Silver bells are ringing at this seasonal standup performance, but the jolly jokester gets upstaged by an event far worse than bad holiday comedy: a murder! With humbug hovering over the holiday, it is up to the unamused audience to unravel the mystery of whodunit like last year’s tacky knitted holiday sweater. While murder is making the night not so merry and bright, you must gather information, bribe your guests for clues, and solve the crime before this comedy act becomes a tragedy!
