THE BIBLE BEATS “ART OF THE DEAL”

He’s a rich racist fuck

TRUMP: BUT MY NUMBERS DON’t SLUMP!

Amamos a los testículos       

Gigantes de Donald Trump      

Amamos a los testículos       

Gigantes de Donald Trump      

 Amamos a los testículos       

Gigantes de Donald Trump
