PONCAN THEATRE, 104 E. GRAND 7:30PM Stand-up comedian William Lee Martin's holiday show Return of the Nutcracker is coming to the Poncan Theatre in Ponca City, Oklahoma! Martin's Return of the Nutcracker is a throwback to holiday variety shows of old, featuring stand-up, sketch comedy, music, and sing-a-longs to get you in the laughing Christmas mood. Also in the show are comedians MJ Moody, Barry Laminack, and singer / songwriter J.D. Monson. Three years ago, Martin released (still streaming) on Amazon Prime and Apple TV the critically acclaimed smash Christmas special, "The Nutcracker: A Christmas Show based on My Vasectomy." Now it has evolved to become a night of comedy, music, and surprises. "I love Christmastime. Every year my parents would throw huge cocktail parties. The drinks would be flowing. The hi-fi would fill the room with Christmas songs. The room would be full of laughter," Martin said. "We want to recreate those parties just without all the smoke and my uncle passing out under the tree." So, put the kids to bed and treat yourself to a hilarious night at Return of the Nutcracker!
