A&E FYI: Fruitcakes for funny, or: Renegade hosts second annual holiday party

Renegade Comedy Theatre begins the holiday season with its second annual holiday party from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. (Admission is free, but donations will be taken at the door.)

The goal of the evening is to raise funds to help support Renegade Comedy Theatre and its many programs, including Out of the Hat, the Renegade Radio Hour, a full slate of original and scripted comedies in its mainstage season and Tugboat Children’s Theatre – which features adult performers staging shows specifically for kids and their families.

There will be a “noisy” silent auction, a celebrity fruitcake cook-off and live entertainment from Renegade. The holiday party is sponsored by Cub Foods.

Doors will open at 6 p.m., with a social hour full of free food and drinks. There will be opportunities throughout the evening to put your bids in on great items in the Renegade Noisy Silent Auction. (You will have to be there to see how a noisy silent auction works....)

At 7 p.m., the Celebrity Fruitcake Cook Off will begin, as George Kessler, Mayor Herb Bergson, Mayor-Elect Don Ness and other local celebrities vie for the title of Yummiest Fruitcake – as determined by members of the audience.

Finally, at 8 p.m., the entertainment will begin as members of Renegade and Tugboat perform scenes from the past season. There will also be a free sneak peek at the brand-new Holiday Comedy Revue titled “Walkin’ in a Bergson Wonderland, or: I’ll Be Herb for Christmas.”
