The "most wonderful time of the year" is anything but for many. A rant pack of writers and comedians voice their yuletide dissent in a funny collection of audio essays. Whether it's Jews trying to fit into baffling and envied Christmas traditions or drunk, eccentric families, THE WORST NOEL is a snarky listen for any Grinch-hearted holiday player. "I'll Have Christmas with the Works on Rye," "Hold the Ham and Jesus," "That's Just About ENOUGH Figgy Pudding, Actually," and "The Jew Who Cooked Ham for Christmas" epitomize the pained readings by these merry gentlemen and women. While not all of the authors are skilled readers, their conviction, their angst, their dark night of the tinsel shine through in every case.
