"...Where this revue always finds its footing is in the improv. The cast—especially Michael Kosinski, who’s seemingly capable of defusing any over-zealous audience member while getting a laugh in the process—tackles any suggestions with enthusiasm and grace. Eileen Montelione too provides a signature wit and charisma that heightens each game to a level worthy of a Second City performance."

Chicago Stage Standard - Somewhat Recommended

"...Some scenes suggest the risks that could have been run, like two scent sprayers at Macy’s who describe the very different proposals they got from their guys.  Eileen Montelione introduces a good bit about Christmas on the South Side.  It segues into newscasters announcing the snow closings of some very strange schools.  There’s also the traditional song about surviving Chicago winters and how, despite it all, we wouldn’t have our city any other way."

"...I always enjoy good comedy and as anyone will tell you, I love to laugh ( they say “it is good for what ails you” and thanks to my laughter, I never ail) and despite the show not being what it claims to be- that is dysfunctional or holiday, I say ” who cares?” It is a laugh riot that will make you forget about that stupid gift for Uncle Fred that hasn’t been made for twelve years! It will make you forget about that bonus you thought you were getting! It will make you forget about the little mishap the other night! In fact, this show will allow you two hours to relax and just be the kid you are inside and laugh, laugh, laugh."
