Best of the Day: The Scott & Patti Christmas Special

Posted by Julie Garisto on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 at 8:02 AM

Those of us over, um, 30, have fond memories of holiday specials ­— whether they involve flashbacks of Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin crooning “O Holy Night” with a highball and cigarette, or Karen and Richard Carpenter singing sweetly by the hearth in matching turtlenecks.

Local cabaret duo and "mother-and-son" cabaret act Scott & Patti are bringing us back to those seasonal variety shows with their own evening of comical yuletide cheer.

Don your ugliest holiday sweater and head to freeFall for The Scott & Patti Christmas Special , a sassy spectacle with glittering costumes, audience participation, special guests and classic Christmas tunes.

Starring Matthew McGee and Scott Daniel, the show should be both naughty and nice — and loads of fun.

7-8:30 p.m. tonight. $18. freeFall Theatre Company, 6099 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. 727-498-5202.
