"A crabby alternative to Christmas cheer...
An oasis of bile in a season of sappy sentiment." -- Time Out

JACKIE BEAT, everyone's favorite drag Scrooge, returns to NYC for her annual holiday show. From December 1- 3, the self-professed bastard child of "Weird" Al Yankovic and Bette Midler will premiere IT’S THE MOST MISERABLE TIME OF THE YEAR at The Laurie Beechman Theater (inside West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street -- at Ninth Avenue, accessible from the A,C,E,N,R,V,F,1,2,3 trains at 42nd Street).

Bah humbug! With IT’S THE MOST MISERABLE TIME OF THE YEAR, the undisputed queen of crass Christmas carols continues her mission to poison every sacred holiday tradition. The show will feature past audience favorites like Jackie's cocaine-fueled rewrite of “Let It Snow,” the pregnancy confessional “Santa’s Baby,” a menorah-loving “Jew Christmas," and the self-explanatory “I Saw Daddy Doin’ Santa Claus,” "Sleigh Ride in Leather With You," and "It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Syphilis.” The show will also feature some new medleys and some brand new ripped-from-the headlines holiday parodies. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa or Ramadan, an evening with Jackie Beat is the perfect antidote to holiday cheer.

It all started so innocently in 1998 with Jesus Christ, It’s Your Birthday!, a delightful non-denominational holiday tribute featuring such seasonal fare as "Sleigh Ride in Leather With You" and "Black Christmas." When the show was prominently featured in The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Right’s 1998 Report on Anti-Catholicism, an annual holiday tradition was born. Beat’s holiday shows, including How The B*tch Stole Christmas, Alcoholidays, Give ‘Til It Hurts, O Holy Hell, and Blew Christmas have been performed at venues nationally.

Award-winning drag darling JACKIE BEAT has been wowing unsuspecting audiences since 1989. She has toured with Roseanne Barr -- as the comic legend’s opening act -- including a 7-week run at The New York New York in Las Vegas; written for TV (Fashion Police, Hello Ross, Hype! and others) and collaborated on special material with the like of Roseanne, Rosie O’Donnell and Jennifer Coolidge; appeared in countless TV shows (Sex and the City), movies (Grief, Wigstock The Movie, Flawless, Adam & Steve) and Off-Broadway hits (Valley of the Dolls, Tell-Tale!). She has been named Best Drag Queen by New York Press and Best Live Performance by HX Magazine. Jackie is also a columnist, lead singer for the electro-rock band Dirty Sanchez, and the subject of the documentary film My Name is Jackie Beat including commentary from Joan Rivers, Margaret Cho, and Roseanne.
