A Christmas Gift by Matthew Garlin tells the story of a Christmas Eve plan gone awry. A man (caregiver for his mother) wants to ask his girlfriend to marry him and has come up with an elaborate plan involving his best friend in a Santa outfit and a lovelorn waitress’ assistance. As things start off, the man’s dependent mother and an old couple change the process. On top of all that, his girlfriend also has a surprise for him.
The Noir Before Christmas by Tofer Carlson is a hard-boiled detective comedy, where the detective takes on a case looking for Rudolph’s missing nose without realizing that her client is in fact an elf.
A Dickens of a Christmas Carol by Josh Black was written in the spirit of a touring Charles Dickens in mind. It’s shorter than the novel and includes a dose of modern comedy. It’s a story everyone has heard of. Though most of the humor is modern, Dickens… stays true to the original story structure of the novel and brings in some characters we don’t always get to see.
