FESTIVUS The Holiday for the Rest of Us

by | Read by Allen Salkin, Jerry Stiller, Alan Sklar, Eliza Foss, Oliver Wyman

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Bah! Humbug! If you think Festivus, the curmudgeon's December celebration, was made up on "Seinfeld," Allen Salkin, humorist and journalist, wants to disabuse you. Or he pretends to, for all he really wants is for you to enjoy this brief, lighthearted treatise on the history, rituals, and impact of Festivus, which he wrote and--with the help of Jerry Stiller, Alan Sklar, and others--narrates. Alas, he doesn't possess a skill with aural humor that measures up to his knack for the written variety. The production seems forced and staid. Nonetheless, during the holiday season it will provide diversion as you drive to the holiday party you've been dreading. Y.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
