Friday To-Do: The Main Thing's 'A Fertle Holiday'

THE MAIN THING'S 'A FERTLE HOLIDAY'
8 p.m. The Joint. $20.

With Election Day 2012 now thankfully in the rearview mirror, the folks behind The Main Thing (The Joint's in-house comedy team) have retired their recent "Electile Dysfunction" play and are unveiling what is sure-to-be a witty homage to the Christmas season, "A Fertle Holiday."

The two-act original comedy will probably hit a little close to home for those of us here in the hinterlands who have family residing on one of the coasts. It concerns the Fertle Family Reunion in tiny, fictional Dumpster, Ark. The Fertles are hosting their well-to-do kinfolk from way out west in San Diego, Californey.

In a feat of multi-role madness that would make Eddie Murphy proud, the cast of The Main Thing — Vicki and Steve Farrell and Brett Ihler — will perform all 15 roles between the three of them. In addition to politics, the holidays are one of the mother lodes of comedy gold — fertile ground, if you will. If past shows are any indication, The Main Thing's take on the holiday season will be a family-friendly one that doesn't sacrifice on the funny.

"A Fertle Holiday" runs Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 29.
