British comedy and Christmas merriment

James Jamesy bring the holiday spirit to Chilliwack with British humour

Fancy a little bit of British humour this Christmas season? O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy is exactly what you need and it’s coming to Chilliwack’s HUB International Theatre on Dec. 8 and 9. The “rollicking Christmas romp through a world steeped in tea” is presented by James and Jamesy, a multiple-award-winning Canadian duo who have performed over 500 times across Canada.

In O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy, the pair write a letter to Santa requesting tea and must handle the “catastrophic repercussions that come from having their wish granted,” reads a press release from James and Jamesy. “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 plays James and says the show is designed for adults, but is perfect for the whole family.

“We [provide] the opportunity to celebrate childlike excitement and merriment, [and] we get that through the kids’ excitement at Christmas,” he said. “And one thing we do with the show is we try to bring that to the audience so they get it for themselves.”

“Something that’s been said about our shows is that we remind adult audiences of the children they once were and still are,” he added.

New developments add to the glitz and glamour of the already exciting show. Dazzling costumes, projections, songs, choreography and even magic provide “more adventure and wonder than ever before,” said Malkin in the release. “While awash in holiday sparkle, this show has delight enough for Santa-followers and abstainers, both.”

James and 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 and lifetime fans. Among other accolades, the physical comedians are winners of the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Ensemble (2016), and two-time finalists for the Just for Laughs Best Comedy Award. They are 20-time “Best of Fest” winners.
