2019 is our 15th annual Santa Survivor Improv Comedy Show. Santa Survivor is a parody of the Survivor TV show where tribes of elves get immunity or voted off the iceberg. The winning elf gets to accompany Santa in the sleigh spreading capitalism around the world. A core value of improv comedy is audience participation. Scenes are inspired by audience suggestions and audience participation (voluntary) on stage. Audience members can receive prizes for participating or just showing up.
