About The Show

Ringing in the holidays, Huggable Riot rounds out their first year of shows at the Second City with their 25th Original Revue, The Coal Kids.

In this one act sketch show, the writer/performers of The Coal Kids take swings at holiday traditions and poke fun at the absurdities that we all choose to continue every year. Things go off the rails quickly, moving from a "Home for the Holidays" escape room, to Nazareth, to the much needed HR meeting after the company holiday party.

This year, be the one to get the Coal, Friday nights in December, 10 PM in the Blackout Cabaret.

Written and Performed by: Ryan Alkire, Keiter Liriano, Sarah-Jean Peters, Roxi Pope, Colin Stanley, Tori Wynn

Directed by: Hunter Larrison

Head Writer: Amy Anderson
