‘O Christmas Tea’ headed to Fraser Auditorium Nov. 19

Show is rich in wordplay, physical comedy and interactive elements, and brings the James & Jamesy comedy duo to the Nickel City

A new Christmas show coming to the Fraser Auditorium on Nov. 19 is a chance to enjoy the “unbridled imagination of beloved British comedy duo James & Jamesy” and their holiday comedy “O Christmas Tea.”

With more than 100,000 tickets sold since 2013, the beloved duo bring their unique and charming style of comedy to Ontario for the first time.

Reminiscent of classic British pantos, O Christmas Tea is rich in wordplay, physical comedy, and interactive elements. But audiences say it is James & Jamesy’s “boundless imagination and endearing chemistry” that provide the real magic and heart of this play.

“The Christmas season is a magical time of year that brings people of all ages together; a time when we are encouraged to dream big, embrace imagination, and celebrate a childlike excitement for merriment,” said Alastair Knowles (Jamesy), half of the award-winning duo.

Embodying optimism and generosity, Jamesy’s Christmas wish for enough tea to serve the entire world is answered and what ensues is an “adventure through a world filled with tea, where reality and imagination are wonderfully intertwined, and the audience find themselves completely caught up in the action.”

With the help of the audience, the duo find innovative and hilarious solutions to stay afloat as they try to make their way back home. 

Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy — with more than 20 comedy awards to their name — bring their audience on a jolly escapade with surprising depth in this joyous celebration of friendship at Christmas.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. at Fraser Auditorium on the grounds of Laurentian University.
