Mr. Sinus Xmas Variety Show

You were probably on top of this already, but Sunday is Ladybird’s 90th birthday (that being the first lady and not Hank Hill’s dog). While a 90 year old dog would truly be extraordinary even in dog years, 90 in human years is no mean feat. Remember: Jesus only clocked in at 33. So if you’re looking to get in a little pre-holiday celebrating Sunday, why not hoist a few to the living LBJ? It’s the Austin thing to do. Another uniquely Austin thing to do Sunday night is the Mr. Sinus X-mas Variety Show down at the Alamo Drafthouse on Colorado. Once again, Jerm, Owen and John will be goofing on a treasure trove of holiday-themed television and film specials. The show includes over 40 clips from classics like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “The Fat Albert Christmas Special,” and “A Christmas Carol,” as well as lesser-known gems like the “Star Wars Holiday Special” and “Christmas Evil.” All are woven into the centerpiece of Frank Capra’s beloved 1946 classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” but don’t expect to get misty-eyed with anything but laughter. Also included in the evening’s festivities are sing-alongs, drinking games, and free milk and cookies. The early show starts at 6pm, but if you don’t want to miss Hank Hill’s dog there’s another one at 8:30.
